The 2020-21 season, or rather Season B, is officially underway and teams will begin playing games next week.

When they do, the recruitment of Colorado’s players will continue. While the modified campaign will be a short one, it will also be an important one for recruits in the 2022 class.

So far to this point, the top two players in Colorado’s 2022 Class Rankings – Lauren Betts Lauren Betts 6'7" | C Grandview | 2022 State #1 Nation CO and Raegan Beers Raegan Beers 6'3" | PF Valor Christian | 2022 State #35 Nation CO – have committed prior to the upcoming high school season.

Betts, a 6-foot-7 forward who is widely regarded as the nation’s top 2022 recruit, will be heading to Stanford University next season. The talented Grandview post is also the latest in a developing pipeline of top Colorado players to join the Cardinal that includes Jana Van Gytenbeek Jana Van Gytenbeek 5'7" | PG Cherry Creek | 2020 CO (Cherry Creek, 2020), Francesca Belibi (Regis Jesuit, 2019) and Ashten Prechtel (Discovery Canyon, 2019).

Betts averaged 17.8 points, 11.2 rebounds and 3.9 blocks as a sophomore, while leading the Wolves to last season’s Class 5A state championship game before it was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. She was also considering other top programs like Baylor, Louisville, Oregon, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Connecticut.

Beers, a 6-foot-3 post who is also widely regarded nationally as one of the top players in her graduating class, has committed to Oregon State. As a sophomore at Valor Christian last winter, Beers averaged 15.5 points, 10.1 rebounds and 2.1 blocks a night.

Some players will likely commit soon and other players like Grandview’s Marya Hudgins Marya Hudgins 6'0" | SF Grandview | 2022 State CO , the No. 3-ranked player in the class, aren’t in any real hurry just yet.
