The recruiting class consists of Brittany Pilkington (Cape Henry Collegiate School/Virginia Beach, Va), Erdenesuren Erdenebat (Yorktown H.S./Fairfax, Va) and Maya Hick (Cranbrook H.S./West Orchard Lake, MI).

"I am very excited about the addition of Brittany, Esu and Maya for next year," said Curtis. "All of them have proven they can play at a very high level. I expect all of them to make immediate and major contributions to our starting line-up."
