Just a month ago was talking to @Jordy about Rivers.Finally checked out some video of Rivers playing. Oh boy! I know Azzi Fudd is #1 in this class by a mile, but I am a sucker for Saniya's length and pogo-stick athleticism! And Rivers looks far more than just an athlete— seems to have tight handles, good shooting ability, and overall hoops instincts to boot. Perhaps a better and much more advanced at this stage version of UCLA's Michaela Onyenwere (who like Gabby Williams was a big track star in HS in addition to hoops).
If Saniya Rivers ends up at South Carolina (just assuming they're in the mix b/c of location) she might be just as much a force as any of their spectacular 2018 recruits in college.
As you already know I'm kind of a defensive bigot. I like Miles, but Rivers has a set of defensive tools that if placed in the hands of a master craftsman could be Moriah Jefferson (NDPOY) special. There is only one established craftsman/woman in the southern US. Grasshopper might have to venture north to fulfill her true destiny.
