Signing Day

Postby drumstix2388 » Thu Nov 14, 2019 5:04 pm

The BG women got a signed NLI from a whopping six high school seniors yesterday. Fralick will really have a team full of her own recruits by year three.

Signing yesterday were:

Nyla Hampton, 5'7" PG, Huber Heights, OH
Sophie Dzieken, 6'2" F, Brighton, MI
Olivia Hill, 6'0" F, Palatine, IL
Lexi Fleming, 5'5" PG, Cincinnati, OH
Jasmine Clerkley, 5'11" F, Okemos, MI
Kenzie Lewis, 5'10 G, Williamston, MI

Some of these are really good gets. Clerkley was highly recruited and was a one time commit of Michigan State. Most of the others had several other offers from MAC or Horizon League schools.
BG '10

Attended more games than any responsible student should have.

I like the photo with Dzieken doing the Wilt pose (palming two balls)...this class will likely define Fralick's tenure

Congratulations and good luck to all the new Lady Falcons!

Just an observation but Coach Fralick seems to bring in a certain type of solid player but hasn't landed what I would consider a "difference maker." But maybe one of these develops into that type of player?

These six are all typical of the last few classes, with most averaging in the 15 ppg range. Maybe that's her recruiting strategy or she can't land that big-time scorer? Curt was always able to get a Ally Mann, Kate Archer or Lauren Prochaska that had a high school pedigree as a prolific scorer. Haven't seen that type of -player in our recent classes. Curt and his staff were so good at finding those type of players that the Power 5 schools missed or ignored, and then developed them so well.

Question... currently the roster shows THREE seniors plus. RS jr ( current leading scorer). How do SIX freshmen fit the roster next yr.?
Logic would say some of other kids will also be gone. (Transfers- cuts?)

Good observation. But part of the logjam is reduced as there are only 14 scholarships of the 15 in use. I have also read that Dever is not on a WBB scholarship but either a walkon or other scholarship assistance. Still leaves 1 over.

The Detroit Free Press listed the top girls basketball players in the state today. The Three BG recruits are listed in the top 25. Kenzie Lewis is #14, Jasmine Clerkley is #17, and Sophie Dziekan checks in at #22. Things are looking up.
