WVU Women’s Basketball Lands in Top 8 for No. 40 Recruit



WVU Women's Basketball Landed in the Top 8 Schools for Top 40 Recruit in 2025, Caliyah DeVillasee

WVU women’s basketball has had a great season so far on the court, but things got even better on Friday when they landed in the top eight schools for one of the best recruits in the Class of 2025.

Caliyah DeVillasee, who ESPN HoopGurlz ranks No. 40 in the Class of 2025, placed WVU Women’s Basketball in her top eight schools on Friday. They join schools like Cincinnati, ACC schools in North Carolina and Syracuse, Big Ten schools in Maryland, Michigan State and Penn State, as well as Ole Miss.

DeVillasee plays for Our Lady of Good Counsel High School in Olney, Md. and for Elevate Elite in the Adidas Circuit for travel ball.

She averages 16.2 points 1.6 steals, 1.5 assists and 1.7 rebounds per game, respectively, while shooting a staggering 67% from the field this season. She also averaged 17.9 points, 3.4 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 2.1 steal per game, respectively, as a sophomore.

DeVillasee stands 5-foot-7 and is a guard that shows no fear in whoever is attempting to guard her. The best qualities she possesses are her dribbling and using that to go through opponents to score at the rim. She also can hit jumpers from mid-range/behind the arc and is solid as an on-ball defender, with the penchant to get a steal or two. While functioning as a primary scorer, DeVillasee has great court vision and is able to find her teammates with ease, even in tight situations.

DeVillasee picked WVU Women’s Basketball along with her other top eight schools, amongst 16 that she initially named back in November. Those schools that missed the cut are ACC programs in Boston College, Pitt, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest, as well as Dayton, Illinois, Kansas State and Kentucky.

WVU is 19-2 on the season and 8-2 in Big 12 play and hold the No. 23 ranking in the most recent AP Poll. First-year head coach Mark Kellogg and staff have not only excelled on the court, but also off the court, as they try to build for the future of the program with recruits like DeVillasee
