Class of 2019 wing Kimia Carter of Chattanooga, Tennessee, committed to Stetson University last week. The power wing played for Team Elite EYBL this summer on the circuit. Carter earned an offer from the previous staff at Ole Miss and a handful of other schools from across the nation before settling on the Atlantic Sun Conference school.

Coach Hemi’s Take

Coach Lynn Bria has great success at recruiting fringe Power 5 Conference prospects in years past. Carter’s physical presence makes her a tough match-up for many perimeter defenders. She is a consistent interior scorer off the drive and offensive put-backs. Her outside shot, which was an area of improvement, has turned into a skill that opponents must pay attention to consistently.

Class of 2019 guard Emma Drash of Atlanta, Georgia, committed to first year coach Gene Hill at Georgia State University. The 5-foot-6 shooting specialist plays for high school state power St. Pius X and coach Kyle Snipes during the school season.

Coach Hemi’s Take

Drash cemented her reputation as one of the state’s top shooting specialists during the travel ball season. We saw her put up 30 plus points at #PSBPreSeason on seven 3-pointers. Drash next-level shooting ability that will be a nice asset for coach Hill in upcoming seasons.

Class of 2019 forward NaKaya Hughes of Champaign, Illinois, committed to in-state Division-II program University of Illinois-Springfield. She played for the Indy Lady Gym Rats on the travel circuit and at Saint Thomas More during the school year.

Coach Hemi’s Take

Hughes is a versatile forward who brings a high energy attitude to the court consistently. She is a consistent rebounder and is agile enough to defend on the perimeter. Her mobility on the offensive end allows her to play with her back to the basket or facing up at the top of the key. She projects to be an instant contributor for the Prairie Stars.
