LSU misses the cut for top women’s basketball prospect in 2024 class

LSU has been a routine contender for elite talent since coach Kim Mulkey arrived in Baton Rouge two years ago, but it has missed the cut for the top women’s basketball prospect in the 2024 cycle.

ESPN reported Thursday that Sarah Strong, a forward from Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, is down to three schools.

LSU was not among them. The No. 1 player in the nation per the ESPNW Top 100 is down to Duke, North Carolina and UConn.

The top three make a decent deal of geographic sense for the North Carolina native, and Mulkey’s squad will miss out on adding another elite player.

LSU has one commitment in the 2024 cycle from a top 100 prospect: Louisiana native Jada Richard.
