Marisa Moseley and the her staff are humming along nicely on the recruiting trail for the class of 2022. On Tuesday afternoon, 2022 wing Savannah White (Minneapolis) out of DeLaSalle High School became the third member of Moseley’s first class at UW, joining big Tessa Towers and guard Lily Krahn.
100% COMMITTED ❤️— Savannah White (@Savannah2White) July 13, 2021
I am super blessed to announce my commitment to further my academic and basketball career at the University of Wisconsin!! Thank you to all my family, friends, coaches, and trainers for supporting me!!! #WisconsinWBB #BADGERS pic.twitter.com/HNb8bK2TvK
White attended UW’s advanced camp back back in the middle of June, performed well enough to make the camp’s all-star team, received her offer a couple of days later, returned to Madison on an unofficial visit at the end of June and now, here we are with her announcing her commitment in the middle of July. That all took ::double checks calendar:: just under a month!
White plays her AAU ball for FBC The North, an Under Armour program, where current UW freshman Sacia Vanderpool also played. On their website, she is listed as a 6-foot-2 wing who can play any position one through three. There is also a little scouting report as well:
Point guard handles and with a High I.Q.
pushes the fast break with speed and control and has great sight lines and anticipatory court vision
length and quickness makes her difficult to defend on the with smaller guards
We have reached out to FBC The North’s head coach in hopes of getting a little more insight into White’s game and we’ll update this post is we hear back.
While playing for DeLaSalle, who lost in the quarterfinals of the Minnesota State Tournament last season, White really filled up the box score. For her junior season, in which she played 10 games, she scored 10.7 points per game (32%/19%/62%), grabbed 7.9 rebounds per game (2.7 on the offensive end), dished out 4.0 assists per game and had 6.2 stocks (steals + blocks) per game. With a stat line like that she reminds me of a better rebounding Matisse Thybulle!
I wish there was some tape for me to look over, but the only thing listed on White’s Hudl page is a seven second clip of before the tip-off in DeLaSalle’s game against Cretin-Derham Hall and, well, it didn’t show a whole lot of her skills.
