ESPN Player Evaluations

USJN DC-July 10: Not as dramatic a performance as she provided at Penn State but still an explosive eye catcher. Utilized a spin move time and again down low to create her looks inside and that extended first step got her past defenders on a regular basis. She'll still need to expand and sharpen her skill to completely take advantage of her potential but the possibilities are impressive and limitless. (Lewis)

Blue Chip-July 10: When a player is as eye catching as this 6-foot forward from Baltimore, Md., and you're still tempted to say she's just scratching the surface, great things are on the horizon. Ade is impressive both physically and in her playing performance. She utilizes her size, strength and explosiveness to make plays that might have a rough edge to them now but will suit her well at the next level. Her first step covers a lot of ground and created a lot of opportunities for her off the drive. Inside she got off the floor both on her shot as well as her rebounding efforts. The key words in describing her game are effort and attack. On either end of the floor she's relentless and refuses to be outworked. There are fundamental skills that need refinement but the potential is limitless and should keep the folks at James Madison smiling. (Lewis)

Deep South-April 10: Tremendous athlete with great leaping ability. She is showing a variety of offensive moves away from the basket, she has good body control and is difficult to guard. She is aggressive on defense blocking and altering numerous shots.

She Got Game Classic-Dec. 09: Extremely athletic player, does a great job rebounding the ball especially in traffic.

Blue Chip-July 09: Extremely athletic, solid rebounder, finishes well around the basket. Will need to improve ball handling and perimeter shooting to play the wing.
