The Cardinal’s class takes over the No. 1 spot – for the time being. Can Stanford hold on? Sophia Smith is a high-impact player make the move there, and she should thrive in Palo Alto.

With the loss of Cassidy Tshimbilanga, the 2018 class drops down to No. 2. Still in a very good place heading into a new season, and a foreign addition or another transfer could put the team back into contention for the top spot.
