The state of Michigan has been active in recruiting, with many college coaches making offers and receiving commitments. Here is an update on June's Recruiting News & Notes.

One of the top shooters in the class of 2025, Guard Olivia Flynn of Harbor Springs HS (MI), verbally committed to Western Michigan. Flynn, who plays travel ball with the Michigan Mystics, held several offers before finally deciding to be a Bronco. 

Ultra-quick and talented 2026 point guard Mariah Cross from Wayne Memorial High School had a fantastic June playing for the Zebras. She received offers from Detroit Mercy, Iona, and Temple. College coaches will have the chance to see her in July with her 1 Nation travel squad.

Se'Crette Carter, a top 5 player in the class of 2026 according to the LBI/Wilkins Report and a high-level shooter from Belleville HS, had an outstanding spring travel season with Michigan Crossover EYBL. She put up some impressive numbers that carried over into the June high school session. Carter, who already had offers from Nebraska-Omaha, Western Michigan, and Detroit Mercy, recently received an offer from Marquette.

Eastern Michigan's new head coach, Sahar Nusseibeh, is prioritizing the state of Michigan in recruiting. They have offered a scholarship to Collenna Bryant, the top point guard in the class of 2025 from Wayne Memorial High School. Additionally, they have extended offers to three 2026 prospects: CeCe Bonner from Muskegon, Mariah Sain from Muskegon, and Jayla Jackson from Detroit Country Day.

Rockford's point guard Anna Wypch, class of 2025, has received several offers and recently visited the University of Toledo unofficially. She has now picked up an offer from Northwestern. Wypch, who is expected to be a candidate for the 2025 Miss Basketball title, will have a nice list of schools to choose from for her college destination.

Paisley Stephens, from Belleville High School, is a talented and versatile player who is considered one of the top players in Michigan's class of 2028. After a successful spring season playing with Michigan Crossover EYBL, she received her first offer from Detroit Mercy.
