Alexis Rodriguez – (Lights Out) San Fernando, CA – 5’0 G – Rodriguez is the little player that makes big impacts. She handles the ball well and knows how to create really well for herself, her transition game is remarkable. Rodriguez is a good scorer shoots the three well and gets to the basketball at will.
Torriana Nesbit – 5’4 G – Nesbit is a smooth player that doesn’t look like she does much, but does a lot. Plays good solid physical defense and always seems to be in the right place at the right time.
Kiana Hamilton-Fisher – 5’5 G – Fisher is the perfect all-purpose player. Does all the little things which makes BIG impacts on the game and plays hard on both sides of the ball. Fisher runs the floor well and plays with a energy level that creates problems for her opponents.
Mackenzie Iwahashi – 5’0 G – Iwahashi is a fast little guard that has a great nitch for the game. She controls the floor well and knows how to run her offense. Plays good defense and doesn’t take plays off.
Kyra Jacks – 5’7 – Wing – Jacks is a very wiry versatile player that is stronger than she appears. She can beat defenders off the bounce and has nice foot work around the rim. She is a very physical player that shows the ability to dominate the boards playing against players her size an bigger, very aggressive on both sides of the ball.
Charisma Osborne – 5’6 G 2019 – GBL Lady Rebels (Los Angeles, CA): Osborne is a game changer, she has a lethal combination of size, skill and her athleticism is impressive. She explodes in the open court (reminiscent of John Wall while in high school) and she can cover a lot of ground in a hurry.
Kaci Scott – 5’6 Wing – 2020 – GBL Lady Rebels (Los Angeles, CA): Scott is a long athletic player that can do just about everything you could ask for around the rim. Her energy level is awesome and her ability to rebound on both sides of the ball is good. The lefty Wing can shoot the three when open and can finish at the rim in transition. Scott is only a 6th grader and that’s the scary part, as she continues to grow and development the sky’s the limit.
Jade Johnson – 5’10 SF – 2018 Cal Sparks (Los Angeles, CA): Johnson is a long athletic SF with excellent size. She can finish on the break with her length and athleticism. She really does her damage around the rim, altering shots cleaning up the boards on both sides of the ball. When Johnson develops a better handle on the ball and masters the 15ft game she will definitely be a top 100 player in her class.
Leonna Logan 5’6 G 2019 – Cal Sparks Elite (Los Angeles, CA): Logan plays with great energy at both ends. She attacks the bucket with a vengeance and finishes strong. She can penetrate effectively with either hand and he has the strength, tenacity, and feel to score against length. Logan is another prospect in the 2019 class that shows good signs for the future of girls basketball.
