As was detailed in the evaluation of guard Keeley Parks, it’s rare for middle school players on both the men’s and women’s sides to display incredibly well-refined skillsets this early in their development. However, there are always exceptions to the rule and the state of Oklahoma has yet another gem in plain sight set to grace the top end of the national rankings when it’s all said and done.
Class of 2025 guard Keziah Lofton has already proven herself to be a winner and player capable of taking over games for her team. A 3-time national grassroots champion, in 3 attempts, Lofton has created the pedigree and experience Division 1 programs are yearning to add to their programs. Yet, it’s the continued development and determination she has added to her game that should continue to excite college powerhouses in the coming seasons.
Lofton fills the stat sheets across the board and is a tough player to gameplan for. She readily adjusts to defensive schemes and finds ways to make impact plays for herself to produce or set up her teammates for success. Looking further into her overall skillset and impact on the court reveals why colleges are and will certainly continue to hope Lofton joins their program rather than suiting up across from them.
