Making steady progress in the recruiting class for 2023, Adia Barnes and Arizona Women’s Basketball have received another five-star commitment, this time from Jada Williams.
Fresh off of signing one of their best classes for 2022, Adia Barnes and the Arizona Women’s Basketball program are putting together yet another solid class for 2023.
Making news on Monday evening, Arizona has added yet another big-time recruit for 2023, as five-star point guard Jada Williams has committed to the Wildcats.
Despite being a UCLA commit, Jada has flipped her commitment, picking the Wildcats over offers from UCLA, Texas, ASU, Kentucky, and Georgia among several others.
Coming in, Jada is considered to be one of the top players in the country and her presence will help bolster the Wildcats’ backcourt.
Hailing from La Jolla Country Day High School in San Diego, Jada is considered the No. 20 recruit in the country according to ESPN’s scouting services and is the No. 5 ranked point guard.
Joining fellow five-star commits Montaya Dew, the No. 9 overall recruit from Centennial High School (Las Vegas, NV), and Breya Cunningham, the No. 10 overall recruit and La Jolla Country Day High School, and Arizona is quickly putting together one of the best classes in the country.
With the addition of Jada Williams, Adia Barnes and Arizona Women’s Basketball helps solidify its backcourt for the immediate future.
Arizona has been on a roll over the past few seasons as head coach Adia Barnes is steadily and quietly, building a top program in the Pac-12.
And since taking over a once bottom-dwelling program in the conference, Adia has done a tremendous job turning around this program, compiling a 110–74 (49–56) record with two NCAA Tournament appearances, an NCAA Tournament Runner-up finish, and an NIT Championship.
More impressive, is that a majority of this has happened over the past four seasons. And despite her somewhat rocky starts in 2016-17 and 2017-18, the Wildcats are 90–34 (42–27) since then.
As Barnes and the Wildcats build towards the future, they are in a great position to succeed as they now have added Jada to the class.
Coming in, she is one of the top point guards in the country for a reason. At 5-foot-6, she is a bit smaller in stature but possesses a big game. She is crafty and savvy with the basketball, able to see the court and her teammates well, and she has a nice mid-range jumper that extends to the arc.
Here’s a quick look at the Wildcats’ latest addition!
