WBB getting 2024 commits, interest and extending offers -- WEDNESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Anaya Hardy

While we're all still abuzz about the 2023-2024 Cards WBB appearance in the Globl Jam, let's add to the out-of-season hoops hysteria and talk about three high schoolers that have drawn the coaches interest in the class of 2024 and beyond. 

We'll start with Anaya Hardy. She's a 6'4" front-liner who hails from Detroit and Renaissance High School in the "motor city". She has committed to come to play her collegiate ball and be a student-athlete at UofL. She chose the Cards over Michigan and Syracuse for her services. She's the first commit for the 2024 WBB class at Louisville. 

She's busy this summer playing with the Michigan Storm tis summer in the Under Armour circuit. As a junior, she average a double-double for her high school squad, that went 24-2 and made it to the finals of the state tournament. 

Jaloni Cambridge

Jaloni Cambrdge is a 5'6" guard that has Louisville on her "final seven" list. She was in town recently playing in the Under Armour event. She's not focusing on college choice right now,, though, according to  her. She's currently channeling her time and efforts toward her AAU squad. She's also transferring to Montverde Academy, in Florida, for her senior year after playing as a junior at the Ensworth School in Nashville. 

There are sources out there that are calling Cambridge the best overall prospect in the Class of 2024. Check her out on YouTube or Twitter, She's the real deal at guard. She scored 41 points in Ensworth's loss in the Tennessee Stare Finals last season in Class AA. 

Bella Ragone

Finally, let's take a look at Bella Ragone.  She just picked up an offer from the Louisville women's basketball squad. She's in the 2026 class and attends Mill Creek H.S. in Georgia. She's the #1 prospect in the state in the 2026 class. 

She was here, too, for that Under Armour Tournament and  she's listed as a 6'2" wing. LSU and Northwestern also recently offered her. 

She'll certainly be one to keep an eye on as she goes through her next few years in high school.

Oh, if the name Ragone rings a bell, her dad Dave was a former UofL quarterback who s now the offensive coordinator with the Atlanta Falcons. Her mom, who was Marju Sober during her time at UofL, was a star Cardinals basketball player and was C-USA Player of the Week on three different occasions back in 2000. 

Whether it's getting the best out of high school, or getting the best out of the transfer portal, the coaches at UofL WBB are working hard to continue and bring in the best and most talented. 



  1. Yeah, I prefer getting high school kids, especially ones who actually STAY for their career at Louisville, understanding that when they come here, they may have to wait for their turn to shine. We rely on 1 year portal players, we end up losing 12 games.

  2. Cards will be OK in the ACC. Lots of veteran experienced players, but I really hope they can land Cambridge. She's AD and Dana in her skills.

  3. Yes we need game changers like AD and Dana.Go Cards
