Argyle’s Standifer Commits to Clemson

by Steve Gamel

Argyle sophomore Sydney Standifer may still be recovering from a season-ending knee injury suffered this summer, but that hasn’t stopped her from making waves on the recruiting scene. Standifer, who led the Lady Eagles to their fourth consecutive Class 4A state title as a freshman, verbally committed to Clemson in January to put an end to a short recruitment run that saw her rack up roughly 10 Division I offers. The news was first reported by the Dallas Morning News and Denton Record-Chronicle. Her older sister, Gabby, graduated last year and is now playing at Fresno State. The earliest Sydney can sign her official letter of intent is November of her senior year. “After visiting this week, they really made me feel like I was at home and a part of the team,” Standifer told the Denton Record-Chronicle. “They offered me nearly a year ago and have recruited me consistently. I got to watch practice and see how hard the players work for the coaches and how much the coaches get out of them. That was important, because I want a coach that will push me every day.” Argyle is on its typical role as the regular season draws to a close and playoffs get underway. But it’s hard to argue Standifer’s impact before her injury. She scored 22 points in last year’s state title game and was subsequently named MVP. On the year, she averaged 15.4 points, 4.6 assists, and 3 steals per game. She was also named to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches All-State team and was the District 9-4A co-newcomer of the year.
