Mississippi State women's basketball coach Vic Schaefer said his program was able to recruit a hard-working group because of a hard-working group.
After the recruiting process finished with the Bulldogs adding five more players on Wednesday, Schaefer said he could not have put together such a class without the help of his coaching staff.
“First of all, this class is the culmination of a lot of hard work and many, many hours put in by my staff," Schaefer said. "It’s (assistant coach) Aqua Franklin’s first as recruiting coordinator, and her, (associate head coach) Johnnie Harris and (assistant coach) Brittany Hudson are to be commended.
“This class has a five-star, a four-star and three three-star recruits in it. It’s an impact class. All five players will impact this program for the next four years. They are all difference players, but they are also difference people, young ladies who will impact this campus and this community for years to come in a positive way."
MSU was able to sign Scott Central's Victoria Vivians and Florida's Lakaris Salter, two of the top players in the country, while also getting daughter and local Dandy Dozen selection Blair Schaefer out of Starkville High School. The Bulldogs also inked Texas All-Star guard Kayla Nevitt and Alabama guard Morgan William.
