    I believe it will be Taylor Bigby Taylor Chavez and another Forward. Just a wild guess🤣🤣🤣

      I can definitely see both Taylor's. I can see this team being a 3 guard team this season. Rayah will probably play 4/5 all season. We definitely need one more big

        Not sure what to think of Bigby. She visited LA last week but unlike her visits to Florida and TX tech, she didn’t post anything about her visit to SC. She’d be a great get and would give us a big, scoring guard that we have desperate needed the last few years.

        However, I think our biggest need is in the post. 6-2 Kadi was listed as a guard coming into college, and may be more of a wing (possibly a stretch 4?); although once a scorer, Koi is a bit of an undersized power forward. Outside of Rayah and Clarice, we are very thin in the paint even if we were to avoid injuries.

        None of our transfers were the big names (e.g. Maryland and Oregon transfers) but CLG is doing a decent job for her first true offseason. Either way, the additions to the roster is certainly something to be excited about. FIGHT ON!

          I don't believe she's visited us yet. Looks like she has visited Texas Tech and Florida and no one else just based on her pages. I know it was stated that she would visit Michigan and us so we'll see how things go.

            I thought I posted on another thread but it was reported by a few folks that she visited the WOT

            Her Socials also showed her visiting Santa Monica so it looks like we got an official visit but in #uncommitted in USC uniform pic 😒

              So looks like as of yesterday she was also visiting hometown UNLV. We'll see what happens

                Bigby was on campus last week. There’s been a pipeline of Centennial Vegas kids transferring back to hometown UNLV. Stay tuned.

                  There seems to be a trend of top kids transferring closer to home (Kyra White did so, and so did a few of the Oregon transfers to name a few) but hoping our own Vegas star continues to help us out:

                      Story on Taylor Bigby signing:

                      Taylor Bigby Transfers To USC Women’s Basketball

                      That makes 5 transfers in, I think there are at least a couple more needed (we have 4 spots left to max the roster at 15)

                        Given the increasing trend of players transferring (with playing time being one of the major factors), I'm not sure filling the roster to the 15 scholarship max is the best idea. Unless CLG recruits role players/academic anchors on the roster or shifts her play style similar to former-ASU'sTurner Thorne, she would only be putting effort into recruiting kids that have a higher probability of transferring out vs staying and developing. Unlike VanDerveer, Gottlieb was not known for filling out her rosters @ Cal and even had very short benches during her tenure.

                        Given the current roster, most positions are filled with both starters and rotation players:
                        G Kayla Williams Bella Perkins
                        G Destiny Littleton Alyson Miura
                        W Kadiatou Sissoko Madison Campbell
                        F Koi Love
                        F Rayah Marshall Clarice Akunwafo
                        Other Aaliyah Gayles India Otto
                        This all could change if we see further transfer movement (either out or additions). Additionally, this assumes that AG3 will still be recovering and redshirting this season and that all players are healthy and ready to play (which usually is *not* the case). The 4/5 may be where we are a bit thin as I could easily see Marshall and Akunwafo both starting depending on the opponent (e.g. Stanford, OSU, Oregon's potential big lineups), or we go small and run. Given her 6-2 height, Sissoko could slip to the 4. This team has a lot of young pieces with lots of upside so I can see our starters playing 25+ mins a game.

                        Thoughts? What positions are in need and who are the impact players in the portal that would fill any gaps?

                          I think we need at least 1 big C/F and a 3pt shooting specialist. Another PG would be nice as well

                            We don’t need 15. Kids will be unhappy and leave. But we do need LG to play more kids. Keeps the bench happy, keeps kids healthy, allows us to run, and wears down opponents. She played too many for too many minutes with too little production last year. I like Marshall’s take.

                              I believe this may be it unless we get another productive big. I believe C. Gottlieb want to get up and down and spread the floor. I see us playing 9 to 10 players this season
