We're in the midst of one of the NCAA's contact periods for basketball recruiting, when college coaches are most active in pursuing high school players. It's a time of year when commitments are made, as Eden Prairie's Tori Schlagel showed Tuesday when she tweeted that she will play in college for South Dakota State.

Let's take a look at college choices by Minnesota's top girls basketball players, presented as the 2023-24 Dream Team, five starters and 15 other contenders. It's not too early. Practice officially begins Nov. 13.

The top five in the Dream Team chosen by Star Tribune reporter Ron Haggstrom doesn't have a player taller than 6 feet, but three players are headed to prominent Division I programs, and two sophomores yet to make commitments are certain to do the same.
