In case you missed it, our top overall prospect in Arizona's girls basketball for the 2017 Class in the state, Valley Vista High School's 6-foot-2 senior post Kiara Edwards, has signed a division-I scholarship with San Diego State University.
Edwards is an elite-level prospect in the state of Arizona, regardless of class. As a result, Edwards played for the Arizona Magic girls program, and finished her club career for the final two seasons with the West Coast Premier (CA), a Nike EYBL team and one of the most successful club programs in the country.
Edwards has had an excellent career at Valley Vista High School. As a mere freshman and as a varsity starter, Edwards averaged nice numbers - 12 points and 10 rebounds per/game. She has steadily progressed as a player and as a student-athlete throughout her high school career, and this season as a senior, she is averaging 13.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per/game.
While Edwards and her loaded Valley Vista (8-4) group have lost a couple games in Arizona this high school season, two of their losses came at the hands of top-rated out-of-state competition. Look for Edwards to team up with star guard teammates, senior guard Lauren Satterwhite and junior guard Taylor Chavez to win it all this high school season for the 6A Division in Arizona.
Congratulations to Kiara from our staff here at Arizona Preps on her amazing commitment!
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Edwards is a very nice looking post prospect with excellent physical size and loads of potential for the future. She is a glaring talent with good overall fundamentals and a strong presence on the court. An excellent rebounder, especially on the offensive end where she takes up space inside the paint and is able to get nice put-backs for her team. She also runs the floor very well for her size and is a very good finisher. Gets very good low post position and has an excellent drop step inside the paint. Has very good footwork. A good mid-range shooter with a soft touch. Has a breat personality and smile. A big-time get for San Diego State. Has a bright future ahead of her.
