Penn State Women’s Basketball Places in Top Eight Schools for No. 40 2025 Recruit

PSU Women's Basketball finishes in top eight schools for No. 40 recruit in the Class of 2025

PSU women’s basketball has had a great season so far on the court, but things got even better on Friday when they landed in the top eight schools for one of the best recruits in the Class of 2025.

Caliyah DeVillasee, who ESPN HoopGurlz ranks No. 40 in the Class of 2025, placed PSU Women’s Basketball in her top eight schools on Friday. They join ACC schools in North Carolina and Syracuse,Big 12 schools like Cincinnati and West Virginia, Big Ten schools in Maryland andMichigan State, as well as Ole Miss.

DeVillasee plays for Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Olney, Md. and for Elevate Elite in the Adidas Circuit for travel ball.

She averages 16.2 points 1.6 steals, 1.5 assists and 1.7 rebounds per game, respectively, while shooting a staggering 67% from the field this season. She also averaged 17.9 points, 3.4 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 2.1 steal per game, respectively, as a sophomore.

DeVillasee stands 5-foot-7 and is a guard that shows no fear in whoever is attempting to guard her. The best qualities she possesses are her dribbling and using that to go through opponents to score at the rim. She also can hit jumpers from mid-range/behind the arc and is solid as an on-ball defender, with the penchant to get a steal or two. While functioning as a primary scorer, DeVillasee has great court vision and is able to find her teammates with ease, even in tight situations.

DeVillasee picked PSU Women’s Basketball along with her other top eight schools, amongst 16 that she initially named back in November. Those schools that missed the cut are ACC programs in Boston College, Pitt, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest, as well as Dayton, Illinois, Kansas State and Kentucky.

Penn State is 16-6 overall on the season and 7-4 in the Big Ten, the fourth best record in the conference. Head coach Carolyn Keiger has her program doing well on the court in her fifth season and is making sure she’ll keep it going in the future, with great recruits like DeVillasee interested in the program.
