Class of 2023 guard Hannah Hidalgo has named Michigan, Duke, Notre Dame, Stanford, Ohio State, and Central Florida as her six potential colleges choices.
Hidalgo is one of the top players in the country and just came back from winning a gold medal with the Team USA 17U World Cup Team in Hungary.
Earlier this year, Hannah was a guest on The Basketball Society Podcast and gave an update on her recruitment. At the time, she named Stanford and Rutgers as two schools on her list. Now it looks like Rutgers is out of the running for Hidalgo, with the defending national champions Stanford still making it into the top six.
Some things stand out looking at Hidalgo’s six schools. The locations are scattered from California to North Carolina to Ohio. Notre Dame presents an interesting opportunity for Hidalgo to team up with fellow New Jersey product Olivia Miles, who led the nation in assists last season as a freshman. There is also the prospect of playing for Kara Lawson at Duke, and then two Big Ten programs in Michigan and Ohio State.
Hannah says the process is still “a lot” in trying to make her final decision. She’s still factoring in where she can be the best fit with her uptempo, defensive-oriented style of play. Her role and relationship with the program is important to her as well.
We should hope to find out in the coming months where Hannah Hidalgo will take her talents for her college career.
