Fresh off this year’s Team USA roster announcements, we’ve taken another look at the top recruits in the class of 2023.

Our mission is to keep you abreast of all the movement and trends as we move through the 2022-23 NCAA recruiting calendar. We hope you’ll follow along.

1. Mikaylah Williams, 6-1 guard, Parkway (La.)

Recently named to USA Basketball’s U17 national team, Williams is choosing between five schools — Baylor, Duke, LSU, Ole Miss and Texas A&M.

2. Juju Watkins, 6-2 guard, Sierra Canyon (Calif.)

The LA Times Girls Basketball Player of the Year will once again play for Team USA this summer before serving as the anchor of an electric Sierra Canyon squad. Watkins’ presence, on any team she plays for, is game-changing.

3. Jadyn Donovan, 6-foot guard, Sidwell Friends School (Washington, D.C.)

A guard who can do absolutely everything? That’s the type of player every college team needs. Donovan has yet to choose a school, but she’ll surely generate even more interest this summer on Team USA.

4. Breya Cunningham, 6-4 forward, La Jolla Country Day (Calif.)

Difficult to guard and always stepping up, Cunningham earned a spot on the Team USA U17 roster alongside Jada Williams. They make up one of two pairs of high school teammates to represent the U.S. this summer.

5. Aalyah Del Rosario, 6-5 post, Trenton Catholic (N.J.)

Team USA’s U18 Women’s team has a lot of star power, but coach Joni Taylor has one of the most intriguing members of the Class of 2023 in Del Rosario.
