Rankings: ESPNHoopGurlz: 5-star prospect, #46 overall nationally, 6th-best forward in the country. ProspectsNation: 5- star prospect, #14 overall nationally, 4th-best forward prospect nationally.
School: Rock Island (Illinois)
Accolades: Two-time Ms. Basketball award winner in Illinois (2017, 2018); three-time 3A/4A all-state selection. Averaged 21.9 points and 10.2 rebounds as a junior and led her team to a spot in the state semifinals. Took part in the USA Basketball U18 National Team Trials in May.
Staley's Take: "Brea is the ultimate competitor. She will impact the game in a variety of ways. She can stretch the floor with her 3-point shot, attack the basket with her size and strength and has a midrange game to complement them. Her parents and her hometown have shaped her character, allowing her to be a great builder of our culture. Gamecock Nation will love her size at the wing and her no quit mentality."
Rankings: ESPNHoopGurlz: 5-star prospect, #10 overall nationally, 2nd-best forward in the country.
School: Kings Way Christian (Canada)
Accolades: Became the first Canadian woman to dunk in a game at age 15. She has been on the U17 Canadian National Team and helped Canada to a bronze medal in the 2017 FIBA U19 World Cup, during which she averaged 11.7 points and 7.4 rebounds. Amihere was ranked as high as No. 2 in the 2019 class prior to an injury ending her 2017-18 season.
Staley's Take: "We are thankful to have the opportunity to coach Laeticia Amihere. She brings an incredible skill set and, more importantly, an intense passion for the game and competitive spirit. In the image of her mother, Laeticia is wise beyond her years and will have an immediate presence in our locker room. She is being groomed as an important piece to the Canadian National Team, and our FAMS are going to be happy that she is a Gamecock."
