Date: April 23, 2021 
Location: Under Armour Circuit (Birmingham, Alabama) 
Evaluator: Brandon Clay 

This was our staff’s first time seeing Ijiwoye play for Arizona Elite after training with her in Seattle earlier in the year. She played her position at the point exactly how we expected given her style and skill set. Ijiwoye has the ability to lead a team from the point guard spot. Her latest scholarship offer came from South Florida late last week. 

Date: January 2021
Location: Elite Is Earned Showcase (Seattle, Washington)
Evaluator: Brandon Clay

Ijiwoye is a powerful prospect at the PG spot who reminds us of Diamond Johnson in the Class of 2020. Before Ijiwoye arrived in Seattle, current BClayRecruiting member Meg Newman checked in to let our staff know just how talented Shai is. Newman knows talent. Ijiwoye has a chance to be an elite option with a jumper that makes it hard for defenses to keep her in check.
