Gophers women’s basketball gets commitment from a top in-state guard

The Gophers women’s basketball team received a commitment Thursday from Wayzata guard Mara Braun for its 2022 recruiting class.

“No place like home,” Braun tweeted. “#SkiUMah”

With the 5-foot-11 guard, the Gophers now have three pledges from five of the top rated in-state recruits for the 2022 class. Forward Mallory Heyer of Chaska and guard Nia Holloway of Eden Prairie committed in October.

The top-rated recruit is Maya Nnaji of Hopkins; the five-star recruit has not made a college choice.

Braun, who also plays for the North Tartan AAU team, has a fan in former Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway, who tweeted, “Congrats Mara! Great kid and example in our community!”
