Jordan Wood Commits to Michigan State:

The 6-foot-2 forward hails from Waukegan, Illinois and plays for Carmel Catholic High School in Mundelein, Illinois, located to the north of Chicago. Back in her freshman season, Wood averaged 14.5 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.

Wood is described as an agile rebounder who can play as a finesse-four and attack in the transition game. She can stretch the defense with her play from the arc and has lots of potential as she continues to grow in her game.
[...]
Wood picked the Michigan State Spartans over plenty of Division I offers, including several fellow Big Ten programs. The Michigan Wolverines, Illinois Fighting Illini, Ohio State Buckeyes, Wisconsin Badgers and Minnesota Golden Gophers. Other schools outside of the conference were also interested, as DePaul, Marquette, UCLA, Florida State, Florida, Arizona and Arizona State all made offers to Wood, among others.

I would expect this means a FULL COURT PRESS on trying to get Taylor Woodson and Tessa Johnson in the state as today alone the #3 and #4 players in the class of 2023 committed out of state (Sanders at Colorado and NuNu at Stanford)

This was already mentioned in the general recruiting thread, but Audi Crooks was on an unofficial visit.

Here is the good and bad (for now) for class of 2023.

In teams of in-state

Bad:
three of four top players in the class have committed out of state.

#2 Instate- Taylor Woodson- Michigan
#3 Instate- NuNu Agara- Stanford
#4 Instate- Kennedy Sanders- Colorado

Good:

The #1 player in the state, Tessa Johnson, is still on the board and heavily considering Gophers. She is close with 2022 commits Mara Braun and Amaya Battle so some feel Gophers are the favorite to land her, however as we have learned as Gopher fans, nothing is official till it's official.

Audi Crooks recently visited, a fantastic post player in the midwest. It has been stated she is not wanting to travel a far distance from Home, and her HS is about 3 hours from Williams Arena so not exactly a distance that could remove them from consideration.

Here is the known offers/still out there for class of 2023. Overall guessing a 2-3 player class, maybe even 1-2 and leaving openings for transfer portal.

Offered/In-state:

Tessa Johnson-
St. Michael/Albertville-5’9 Guard

Out of State Offers:

Kymora Johnson,
5’7 G, St. Anne’s-Belfield School (VA) ESPN Ranked 32 (out of Super 60)

Jasmine Brown, 5’9 G, Joliet Catholic HS (IL) ESPN Ranked #44 (out of Super 60)

Eve Fiala, 6’4 C, Indiana HS (PA) ESPN Ranked #54 (out of Super 60)

Janae Kent, 6’1 W, Oak Forest HS (IL) ESPN Ranked #57 (out of Super 60)

Laila Hull, 6’1 F, Zionsville (IN) ESPN Ranked #58 (out of Super 60)

Audi Crooks, 6’3 P, Bishop Garrigan HS (IA) ESPN Ranked #59 (out of Super 60)

Logan Nissley, 5’10 G, Century HS (ND)

Alyssa Latham, 6’1 F, Homewood-Flossmoor HS (IL)

The Crooks gal would be a HR. She is big, mobile and a better HS player then Ciziano or the kid from Byron at this stage.

Congrats to ladies picking the Gophers or going elsewhere. Coach Whalen and her staff are out there working hard and doing their best. We get who we get and wish the rest the best of luck at their school of choice.

Go, Gophers!
