That would be four Pac-12 teams. Of course, Michelle does live in the East Bay, just down the road from me ...

UCLA is interesting but they have a lot to prove. I'm not even sure they will end up as the 4th best P12 team.

Oregon at #1 is probably right. The west coast bias is shown imo with the spots of the other three teams Laughing

Nneka's a good comparison for Onyenwere. She has been listed at 5'11 and 6'0 though, so I'm guessing she'll make a great true SF in the pros, especially as her shooting continues to develop. It'd be nice for her sake if UCLA ever got some true post players to work with, they're such a short team (only two players out of 14 listed above 6'1!).

Louisville has a ton of talent, and even though I would think they have a lot to prove, I would have them in the Top Ten to start the season, over UCLA.

Might even put Florida State over UCLA right now, too.

I don't the PAC 12 is going to be overrated though.

Fun season ahead!

The link is dated October 2, 2019, but it makes me wonder if Michelle Smith compiled her rankings and wrote the analysis prior to September 26, 2019 -- the date on which Louisville announced that Georgia Tech transfers Elizabeth Balogun and Elizabeth Dixon were granted waivers by the NCAA and would be eligible immediately for the 2019-20 season.

Certainly those two additions to an already talented team (despite losing Asia Durr and two solid starters), along with the return of Yacine Diop from injury, make Louisville much more dangerous -- and easily a top ten team in my estimation.

Or perhaps Smith disagrees.

Has anyone seen/heard/read any prognostications about how SC's top recruiting class might realistically be expected to impact their team in the short run?

Also, any valid indicators on who will provide MD with their best competition in the Big 10?

Two Louisville WBB freshmen, Nyah Green (top-25 ranked in the 2019 class) and Ramani Parker, will redshirt this season
