ACES SCOUTING REPORT

“Ariel Atkins is a strong athletic wing with ability to knock down perimeter shots, score in transition, and defend.”

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“There is no one on the court who will out-work her. She is really passionate about the game and wants to do well.”

~ Brooke McCarty, Texas point guard

 

“Atkins is always good. When I get my Big 12 ballot at the end of the year, I always put her immediately because she’s just such a complete basketball payer. She’s poised, and she always hurts us. She’s always steady.”

~ Sherri Coale, Oklahoma head coach

 

“Ariel wakes up every morning and goes to bed every night trying to figure out how to be great. She’s not afraid to talk about her weaknesses, and she’s not afraid to ask questions.”

~ Karen Aston, Texas head coach
