Tudor, a 5-foot-10 shooting guard is entering her junior season for St. Mary’s High School in Stockton, California and averaged 13.3 points per game last season. Her Rivals profile shows that she holds offers from Iowa State, Washington, Arizona State and Oregon State. ESPN has Tudor rated as a 3-star prospect and 18th shooting guard in the country.
Chris Hansen from Prospects Nation, a leader in women’s basketball recruiting, has Tudor as an ELITE 60 sharp shooting prospect. It should be no wonder why there is mutual interest among parties here as Iowa State’s head coach Bill Fennelly has always made the three a major part of his offense. Which includes leading the Big 12 in 3-point field goals made in 2013-14 (276) by averaging 8.90 makes a game.
At the Nike Girls EYBL AAU tournament in Augusta last month, Mark Lewis of Blue Star Media wrote that Tudor is “active both with and without the ball in her hands. She’s got a good understanding of spacing and is one of those rare players on the high school level who grasps the value of aggressive cutting. Her reads and shot selection are strong and the release is quick.”
Clay Kallam from Sports Stars cover the Elite Prospect Games this summer and said that Tudor is a “pure shooter who, though is right handed, is very good going to her left. Her strength, however, is way-back-there range.”
