Raegan Beers, nation’s No. 4 post, commits to Oregon State Beavers women’s basketball

The Oregon State Beavers women’s basketball program has established a tradition of landing some of the nation’s best talent on the recruiting trail.

In the class of 2020, Scott Rueck and his coaching staff secured commitments from Arkansas five-star guard/wing Sasha Goforth, while 2021 provided Greta Kampschroeder, the nation’s No. 14 guard, and Talia Von Oelhoffen, the No. 5 wing nationally.

On Monday, Oregon State extended its hot streak into the 2022 class, landing Colorado star Raegan Beers, the nation’s No. 22 overall prospect and No. 4 post player according to ESPN:

Beers, who visited Corvallis in January, is currently considered a four-star prospect, but ESPN bestows five-star status on its top 53 players by Signing Day each recruiting cycle, meaning she is almost certain to earn a fifth star before she arrives on campus.

As a sophomore, the 6-foot-2 post averaged 15.5 points, 10.1 rebounds (4.5 offensive rebounds), 1.6

Syracuse Women’s Lacrosse Commits Attacker Ryann Banks

Syracuse Women’s Lacrosse picked up another attacker in Ryann Banks. Banks goes to McIntosh High School and plays for Big 4 HHH. 

When asked “Why Syracuse?” Banks brings a very unique perspective with her answer.

“Well one of the questions my family goes through in the recruiting process is ‘If I blew out my knee freshman year, which school would I feel the most comfortable at?,” Banks said. 

In essence, Banks is thinking outside of lacrosse, which school she would truly want to live out her collegiate years at the most, a smart and mature way of thinking from someone her age. 

“Syracuse was my option for that just because the atmosphere was so great…we grew up there and it just feels like home to me when I’m there,” Banks said. 

Banks said that she was drawn to play for Syracuse because of the team and the coaches.

Chloe Jones is the second player that the Syracuse Women’s Lacrosse team picked up in the class of 2022 from Ursuline Academy in Delaware. She joins righty midfielder Superia Clark, who just so happens to be her best friend. 

Jones says that her and Clark would fantasize about playing lacrosse together at Syracuse as early as middle school.

“We were looking at colleges in eighth grade and we were like, ‘oh my gosh, we would love to go to Syracuse, it would be a dream’,” Jones said. “So it’s kind of crazy that our dreams are coming true right now.” 

Jones wants to go on the pre med track, and Syracuse’s programs fit the bill.

“It [Syracuse] is known for it’s premed so I really like that,” Jones said. 

Jones was also drawn specifically to Syracuse’s lacrosse program because of the energy they bring to the field.
