Vic Schaefer signed the No. 6 recruiting class in the country for the Texas Longhorns, as all three signees are considered Top 100 national players.
Schaefer continues to re-stock the roster for the future after taking in an exceptional class for the 2021 recruiting cycle. This class, signed as the early period began on Wednesday, is No. 6 in the nation in Dan Olson’s Collegiate Girls Basketball Report and was rated as the No. 8 class in Bret McCormick’s All-Star Girls Report. All three players are in the Top 100 in ESPN.com’s recruiting rankings.
Ndjakalenga Mwenentanda is the top-ranked prospect. The 6-foot-2 guard from Washington High School in Sioux Falls, South Dakota is the nation’s No. 34 prospect according to ESPN W/HoopGurlz rankings. She averaged 14.8 points, seven rebounds and 2.4 assists per game in leading her school to a Class AA State Championship.
Amina Muhammad is a 6-foot-4 forward from DeSoto, Texas, who is ranked No. 64 by ESPN. She was named to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches all-region team last season and led DeSoto to a Class 6A State Championship.
Jordana Codio is a 6-foot-1 guard who will play for Montverde Academy in Winter Garden, Florida. This academy is the same one where former Oklahoma State guard Cade Cunningham played his last year of prep basketball. As the No. 67 ranked recruit in the country, she averaged 22.1 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game in her career at American Heritage High School.
The Longhorns are 1-0 on the season after dismantling New Orleans, 131-36, on Tuesday. Texas will be on the road on Sunday to face No. 2 Stanford, the defending national champion, at 2 p.m.
