Elite 2016 CA Wing DIJONAI CARRINGTON is down to 6 schools – shares thoughts

9 /7/ 2015

6’0″ Wing DIJONAI CARRINGTON from San Diego, CA  (Horizon H.S. ) is ranked among the top 30 players in the 2016 class ( by espnW ) and in my opinion has to be one of the most complete perimeter players with her dynamic Offensive ability and Defensive prowess.

She runs with the Nike sponsored Cal Sparks AAU program.

A very impressive overall young lady, including her prowess academically possessing a 4.4 GPA

Her brother Darren (Sophomore ) is a Wide Receiver for the Oregon Ducks . He scored 2 TD’s in last year’s Rose Bowl.

” D “  has a chance to be an impact player in college on both ends of the floor at the BCS level and certainly has had an Ample list of suitors vying for her pledge.  She possesses everything you would look for in an Elite recruit ( Size for her position, legitimate Versatility, shot making prowess, athleticism, Toughness , depth of character, perseverance through adversity , excels in classroom , outgoing personality and impressive maturity. )

simply put…. Dijonai Carrington is SPECIAL !!

Late last night  she took a big step in her recruiting process and planning her future, when she went public with narrowing down her list to a Final 6 schools.





Here are my top 6 schools alphabetically are

Notre Dame
South Carolina
Texas A&M

Turned down some GREAT universities, but I am confident in my top 6 and can’t wait to take my official visits to 5 of them!

Dijonai shared with Coach Bill what allowed each school / program to make her Final cut

CAL: As a California girl, the location is pretty cool. Also, I love the
coaching staff and the unity that they seem to have. Whenever one of them calls
me, they are usually with 1 or more of the other coaches which shows me that
they are a family. You can tell that the players love each other and enjoy
playing for their coaches as well as one another. 

LSU: Coach Nikki Caldwell
is a class act & she is such a great coach. I feel I can learn so much about how
to become a better woman from her, not just a better basketball player.

NOTRE DAME: Elite program that has been to the final four and the
championship numerous time is the last few years. I love the mentor ship that
I've already received from assistant coach Niele Ivey as a woman who played at ND and is now a
coach. I believe she can help to develop me into an All-American.

CAROLINA: Coach Dawn Staley is one of the best to play and will be one of the
best coach. She will push me and not allow me to make any excuses. Also Coach
McCray is like a mom away from home and she is very nurturing. The love that the
state of South Carolina gives the team is unheard of in women's basketball.

STANFORD: First and foremost, a degree from Stanford means that you are set
for life. I've worked hard in the class room and got accepted. Playing under
Tara Vanderveer, I can only improve. The location is great. Lastly I feel that
they don't have any player like me and that I can have an immediate impact

TEXAS A&M: The coaching staff is so great! They, too, are like a
family! The team chemistry seems strong& they have some instrumental players
graduating this upcoming year which means they will need people to fill those
spots, immediately.
