Outstanding player with good size for the front court. Caitlin Clark, PG from Iowa, is also the last recruit that Coach McGraw would like to add to this year's stellar class. Caitlin is down to Iowa, Iowa State, and Notre Dame. Not sure if Campbell and Hayes could be considered combo guards but Caitlin is a pure PG. I believe Hayes is more of a true PG than combo guard. Madeline should have a great career at ND and she and Sam can really help with their great all around play especially scoring. Coach McGraw reloads in a hurry. TREMENDOUS job Coach McGraw.

Terrific job recruiting as usual. The tricky part will be how Muffet handles this year. Even she stated she has never had to deal with loosing all her starting 5 and having single digits in points returning. Hopefully the two transfers in, who were themselves highly rated recruits, can provide some on court leadership to ease the transition.
