5’10 ’25 Justice Zimmerman (Carolina All-Stars)

There are certain players who stand out as natural leaders, and Zimmerman is certainly applicable to this notion. She’s a strong, high-motor wing/forward who does everything on the court. Zimmerman communicates at all times, willingly makes hustle plays, and fills in the gaps whenever necessary. She finishes around the basket and hits shots along the perimeter, but also looks to set up others whenever possible. Zimmerman utilizes her body well to outwork opponents on the glass and alter shots defensively. Her nonstop energy allows her to shine basically every time she’s on the court.

5’7 ’27 Amayah Barnes (Carolina All-Stars)

In terms of IQ, poise, and understanding of how to control a game, Barnes was easily among the best. She’s an all-around guard who handles the ball extremely well while picking her spots as a scorer and generating opportunities for others. Barnes touches the paint whenever she desires and finishes very well around the basket, but also hits jumpers and locates open teammates with consistency. She’s a tough defender with excellent instincts, both at the point of attack and when defending away from the ball. Add in the fact that she played up a level, and it was easy to be impressed with Barnes.

6’3 ’25 Camryn Claxton (SC Lady Sixers)

Between her size, length, mobility, and incredible defensive presence, it’s easy to see the appeal of Claxton. She is a phenomenal rim-protector with the necessary timing, aggression, and feel to properly anchor the paint. Claxton involves herself in the rebounding battle and runs the floor well in transition. She’s a capable finisher and midrange shooter but truly doesn’t require offensive touches to make an impact. Claxton still has a lot of potential as a long-term prospect.

5’8 ’25 Margaret Blythe (EA Lady Stars)

Given her ability to score and create for others, it should come as no surprise to see Blythe listed here. She dictated the offensive action while scoring in an extremely impressive manner from all levels. Blythe utilized her handle to break down opponents and touch the paint, but also knocked down shots from midrange and beyond the arc. She provided quality effort defensively and regularly looked to push the break in transition. Blythe clearly has the tools to be a college player.
