Destiny Slocum, who led the Mavericks to a 5A state championship last season, highlighted the opening of the NCAA’s early signing period in the Treasure Valley, inking her letter of intent Wednesday as part of the No. 1 women’s college basketball recruiting class in the nation, according to ESPNW.

“Our fans are going to love the flare and energy that Destiny plays with,” Maryland coach Brenda Frese said of the No. 7-ranked prospect in the nation in a statement. “She is a true elite point guard, which is the single hardest player to land in our sport. She is going to be a joy to watch for the next four years.”

Slocum begins her senior season at Mountain View on Nov. 19.
