that Kenny Brooks and the Women's Basketball program just signed the #6 recruiting class IN THE COUNTRY
Brooks went tall for this class, across the board, as the shortest is Lexi Blue, a 6-2 Point Guard rated 95 by Hoopgurlz, the #38 prospect in the country, and the third highest rated recruit in VT history (Kitley, #33, 97; Sheppard, #34, 97).
Next tallest is 4* Myah Hazelton, a 6-4 Forwards who committed back in 2022, and will join a very crowded frontcourt.
But the tower of the group is 6-7 Portuguese Center Clara Silva, who some scouts have stated that if she had been born in the USA, she'd not only be a 5* prospect, but a top-10, with several others calling Silva the best international player and best center in the 2024 recruiting cycle, which if that is the case, would put her in the top 5, at a projected rating of 98.
All that height means that in the 24-25 (and 25-26 (and 26-27)) season, Brooks could conceivably have five players on the court (Blue, Baker, Hazelton, Strack, Silva) who are all 6-2 or taller. Based on that, expect a very heavy push towards guards over the next class or two.
