Marshall, a 5-foot-9-inch guard from nearby Miami Country Day School, is among the 19 candidates from Florida. Ripley, a 6-foot wing/forward out of the New Hampton School, is one of just two nominees from New Hampshire.
Three of Miami’s signees, Gray, Marshall and Mason, are four-star, top-90 prospects according to both espnW HoopGurlz and ProspectsNation.com. All five pledges are four-star, top-125 recruits on at least one of the two outlets.
The Hurricanes’ class is ranked No. 16 by espnW HoopGurlz and No. 17 by ProspectsNation.com, which does not yet factor Marshall into its rankings after she committed during signing week.
