Syracuse women's basketball has wrapped up their 2017 recruiting class with a late addition during the early period. That would be Tiana Mangakahia, a junior college point guard out of Hutchinson Community College, according to a source. Dan Olson of ESPNW ranks her as the number one junior college point guard in the cycle.
Mangakahia adds to what was already a loaded class for Quentin Hillsman's program. She gives the Orange seven signees. The others include guards Raven Fox and Nikki Oppenheimer, forwards Maeva Djaldi-Tadbi and Diagna Stroutmane, and post players Amaya Finklea-Guity and Diaby Kariata.
The class has a foreign feel with Mangakahia being an Australian native, while Maeve Djaldi-Tadbi (France), Diagna Stroutmane (Latvia) and Diaby Kariata (France) are all European prospects.
Stroutman and Finklea-Guity are rated a 5-star players by ESPN. Kariata, Djaldi-Tadbi and Oppenheimer are all three-star prospects.
All seven have signed their National Letters of Intent.
Syracuse women's basketball is coming off of its best season program history with a Final Four berth and National Title game appearance. They are 2-0 on the young 2016-17 campaign.
