PISCATWAY, N.J. (November 26, 2012) – FullCourt.com ranked the Rutgers women’s basketball team with the 11th best recruiting class in the nation following the fall signing period. Signee Tyler Scaife (Little Rock, Ark.), a 5-9 guard, was among the Full Court Fresh 50 Player Rankings coming in as the top overall point guard and sixth-best recruit in the class.
Scaife averaged 25.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 3.7 steals per game as helped she Hall High School to a 23-6 record and the Class 7A semifinals last year as a junior.
