PURDUE WOMENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Recruiting Update: Three new 2008s

    Three names added to Class of 2008 watch list

    We've added three names to the 2008 watch list garnering early interest from Purdue.

    One of the class's top priorities is guard, and Attica (IN) guard Brittany Rayburn is a player already on the radar of programs outside the state of Indiana. Rayburn averaged 17 points, 8.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 3.4 steals as a freshman. She has unofficially visited the Purdue campus.

    Another guard of local interest is Lebanon's (IN) Maggie Boyer, a 5'11 teammate of Rayburn during the summer with the Indiana's Finest AAU program. Their 14-under team won the national championship this past summer. Boyer averaged 14 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.8 steals as a freshman. Lebanon ran to a 21-1 record last season before being beaten in sectionals by Brebeuf. Boyer has unofficially visited Purdue, as well as Tennessee.

    Being 6'2 and athletic tends to bring you attention, as it is with sophomore Alex Guyton of Bloomington North (IN). Guyton was also a member of the Indiana's Finest team with Rayburn and Boyer this past summer that won the 14-under national championship.

    Notable names

    A recent preview of Indianapolis area guards had a couple interesting names included. Maggie Boyer was of course named as a guard to watch. Also, sophomore Briana Bass, Amber Harris's teammate from North Central, is said to be considering committing early and is getting interest from Duke, Louisiana State and Tennessee. And senior Tatiana Valek, former Purdue point guard Erika Valek's sister, is listed as a guard to watch after averaging 15.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.9 steals last season.

    Big Ten Recruiting

    Northwestern has received their first verbal from the class of 2007. Meshia Reed, a 5'9 guard of Hillcrest High (IL), chose Northwestern over interest in Vanderbilt, Wisconsin and St. Louis. Reed averaged 13.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 3.9 steals per game as a sophomore. She is a two-time All-SICA Central selection, and has helped Hillcrest continue its streak of ten consecutive conference titles. Reed is rated at No. 196 by All Star Girls Report.
