Top-10 national prospect puts South Carolina basketball on list of favorites South Carolina WBB: Divine Bourrage recruiting update | The State

South Carolina basketball target Divine Bourrage put the Gamecocks on her top-6 list this weekend.

South Carolina basketball coach Dawn Staley has her fingerprints all over the top-ranked prospects in the class of 2025. In fact, six of the top-10 in both the ESPN HoopGurlz and On3 Her rankings have been long-time Gamecock targets, and recently, a seventh has been hearing from USC, as well.

One of these elite prospects is 5-star guard Divine Bourrage. Bourrage, who is ranked 5th nationally by ESPN and 7th by On3, is an Iowa native who plays at Davenport North High School. The 5’10” rising senior can play either guard spot and has been hearing from virtually every major program in the country.

Over the weekend, the talented perimeter player trimmed her list of favorites down to six, and the South Carolina Gamecocks made the cut along with the LSU Tigers, Arizona Wildcats, Baylor Bears, Illinois Fighting Illini, and Virginia Tech Hokies. Of note, the home state Iowa Hawkeyes did not make the list. She announced her list on her personal Instagram account.

Bourrage is a dynamic athlete with the ball in her hands, and she uses her quickness and tight handle to get to the basket seemingly at will. She also has the ability to make tough shots from all three levels. When she doesn’t have the ball in her hand, she is a catch-and-shoot threat from outside, and her improving jumper is available to her off the dribble, as well.

As a lead guard, Bourrage can handle distributing duties, and her impressive ball handling translates to easy passing opportunities for her to find open teammates.

On defense, Bourrage is tough and fights to make everything difficult for her opponent. She is a good on-ball stopper, but she also excels at disrupting passing lanes when she is playing away from the ball.
