Players: 2026 Tristan Rickenbacker / 2027 Morgan Herbert

Lady Phenom went out to Raleigh over the weekend to check out the Deep South Classic, as teams from all over came to compete and we got a great chance to learn new talent. Here, we will dive into players that we saw and impressed at the event.

We had a great opportunity to check out two prospects that we believe will only continue to attract Division I attention and already hold multiple offers. 2026 Tristan Rickenbacker and 2027 Morgan Herbert were two players from Virginia that we had a great chance to watch at the event and were able to flourish in a variety of ways.

When talking about Rickenbacker, she was incredibly impressive with her ability to be such a force on the court. She brings versatility to the court and can operate from multiple areas on the court, but she also has the frame to be a real force down low and on the boards as well.  When watching her, she was all over the boards and brought a physical presence to the court on both sides of the floor but was also comfortable stepping outside as well.  What also impressed us was her decision-making, as she was able to find open teammates when the scoring opportunity wasn’t there.

And then, we were able to learn about the younger prospect in 2027 Morgan Herbert, and one could clearly see that this is a prospect that offers a lot and is comfortable in making an impact in a variety of ways. She has good size and she is comfortable in playing inside and out, as well as defending multiple positions. Herbert was able to be effective in getting inside, creating off the bounce and finishing, but also stepping out and knocking down shots as well.

Both really flourished on the court, and already hold D1 offers. Rickenbacker holds offers from Longwood, Appalachian State, William & Mary, Monmouth, Radford, and several others. Herbert holds offers from Radford, Mount St. Mary’s, and William & Mary.  Both should be big-time targets in the coming years and clearly put their names on our radar.
