A day after defeating in-state foe Drake and landing 5-star prospect, No. 1 2018 recruit in Iowa, Ashley Joens, the Iowa State women’s basketball landed its second 2018 commit: Chandler, Ariz. guard, Maddie Frederick.
The 5-foot-11 guard is the No. 16 guard in the 2018 class according to ESPN’s HoopGurlz.
Through the first-half of her high school career, Frederick has claimed several accolades. She earned first-team all-state after leading her school, Chandler Hamilton, to a state title after several key players went down with injury.
Last season, Frederick averaged 14.6 points and 2.3 assists per game. During her freshman year, she averaged 8.7 points and 2.8 assists per contest.
With Frederick committing alongside Joens in ISU’s 2018 class, the two guards will help fill voids that will be left by Jadda Buckley and Emily Durr–who are set to graduate right before the Frederick and Joens arrive in Ames.
Frederick committed after taking an unofficial visit to Iowa State during the Cyclones’ win over Drake.
