6-foot-1 forward Bayli McClard, from Fresno, California and 6-foot-5 Emma Wolfram, from Kamloops, B.C. committed to Gonzaga.

McClard averaged 18.5 points last season as a junior at Hanford High and was the MVP of her league in Central California. Her coaches call her "versatile" and someone who will "become one of the great players to come out of Gonzaga."

Wolfram brings noticeable size to the Zags as well as international playing experience. She helped the Canadian U17 team to a bronze medal at the World Championships, scoring 15 points and 15 rebounds in the third place game in Amsterdam.

"Nest year we're going to have 6-5, 6-5, 6-4, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 and a ton of skill," said coach Kelly Graves. "[Wolfram] has played internationally and at a really high level. She's a winner. So, I think Emma is going to be a perfect fit here."

"I think Bayli McClard has a chance to be a terrific player," he added. "She can do everything. I liken it to baseball. If she was a baseball player she would be considered a five-tool player."
