Chloe Briggs, a 5’11” senior guard from Ontario, California (Ontario Christian HS), has committed to the UW Huskies Women’s Basketball program and head coach Tina Langley.
A Hot Commodity
A smooth, left-handed, 5’11 guard out of Ontario Christian(Ontario, CA), Chloe Briggs is a hot commodity with standout offers from Stanford, Oregon, UCLA, Baylor and Arkansas.
The much sought after 2023 4-star recruit gained recognition as the on-court catalyst of well-respected powerhouse Team Taurasi (Cal Storm) on the EYBL Nike circuit, by demonstrating her ability to rise to any level of competition.
Briggs is a combo guard with point guard instincts and a confident presence.
In my review of game film, Chloe Briggs plays the game at a confident and quick, yet controlled, pace.
Briggs demonstrates excellent playmaker’s vision, crisp passing and exceptional court awareness of her teammates and defenders.
Briggs often demonstrates her ability to play like a classic point guard with a strong penetrate-and-dish game; as well as, scoring off the dribble-drive or hitting the deep three when the defender sags off her.
What sets Briggs apart is her creative one-on-one ability, as well as her smooth shooting stroke off-the-dribble to the three-point arc and beyond.
Chloe Briggs is just hard to guard with the ball in her hands, as she is quick with with a shifty change-of-pace, change-of-direction dribble to setup a drive into the lane.
Briggs displays exceptional basketball IQ at all times; and coupled with her on-ball creativity and shot-making ability, it makes her a very tough matchup.
As a defender, Briggs demonstrates good anticipation with quick hands and feet.
Chloe Briggs should be able to contribute at UW immediately as a freshman, because of her exceptional basketball IQ, deep shooting range and her all-around game.
Overall, Chloe Briggs’s skills and style of play should mesh well with Washington’s 2022 recruits (Hannah Stines, Elle Ladine, Teagan Brown and Shayla Gillmer) — it is easy to envision them all playing cohesively together for the Huskies in the future.
The addition of Chloe’s 2023 talents, following UW’s 2022 recruiting class, suggests the Huskies will be looking to play “small ball” at times with an emphasis on three-point shooting, motion offense and opportunistic up-tempo play.
Coach Langley and her staff have made a big statement by kicking off their 2023 recruiting class with Chloe Briggs and they may not be done yet.
