It was in March of 2020 at the Tennessee girl's basketball state tournament that I learned that life as we knew it was going to shut down for the next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic caused uncertainty from everyone including coaches and prospects with recruiting basically being limited to watching prospects on film. As it appears, this July will be back to normal at full capacity and an opportunity for players to get their names out there.
This article features a few senior prospects that are worth checking out in July.
Keeleigh Rogers - 5'10 Guard - Farragut/TN Flight Trotters
Rogers is a floor general that makes great passes and decisions with the ball. She has great size and a nice skill set at the guard position. There is nothing flashy to what she does, she just gets the job done. She is a great rebounder and relentless competitor on both ends of the floor. I fully expect Rogers to pick up a handful of Division 1 offers by the end of July.
Kamil Collier - 6' Forward - Ensworth/Flight Silver 17U EYBL
Collier is a skilled forward that is capable of scoring at all three levels. Her consistent jump shot extends beyond the arc. While she may lack in superior athleticism, she more than makes up for it with a skill set that translates well. She offers nice back to the basket moves with crafty footwork and is also a great pick and pop player. She's had a solid travel season this year and certainly expect college coaches to be circling her name during this live evaluation period.
Madison Hart - 5'11 Forward - Gibson County/Tennessee Blazers
Madison was a Miss Basketball finalist last year in Class A as a junior and is one of the most relentless players on the court that you will find in the state. She battles for every rebound, finishes well through contact, and offers plenty of upside for college coaches. Hart is at one of the top high school programs in the state and continues to progress each year as a player. She is a must watch this July!
