With every Rankings update, our staff likes to highlight players that have made significant jumps in each class. Here are several from the Class of 2021 that have seen their ranking rise in the newest update:

  1. Taris ThorntonTarisThornton6'0" | SFWillowbrook | 2021StateIL, 6’0” Forward, Willowbrook

Rising five spots in the recent Rankings update, Thornton is a strong and athletic player who can play in the post or out on the perimeter with her skillset. The Eastern Illinois commit has good quickness and speed with the ball, making it difficult for opposing guards to stay in front of her. Taris uses her length to finish well around the rim on offense and is able to defend both Guards and Post Players with confidence.

  1. Molly SheehanMollySheehan5'8" | PGBenet Academy | 2021StateIL, 5’8” Guard, Benet Academy

Jumping up 15 spots in the Rankings, Sheehan had a great Summer showing that she can play Point Guard at a high level. The Valpo commit has a great understanding of the game and a pass-first mentality, which she executes in a number of creative ways. Additionally, Molly shoots the three at a high rate and consistently plays solid on-ball defense against opposing PG’s.
