An Exclusive Look at the Best Female Youth Basketball Players in the Nation from the Class of 2018

PRESS RELASE: Montclair, NJ (10/16/2013)- Youth1 Media, providers of the number one youth sports media website,, has just announced the release of its newest scouting report, the Girls Hoop Prospects Report, the latest addition to its growing portfolio of ranked prospects that celebrate the best youth athletes in major sports across the country.

Girls Hoop Prospects identifies the top 50+ national female basketball players in the Class of 2018. Part 1 of the report premieres this week featuring 15 of the most high profile players like Katlyn Gilbert, a 5’10” guard from Indianapolis, IN, who as a 7th grader committed to the University of Evansville. This list also highlights Sydney Hardeman, a 5’10” guard from Allen, TX, who was Youth1’s Female Athlete of the Month for September, based on her outstanding athleticism and versatility.  

Girls Hoop Prospects Parts 2 & 3 will follow, highlighting the 8th grade players that may have more anonymity, but just as much amazing skill and talent to catch the eye of Youth1’s Zachary O’Connor-Robol. “These ladies are all so impressive, not only for their outstanding athleticism, but also for their dedication to the sport. I am pleased to offer a closer look at some of the most promising hoop prospects to watch in their final year before high school,” he adds.

This report debuts as a special part of the company’s Year of the Girl Campaign, to provide more focused attention to female athletes and sports. It follows upon the heels of the success of a similar report, Hoop Prospects Report, dedicated to the nation’s best male athletes.

Laura Petrillo, Youth1 President, adds, “We are so proud to debut this report in this our Year of the Girl, on the very night that the Women’s Sports Foundation will honor the top female athletes in sports at the 34th Annual Salute to Women in Sports. We have received an outstanding response from giving exposure to top female athletes in other sports such as softball, track and field and hockey. It’s time to give the lady basketball players some well-deserved attention for their excellence on the court!”

The Girls Hoop Prospects Report springboards off the company’s other popular recruiting reports Elite 101 (football) and Puck Prospects (hockey), which identify and analyze the strengths and skill sets of the best athletes in the country in their respective sport.
