Sydney Parrish commits to Oregon. ESPN #11 in 2020.
“#1 guard” caught my eye, but they consider G and PG different so that explains it.

This strikes me as a huge pickup because Graves was able to get someone to go west. So he’s not just getting west coasters and international— he’s now a real national player.

I always felt like Tammy Arnold (from Oregon) was similarly a huge recruit fir Geno bc she was a top 5 player not from the northeast.

Hoopgurlz' position designations are odd. The designate most 1s and 2s as "PG". Then Parrish is just "G". How is that different from the players they call "W"? To me "W" = 2/3, which is where I think Parrish would fit.

I doubt that "G" is meant to convey "combo guard" because all the actual combo guards are called "PG". Maybe it is meant to mean 2s. But then why not call it "SG"?

Naturally, the news articles on her commitment are loudly trumpeting the "#1 Guard" thing even though she's really 8th or whatever once you figure in PGs.

Anyhow, yes, a big get. As a self-proclaimed twitterologist, I am not surprised. Oregon is 100% the hot program right now. It seems like most of ND's top targets (except Marshall) are also keen on Oregon (Watson, Clark, Kelly). And none of them are from anywhere close to Oregon.

We are going to be stuck with Kelly Graves for a long, long time.

Both Oregon and Oregon State are beginning to attract talent from all over the country. Aquino was living in NJ, Taylor Jones is from TX, and Kennedy Brown is from KS.

Does OSU have special dorm beds? :confused:;)
Seriously! Then they have 6'7" Morris in the class ahead. If Rueck can develop these kids the same way he has brought along Gulich and Hamblin, they will be tough. Especially if they can add Clark, Van Lith, and/or Goforth. Pretty remarkable considering a few years ago they were hosting tryouts.

Not even close to top 100 - wow Dukes recruiting has really taken s nosedive.

Just looked at last few years - when/who was last top 50 recruit? Top 20?
guess depending on the service..... I think one of them.... perhaps the AGSR.. the two kids from New Jersey were top 30 or so. @CamrnCrz1974

OSU is also going to spend a bunch of $$$$ to completely overhaul/remodel the women's locker room in 2019! With Oregon 45 minutes down the road, OSU is having to stay up with the Jones (Knights & Graves).

I know she wasn't ranked because she's an Aussie, but Goodchild looks like a great find. She had a very nice freshman year. That lessens the loss of Craig, although they are different types of guards.

A few points:
- ND has been very consistently interested in Nat Marshall for years, with constant checking in at tournaments and many trips (primarily for Niele) to Brookyn and Queens.
- Marshall has also been interested in ND for years, having attended the Recruitapalooz/Nielefest gathering of 2017. She is the fourth person to attend that event that have committed to ND (joining Sam Brunelle, Anaya Peoples and Alli Campbell).
- "Clare" refers to former Christ The King and Boston College star Clare Droesch who died last year from breast cancer at the age of 36. Clare was apparently an assistant at Christ The King High school and a major influence on Nat Marshall. For quite some time, Marshall had a picture of her on her twitter home page.
- ND, under MM and Recruiting Coordinator Ivey, are getting very comfortable flying into and out of LaGuardia Airport. The Irish have and/or will have four players who went to high school on Long Island (including Brooklyn and Queens in NYC): Marshall, Jordan Nixon and Danielle Paterson (both of whom played at The Mary Louis Academy) and Danielle Cosgrove (from Suffolk County further east).

As an Irish fan, excited about having Nat join her fellow metro-NYCer's, work with Irish post coach Carol Owens and add some much needed height and agility.
