Kelly Boyle, Minnesota Metro Stars 2023 Pryor

5'7" 2023, Hopkins HS (MN)

-Run the offense: check. Come up with big shots: check. Compete on both ends of the floor: check. Boyle is a competitor as well as an exceptional floor general for Metro Stars. In a battle with All Iowa Attack 2023 EYBL, she delivered when needed in the win. Had 10 points & 3 rebounds, but her biggest strength is that she's always under control with the ball in her hands and never rattles while creating looks for her teammates. A strong shooter from across the perimeter, she had a pair of threes off the left wing and displayed a floater on the move.

 

Karis Finley, All Iowa Attack 2025 Nike Red

5'9" 2026 Guard

-Finley came up with a strong 12 point/7 rebound effort in Attack's win over Minnesota Stars 2026 Hill. The lanky Guard hit twice off catch/shoot play, once from the left corner, once from the right wing. Plus rebounder off the wings with her length and athleticism. Gets to the wing in transition, runs the floor, and can finish off the edges. Also got to the line and connected four times. Very promising prospect who's playing at a quality level with one of the top 2025 programs in the region, all while playing up a class.

 

Taryn French, ETG Midwest Elite 2025

5'5" 2026 Guard

-When younger players play up an age level I always look to see what dimension they bring to the team. Didn't take long to see that French is a sniper off the wings, where she connected four times in one of the best games of the weekend as ETG faced Wisconsin Flight Elite 2025 EYBL. Connected three times off the left wing and another off the right. Added a transition bucket to round out her scoring. College coaches will want to get her on their view list as her stock will rise quickly the more she gets on college coaches radars with her shooting prowess.

 

Kate Holmquist, North Tartan 2026 Nike

2026, Maple Grove HS (MN)

-The future is certainly bright for Holmquist, and included in her strong weekend at Summer Jam was a 13 point effort in the opening round win over Team Wisconsin 2026 Vadnais. She has an advanced scoring skill set from the arc, the mid-range and finishing in the paint. Splashed a pair of threes from the top of the key. On the move, she is fluid, both in transition and within the set offense. Plucked a steal and score in the passing lanes defensively. Among a deep group of Maple Grove talents who project as Division I talents..

 

Savanna Jones, Minnesota Metro Stars 2023 Pryor

6'1" 2023, Eden Prairie HS (MN)

-Jones came up big when her team needed her the most, in the Summer Jam Anchor Lake Division Championship game win over North Tartan 2023 EYBL, where she delivered 14 points, including the game-winning layup in double overtime and 8 rebounds. Showed a nice shooting touch in her short and mid-range game with a series of jumpers off the baseline and the left wing. Moves well without the ball in her hands, including getting out into the transition game from the front court and adding another hoop on a quick back-cut. Potential Division I prospect has had a good season to date with Metro Stars.

 

Rowan Klesmit, Wisconsin Flight Elite 2026 Nike

2026, Neenah HS (WI)

-In a back and forth battle with Minnesota Fury 2026 Blue, Klesmit registered 13 points, one of four Flight players in double-figures. Had a catch and shoot triple out of the left corner, but rest of her scoring was a great mix of finishes. Added a baseline jumper, a curl cut to the rim for a finish and a little runner off the bounce. Quality prospect who projects out as a Division I talent with her ability to adapt her game to what the defense gives her. Sees the floor with the ball in her hands or off the ball on the wings.

 

Jaeden Pratt, Kingdom Hoops 2024 Elite

5'8" 2025 Guard, Ankeny Centennial HS (IA)

-Anytime a Guard comes up with an 11 rebound game, they are bound to make our Top Perfromers list. The fact that she did it against tournament runners-up North Tartan makes it all the more impressive. The Division I level talent has a very well-rounded game. She's strong and athletic, knows how to score the ball, including a pair of threes off the right wing amongst her 7 points and is willing to play physically off the bounce and on the defensive end of the floor. Poised for a break-out season at Ankeny Centennial in her Sophomore season.

 

Skyler Volmer, SD Network 2024 Kasib

5'9" 2024 Point Guard, Lymon HS (SD)

-In my first viewing of Volmer this season, I walked away very impressed with the scholarship level talent. Really shoots the ball extremely well from the point guard or two guard spots. Connected five times from the arc, off both wings as well as the top of the key. Like the way she competed on the glass, pulling down team best six boards in loss to Nebraska Attack 2024 UAA. Has a little bounce in her step on the move and is fluid with her handles and ability to run an offense and trigger the transition game.

 

 

Lauren Walker, Team Iowa 2025 Blue Star

5'8" 2025 Guard, Central DeWitt HS (IA)

-Walker had a strong game, scoring 15 points in a tough one-point loss to Wisconsin Flight Elite 2025 EYBL. Stretched the floor four times from three. All four of her triples were off the right wing, where she shows a smooth release and range. Scholarship talent who could grow further in her recruiting. Can work from either Guard spot effectively. Had a very productive weekend at a loaded Summer Jam. Would expect her to further her recruiting value as she steps into the lead role for her Sophomore season at Central DeWitt this season as the leading returning scorer.

 

Rainey Welson, North Tartan 2024 EYBL

5'10" 2025 Guard, Hortonville HS (WI)

-Welson is among the elite talents in the 2025 class, and showed her ability to take over and control a game in North Tartan's win over Kingdom Hoops 2024 Elite. She recorded 19 points in the win, and cashed in three times from the arc. One of the toughest competitors I've evaluated this season, she brings energy and intensity every time she hits the floor. Physical Guard who will never shy away from contact. She is equally dangerous in the half-court and transition games. Some of the best court vision on the move in the region. Special talent.
