Anaya Peoples (#7 HG, #4 PN, 22 Blue Star), is a 5’10” PG from Illinois, who played club ball with 2018 commit, Katlyn Gilbert. While there is the commitment of 2018 PG Jenna Brown, Lili Thompson is only here for one year and Ali Patberg has transferred, which translated into a definite need for a second point guard).
As FA has pointed out in numerous posts, Anaya and Katlyn not only play together but are friends. Their personal and playing relationship will continue to South Bend.
As for influencing 2018. Given this commitment, one hopes possible guards under consideration/who are considering ND will take strong notice that they'd be playing with some top-notch PGs in Jenna Brown and Anaya Peoples. (Yes, I'm thinking of Christyn Williams.)
Interesting aside and thought: Besides being fierce high school rivals, Abby Prohaska and Sammie Puisis are also AAU teammates and apparently good friends. Wonder if there could be P-squared combo in South Bend as well?
