Baylor Lady Bears Land Two Elite Recruits

Sic ‘Em!

NCAA Womens Basketball: Baylor at Connecticut David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The Lady Bears have landed two of the country’s top recruits. For a program with two national championships, they’ve landed two great pieces to add another title.

First, the Lady Bears grabbed Aquira DeCosta. She’s a 6-foot-2 wing from California. Dan Olson of ESPN has a great profile of her, including a look at one dominant performance:

DeCosta boasts the kind of game that holds up well on the world stage. This past summer she won a gold medal with USA Basketball and was named MVP of the FIBA 3x3 under-18 World Cup in China. Before that, she had won two bronze medals with USA Basketball, on the 2015 U16 national team and the 2016 U17 World Cup team.

Second, Baylor secured the commitment of Honesty Scott-Grayson. She’s a point guard and ranked No. 18 on ESPN’s recruiting services. Scott-Grayson has also played on FIBA American teams.

The Lady Bears now have four commitments in the 2018 class. All rank in the top 100 nationally. The future of Lady Bears basketball is bright.
