Lavender Briggs
5’11”, Guard
Orem, Utah
ProspectsNation.com Rating: 4 star

Brandon Clay Scouting Take – Briggs brings size and athleticism to the back court for the Gators. Her defensive versatility should immediately translate to Southeastern Conference play. Her offensive skill set is a spot of hope as well. She is a proven slasher who also shows flashes of range from beyond the arc.

Brylee Bartram
5’8″, Guard
Seffner, Florida
ProspectsNation.com Rating: 4 star

Coach Hemi’s Take – Bartram projects to be an ELITE shooting specialist in Gainesville. She has the potential to be at the top of 3-pointers made and in percentage in the SEC, similar to Hannah Cook did at the University of Alabama in years past. Given Newbauer’s success at using shooters in his offense in the past, Bartram projects to be ideal fit for the Gators.

Cavina Rickards
5’9″, Guard
Middle Village, New York
ProspectsNation.com Rating: 4-star

Evaluation not currently available

Faith Dut
6’4″, Center
Surrey, British Columbia
ProspectsNation.com Rating: 4-star

Brandon Clay Scouting Take – Dut has the size needed to play at high levels in this game. Her physical tools should translate to immediate playing time. However, skill development will be essential for her to make a consistent impact.
