Maddy Blaylark, Minnesota Stars 2026 Hill

2026, DeLaSalle HS (MN)

-Blaylark has really began to emerge as the season has continued. She had a tremendous effort against All Iowa Attack 2025 Nike Red. Playing against older competition, she was able to carry a lot of the offensive weight for Stars, pouring in 19 points and adding 4 rebounds. Connected four times from deep, twice from the top and twice off the left side. Quickly rising her way up into a Division I prospect. Flashed a smooth turn-around jumper among her other scores. Definitely a player who has made the most of this AAU/Club season.


Ava Darling, Wisconsin Impact 2023 Sid

5'7" 2023 Guard, Waukesha West HS (WI)

-Despite a one-point loss against Minnesota Stars 2023 Reineke it was a double-double performance for Darling, who totaled 11 points and 11 rebounds. She did her damage on drives throughout the game, from both the half-court and transition games. Added a steal and score and 3 free throws for her final scoring total. Division III prospect who competes on both ends of the court.


Samantha Davis, Wisconsin Flight Elite 2026 Nike

5'10" 2026

-Davis has emerged as one of the top 2026s in the region and her play (15 points & 12 rebounds) were both game highs in Flight's 1 point loss to Minnesota Fury 2026 Blue. She is tremendous off the bounce and has hops to be a dominant force on the glass. When attacking off the baseline she showed both a pull-up jumper and a little hook in the paint. Hard to keep in front of defensively when she puts it on the floor, she has a strong frame and tight handles. Flashed range from three out of the left corner. Elite rebounder.


Presley Douglas, ETG Midwest Elite 2025

5'6" 2025 Shooting Guard/Point Guard, Skutt Catholic HS (NE)

-In one of the best games of the weekend Douglas had a strong performance with 11 points & 9 rebounds in a one-point loss to Wisconsin Flight Elite 2025. Despite being a smaller Guard she really tracks the ball down on the glass and isn't afraid to fight for extra possessions. Connected twice from the wings, once off each side. Had a transition score, and is fluid on the break. Her biggest score was a strong drive that knotted the game at 53 all late. Scholarship level prospect who will likely draw Division I interest.


Savannah Gage, Kingdom Hoops 2024 Elite

5'11" 2025 Guard, Ankeny HS (IA)

-Gage had a tremendous outing against North Tartan 2024 EYBL in a hard-fought loss in one of the events best first-round games. She had 17 points in the wire to wire battle. A scorer who can create for herself and has a variety of finishing moves. Inflicted a lot of damage inside the arc, proving especially dangerous off the wings and baseline. Had strong drives off the baseline as well as with a jumper. Attacks with confidence off the wing and can maintain her balance in traffic. Division I prospect. Can also connect from the arc when given cushion, including a three from straight-away.


Angel Hill, Minnesota Stars 2024 Bjorgaard

2024, Minnehaha Academy HS (MN)

-Hill was in double-figures three times during Summer Jam including a 12 point effort in the opening round versus eventual champion All Iowa Attack 2024 EYBL. Scored three times on half-court drives, including a pair of long drives off the wing and another she finished with a nice reverse layup. Also dangerous as a wing in the transition game, where she runs the floor well and can attack with the ball in her hands or off of the wing. Averaged 13 PPG as a Sophomore at Minnehaha Academy. Scholarship level talent.


Cail Jahnke, North Tartan 2026 Nike

2026 Guard, St Michael-Albertville HS (MN)

-Jahnke was dynamic in the transition game for North Tartan in their opening round win over Team Wisconsin 2026 Vadnais. Finished the game with 14 points, with the bulk of her damage being done on the break. Scored four different times in the transition game and also added a steal and score for another basket. One of the top 2026 talents in Minnesota, Jahnke saw a few varsity minutes last season at Class AAAA State Runner-Up STMA. Likely Division I target down the road.


Tierney Madigan, Wisconsin Flight Elite 2025 EYBL

5'10" 2025 Small Forward, Laconia HS (WI)

-In an outstanding quarterfinal win over Team Iowa 2025 Blue Star Madigan had a stellar 14 points/7 rebound performance. Division I prospect. Flashed range from the arc off the left wing, but did most of her scoring in transition and by crashing the offensive glass. Had a pair of finishes on the break and a pair of other scores on offensive boards and finishes in traffic. Doesn't need plays run for her to be a productive scorer, great understanding of her scoring skills & working within the system. Also averaged over 11 PPG as a Freshman at Laconia.


Jordan Metzler, Nebraska Attack 2024 UAA

5'5" 2024, Wakefield HS (NE)

-In a 52-33 win over SD Network 2024 Kasib, Metzler delivered from the arc 4 times on her way to a 14 point outing. The scholarship level Guard hit from left wing a pair of times, and added two more from the elbows extended. Also tacked on a nice transition finish. Led Wakefield in scoring as a Sophomore at better than 12 PPG. A little on the smaller side from the Guard spot, she still rebounds the position at a quality level, she had 5 in this evaluation and also recorded better than 4 RPG during the 2021-22 season.


Mary Stroebel, Wisconsin Impact 2024 Kelley

5'9" 2024 Guard, Cedarburg HS (WI)

-In a battle of two of Wisconsin's top 2024 teams Stroebel had a 13 point/3 rebound effort in a tough loss to Wisconsin Flight Elite 2024 EYBL. She connected three times from the arc, once off either wing and a left corner one too. Good candidate for catch and shoot play. Added a mid-lane floater off a drive and an offensive rebound put-back. Double-digit scorer as Freshman at Cedarburg. Division I caliber talent with good size and a matching skill set off the wing.
