    For the past two years, the five star cut line for ESPNW has been the nation’s No. 53 overall prospect.

    Entering the week, the Oregon Ducks women’s basketball program had
    commitments from four top 50 players in the class of 2020 guard Sydney
    Parrish No. 11 , forward Angela Dugalic No. 22, guard Maddie Scherr No. 23 and point guard Te Hina PaoPao No. 40 .

    On Wednesday, Kelly Graves and his coaching staff added a fifth, as
    Kylee Watson, the nation’s No. 18 overall prospect, announced her
    commitment to Oregon

    The 6 foot 4 forward, out of Mainland Charlie Noebel Jersey High School Linwood, New Jersey , is listed as a five star recruit and the nation’s No. 17 overall player by Prospect Nation.

    As a junior, Watson led Mainland to its first ever New Jersey Group III championship, averaging 18.1 points, 11.0 rebounds and 3.1 blocks per game.

    With Watson’s commitment, Oregon has pledges from four of the nation’s top 23 prospects in the class of 2020.

    No other program has more than one.

    Fresh off a Final Four, Oregon is red hot on the recruiting trail.
