Yeah. Of course she is the Strother and KLS archetype but a bit different in that shevseems to have a bit more to her game. It's like she has some Sveta mixed in.

beautiful fall away jumper- in the corner - off the dribble! Unstoppable!
anybody hearing ANYTHING about her recruiting? I’m sure everybody has offered but only crickets from her camp.
Barker is going to be a beast no doubt about that! She pretty much dominated U16 trials. That step back fall away jumper is pretty much money. At the end of this video she was hitting that jumper over 6'7" Lauren Betts. :D Her and Brady @ UCONN are going to be big problems for the rest of WCBB.

Her ability to drive and take body contact reminded me of a taller version of Collier.

You say that as if she has already committed to UConn. Has UConn offered and if so what do you think of their chances of getting her commitment? I have not heard much about her recruitment.

nobody knows who has offered because she is totally silent. My bet is EVERYBODY has offered including Geno and Dawn. From my review of tapes (I’m no expert) she looks like the most dominant prospect of 2022.

not discounting Miami, Florida, FSU possibilities but I would think she would be considering the “contender class” of programs. Heck, UCLA and unc might be in the race.

Stop teasing me. Just stop it! I can't even picture that. Well, maybe I can.

look at the difference in the footwork between Paige and Azzi. Azzi has a one step bounce to shoot and paige has a more typical two separate steps. Azzi gets her shot of quicker. I saw a post recently that Azzi and her dad were woking on converting her footwork to mimic Steph's. I can really see what they mean in this video.
The big difference I see is that Paige brings the ball lower before starting her shooting motion than does Azzi. This, too, can account for why it takes her longer to get her shot off.

She's a HS junior, female version of MJ. Ridiculous talent.

Respecting your opinion, but I would like to see her go up against Betts. That video looked like USA trials and I would think Betts was there. Would have been interesting to see her try some of those moves on the very long Miss Betts. Best option would be for her and Lauren to both come to UConn ;)

She did put those moves on Betts. It is literally the last shot in the video. She dominated the trials.

I too want to see her go up against Betts...during UConn practices. No doubt this kid is nice. She has a frame and athleticism made for basketball. UConn basketball.

Edwards is very similar to Barker and just might be equal or better. With all the talent that Geno has right now, who has swiss army knife versatility he is in 7th heaven and will more than likely only take a couple of players in 2022. Unless those players are the best players in the class. Everything's seemingly coming up roses for "the big guy.":cool:

Highlights from 11/14:


First time I've seen video on Barker, I like her. She can run the fast break and she goes to the basket with the ball held high in one hand like Maya use to. I never saw Maya get that shot blocked. Barker is the kind of player that can put you in "early" foul trouble with those drives to the basket.

I can see why some here are high on Barker. She's nice. A 6'2" F junior ranked #2 (position rank #1) in the class of 2022. She'll have her choice of schools also. :cool: I'd like to see her in person.
