South Carolina adds 2 top-15 recruits for next year
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina coach Dawn Staley hasn’t sat still in her first season without consensus national player of the year A’ja Wilson.
Staley’s Gamecocks announced a pair of five-star signings in 6-foot-3 forward Laeticia Amihere and 6-foot guard Brea Beal.
Amihere is from Milton, Ontario, and made a splash as a 15-year-old in 2017 when she became the first Canadian woman to dunk in a game. She is rated the No. 10 prospect overall by ESPN.
Beal, from Rock Island, Illinois, was her state’s Ms. Basketball each of the past two years. She is ranked No. 13 overall by ESPN.
Staley said both will make a significant impact to the Gamecock program.
