Indya Nivar has committed to n.c. state, while Robert Dillingham is headed to Stanford. The two programs are in direct competition for top five recruits. The question is which one will sign the highest offer. Below are some details about the commitment process for the top five women’s basketball prospects. Indya Nivar has already visited both schools and has a strong opinion on her college choice.
Indya Nivar commits to n.c. state
Indya Nivar is a five-star point guard from Apex, NC. She was ranked the 20th best player in the Class of 2022 by ESPN. She committed to the Wolfpack on Wednesday, a day before the N.C. State volleyball team announced its commitment to the alumna. Nivar also chose Stanford over Duke, which makes her commitment to the Wolfpack even more impressive.
Indya Nivar, a local product from Cary, NC, has drawn interest from a number of colleges. She has played with the Carolina Flames AAU team, competed on the Nike EYBL circuit and averaged 24 points per game in a high school season. She has already received interest from NC State, Stanford, and North Carolina. But before making a decision, Nivar has to play in the NCAA tournament to be eligible for a full-ride scholarship.
A 17-and-under AAU basketball player, Nivar plans to attend medical school and become an orthopedic surgeon after college. With a strong academic record, Nivar picked up 15 scholarship offers and whittled her list down to three schools in early September. It took Nivar just two visits to decide on her final destination. Nivar’s choice is now down to just three schools.
Although Nivar hasn’t played varsity basketball yet, she has already received glowing praise from her coaching colleagues. When Campbell first met Nivar at a summer workout, he remained skeptical. But after the first workout with her, his initial skepticism was erased. Now, Campbell calls the rising sophomore the best player he’s ever seen. At her high school, Nivar averaged 23.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 4.4 steals per game. She was a first-team all-state choice by the North Carolina Basketball Coaches Association.
The Wolfpack have been in touch with a number of prospects in the 2022 recruiting class. The varsity fencing team is also in contact with the Wolfpack. The incoming recruiting class of the Wolfpack has not been announced yet, but the school’s 2022-23 Power 36 will be announced later this month. The official induction ceremony will take place in June 2022 in Knoxville. Its recruiting success is largely due to the work of Wes Moore and his staff.
Robert Dillingham commits to n.c. state
NC State has verbally committed 5-star point guard Robert Dillingham. The Charlotte, NC native, who is one of the top players in the 2023 class, had previously been committed to Memphis, Kentucky, LSU and Kansas. He had previously taken official visits to Kentucky and LSU, and ranked Kentucky as his favorite, but chose NC State instead. While he still holds offers from those schools, he is excited to be a part of the Wolfpack’s basketball program.
During the off-season, NC State had a largely successful recruiting campaign, landing the No. 1 overall recruit. Dillingham had been favored by Memphis, LSU, and Kentucky since early October. He had also visited Kentucky in the fall. He was expected to make an announcement soon, but didn’t get a chance until December. At the time of the announcement, he had five Crystal Ball picks for Kentucky and four FutureCast predictions for the Wildcats.
Despite his impressive performance in high school, Dillingham is likely to sign with the Wolfpack. The point guard has long been a mainstay of the Lincolnton Combine High School program, but he’s currently playing for the Simi Valley Donda Academy in California. Though he’s not a native of North Carolina, Dillingham’s ties to the state run deep, and he’ll likely be playing for the Wolfpack in Raleigh during the 2023-24 season.
Dillingham’s commitment is a big deal. He averaged 20 points, 4.4 rebounds and four assists a game last season at Lincolnton Combine Academy. He then transferred to Donda Academy in California. This season, his team was 2-0 in the Donda Academy. While this was a huge development for Dillingham, speculation began about whether he might be able to join the class of 2022. However, sources this week told reporters that Dillingham might have to wait until August to decide on his future.
Although this is a major addition to the Wolfpack, Dillingham is far from an instant star. His skill set and versatility make him a versatile player who can play multiple positions. NC State’s backcourt is already interchangeable with its current members, as Hayes and Dillingham can play the point guard and the lead guard, and Terquavion Smith, Breon Pass, and LJ Thomas can play any position in the backcourt.
Dillingham’s commitment is a major win for the Wolfpack as the Wolfpack are now in prime position to pursue the top 2023 point guard in the class. While Dillingham’s commitment is not a guarantee for a 2023 scholarship, it is the second-highest commitment for the Wolfpack since Dennis Smith Jr. committed to the program in 2016.
Indya Nivar commits to stanford
Indya Nivar has committed to Stanford as an apex five star womens basketball prospect. She is a five-star recruit who was ranked No. 20 in the nation when she was recruited. Nivar is a member of a successful high school team and will be a key piece to Stanford’s recruiting plan. She has an exceptional shooting stroke and is capable of scoring in multiple ways. Her court vision is excellent and she knows how to involve her teammates. Nivar is also active on the perimeter and should provide a solid presence on the defensive end for the Cardinal.
After a tough decision between Stanford and North Carolina, Nivar’s high school team reaped the rewards. She was chosen by Stanford over NC State, N.C. State, and N.C. State. Stanford’s commitment to Nivar will make her the top-ranked guard in the 2022 class. However, there is no guarantee that she will get to play for Stanford.
While Nivar has the best shooting skills in the class, her defenders may not like her defensive style. She has an elite pull-up jumper, is capable of facilitating the offense, and is a physical defender. Stanford is a very good fit for this apex five-star womens basketball recruit. If she can improve her shooting, it will be a major plus for the Cardinal.
After choosing Stanford over NC State, Indya Nivar will attend Stanford in the 2022-2023 recruiting class. She is a five star recruit and was rated No. 15 nationally. She will join the Wolfpack in June 2022 and will be inducted on June 11, according to Andy Katz’s latest Power 36 rankings. The official induction ceremony will take place in Knoxville.
The recruiting weight of Indya Nivar is increasing with her commitment to Stanford. She is an athletic and explosive player who has received offers from the Wolfpack, Mississippi, West Virginia, and West Virginia. ESPN and Rivals consider her a four-star prospect. Her commitment to Stanford is another positive sign for Stanford’s basketball program. If Indya commits to Stanford, that means her recruitment carries more weight at the college level.
Hidalgo is among the most competitive players in her class, despite having been snubbed by the USA U16 national team. She showed off a variety of floaters and runner finishes. She can also explode to the rim after breaking down defenses. Her handles are excellent and she has a good shooting range for 3-pointers.
