In part 1 of my look at the top female basketball prospects in the state of Montana I looked at the girls who have so far committed to D-1 programs. In part two I will look at the rest of female 2011 Montana athlete in the state who may be the top basketball prospects. I am listing them in alphabetic order.
Jenna Banks 5-5 Bozeman point guard
Gets lost in the shuffle on a very good team but a solid NAIA point guard prospect. Good shooter.
Rachelle Bennett 5-7 Joliet shooting guard
Nice scorer very good athlete most likely NAIA talent.
Blaire Brookshire 5-11 Stevensville forward
A girl who has gathered attention early in her high school career, but appears to be attracting NAIA attention.
Kaylee Goggins 6-2 Shepherd center
Another big girl who helped her stock in AAU ball this summer. Does a little bit of everything on the court. Has quick hands and disrupts the passing lanes. Solid D-2 talent.
Monica Grimsrud 6-1 Helena high power forward center
Should be a solid scorer and rebounder at the NAIA level.
Morgan Klose 5-9 Fairview guard
Can be an explosive scorer when on her game. Good three point shooter. Is solid NAIA talent may be D-2
Janiel Olson 5-10 Billings West small forward
A very good player who has to share the spot light with Muri. A streaky shooter who is most likely has D-2 talent but could play D-1 on the right team.
Taylor Parker 6-1 Bozeman power forward
I like Parker more than most. She can score the ball and is pretty active on the court. She is a solid NAIA player but I think she could also play at the D-2 level. Another player to watch.
Quinn Peoples 5-11 Butte Central forward
Good size and a good shooter, and a smart player, should do well at the NAIA level.
Maggie Rickman 6-0 Helena Capital power forward
Rickman might be my favorite under recruited player this year. She could challenge Jackie Elliot as the best athlete in the state. I think she has D-1 potential, but has committed to Carroll
Bailey Snelling 5-6 Harlowton shooting guard
She has been on a lot of schools recruiting radar since her sophomore year. A good basketball player who may be a little to short for D-1 ball. Committed to Carroll
Alison Sullivan 6-2 CMR power forward /center
Did a lot to improve her profile this summer. Solid big player with good mobility. Solid D-2 talent but could play D-1 ball for the right team. One to watch this winter.
