Commitments of the 2020 class are still coming in with the late signing period opening up tomorrow, April 15th and concluding August 1st. The latest player to announce her college decision from the state of Florida is Caleigh Rose-WestCaleighRose-West6'0" | SFMontverde Academy | 2020StateFL. The 6’0 small forward made her announcement via social media, stating “after a lot of praying and thought I’ve decided that I will be committing to the University of New Orleans.” Rose-West is a sturdy left handed forward that has some inside-out versatility and operates well from the corner, short corner and high post areas as a slasher.
After helping Montverde to an 18-6 record playing a difficult schedule, Montverde’s latest commitment makes it three seniors that are headed to the Division 1 level including 6’3 C Kseniia KozlovaKseniiaKozlova6'3" | CMontverde | 2020StateFL (Middle Tennessee State) and 6’3 C Kayla MorrisKaylaMorris6'3" | CMontverde | 2020StateFL (East Carolina). Montverde played the entire season without Kozlova due to a knee injury and Morris sat out for over half of the season after having shoulder surgery. Both players project as quality college players down the line, despite an injury ridden senior season for the Lady Eagles.
The 2020-2021 Montverde team is already on pace to send even more players in the 2021 class to the D1 level with a strong junior core returning and some more impressive prospects to be added. Core returners include D1 prospects 6’1 SG Maria Myklebust, 6’2 PF Mariana ValenzuelaMarianaValenzuela6'2" | PFMontverde | 2021StateFL and 6’0 SG/SF Niveya HenleyNiveyaHenley6'0" | SFMontverde | 2021StateFL (Butler).
