“I think she’s a top-10 draft pick, but a lot of that in the WNBA side depends on how many of the underclassmen decided to declare and come out. That will affect her draft status because there are some pretty high level/high profile juniors that are looking at maybe being done for the season and entering the draft, so some of that will change but from what I’ve heard from everybody she’ll be between 10-20 which is pretty impressive for a kid from Freeland, Michigan. She’s had to play in the shadows of Aerial (Powers) for three years. I don’t think many people knew how good she was. I’ve had so many media and scouts say ‘we had no idea’, it’s because she put the team first. Those two were a dynamic duo and she was sort of the compliment to Aerial and now she’s in that role and you can see what she can really do.”
