There was much minor movement on the list. Some of it to adjust for international players added, namely, Maeva Djaldi-Tabdi, Satou Sabally, Alba Prieto, and Sylvia Serrat. The biggest move was probably Maeva Djaldi-Tabdi from France, who played on their U17 team. She went from not ranked to 27. She will be playing at Syracuse.

Aside from adding international players, there was a general move away from lesser known women’s basketball programs and moving up recruits from the better programs. In a major move Connecticut’s Andra Espinoza-Hunter went from 38 to 16, and, of course, our Mikayla Vaughn went from 90 to 56. Kelsey Marshall (Miami) went from 81 to 44.

Moving the other way were Vivian Gray (Fort Lewis) from 26 to 45, Alasia Styles (California) from 43 to 90, and Jasmine Jones (Loyola Marymount) from 50 to 91. Jaelynn Penn (Indiana) went from 39 to 71.

For players who left the list, the theme again seemed to be reassessment of players who went with lesser ranked programs, as well as bringing some players more in line with other rating services. Those who fell off were:
Destiny Harden (West Virginia) from 57 to not ranked
Abby Meyers (Princeton) was 60, other rating services did not rank her in top 100
Myah Pace (San Diego) was 66, other rating services did not rank her in top 100
Lauryn Satterwhite (Northwestern) 79, again, this was higher than other rating services
Danae Miller (UC-Santa Barbara) 87
Sage Stobbart (UC Davis) 93
Jo’nah Johnson (Central Oklahoma) 91
Julia Blackshell-Fair (Houston) 92
