On3 created its first-ever women’s basketball high school recruiting rankings, featuring the top 25 prospects from the class of 2025. The rankings are created from a series of combined factors including in-person evaluation, data gathered and film evaluation. 

AAU season is upon us, so these rankings will be continually updated as new evaluations are formed throughout the July live period. AAU and international play will factor into the next update.

Full On3 Top 25 Women’s Basketball Recruiting Rankings

Aaliyah Chavez tops the list

Lubbock (Texas) Monterey point guard Aaliyah Chavez comes in at No. 1 on the inaugural ranking and continues to dominate on the Nike EYBL circuit this offseason, leading all players with 23.4 points and averaging 4.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists on 51% shooting from the field and 48% from deep. 

She was also named the Texas girls’ basketball Gatorade Player of the Year in March, along with earning All-America and all-state honors. The 5-foot-9 point guard recently took an unofficial visit to LSU and has stood out as the top prospect in the 2025 class. 

Meet the other 5-star recruits

Four recruits received a five-star rating from On3, including Chavez, Jazzy Davidson, UCLA commit Sienna Betts and ZaKiyah Johnson

Davidson, a 6-foot-1 wing from Happy Valley (Oregon) Clackamas High School has been offered by nearly all of the top programs in the country. She was named the 2023-24 Gatorade Player of the Year in Oregon for the third consecutive year. 

Davidson told On3 she has recently narrowed her list to eight schools and is now considering USC, UCLA, Duke, South Carolina, TCU, Tennessee, UConn and Texas

She plays for the Cal Stars on the Nike EYBL circuit, where she averaged 15.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists over five games in April. Davidson was also one of 12 players who competed on the USA Basketball U18 FIBA National Team this summer and led the team to its 11th consecutive gold medal along with Betts. 

Betts was named the Gatorade Player of the Year for Colorado and committed to UCLA in November, shortly after her older sister, Lauren Betts, transferred to the Bruins. The 6-4 forward averaged 22.5 points, 15.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 3.3 blocks and 2.2 steals this past high school season. 

Johnson played alongside Davidson and Betts this June in the FIBA U18 AmeriCup, returning home with a gold medal after averaging eight points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists. The 6-foot guard/forward narrowed her list to 12 before her junior season, including UConn, LSU, Notre Dame, South Carolina, and more. 

Early Commits

Nine of the top 25 recruits have committed to landing spots for their college career. Betts is the highest-ranked recruit to do so, but hometown star No. 9 Dee Alexander committed to Cincinnati this spring. 

Stanford landed No. 10 Hailee Swain, who committed after her freshman campaign. The 5-foot-10 point guard describes her game as versatile and notes that she excels most in transition, can shoot efficiently from mid-range but wants to continue to improve from beyond the arc. 

No. 14-ranked Addie Deal committed to Iowa and became the highest-ranked Iowa commit since Caitlin Clark. Her junior season was cut short after she suffered a grade-three sprained ankle in December. 

No. 15-ranked Leah Macy recently committed to Notre Dame. The 6-foot-3 post player averaged 24.9 points and 13.9 rebounds per game as a junior at Bardstown (Kentucky) Bethlehem High School. She chose Notre Dame over Kentucky, Louisville and UConn. 

No. 16-ranked forward Brynn McGaughy recently committed to Washington and No. 17 guard Keziah Lofton committed to Oklahoma early two years ago, following her freshman campaign.

No. 21-ranked 5-foot-9 guard Kelis Fisher committed to UConn and committed during her sophomore year – one of few Huskies to do so. No. 24-ranked guard Bella Hines rounds out the list after committing to Kim Mulkey and LSU in April.
