Discovery Canyon's Ashten Prechtel announces commitment to Stanford women's basketball

Ashten Prechtel, one of the state's top girls basketball players, has committed to Stanford.

Prechtel will be a senior at Discovery Canyon in the fall. She announced her commitment to the Cardinal on Twitter:

Rated as the No. 25 recruit nationally by espnW, Prechtel had narrowed her top three choices to UCLA, Texas and Stanford.

As a junior last season, the 6-foot-5 Prechtel averaged 18.4 points and 14.3 rebounds per game in helping the Thunder go 15-9 and reach the Class 4A state tournament. The 14.3 rebounds were the second-most of any player in the state, and led all 3A, 4A and 5A players.

In May, Prechtel tried out for the USA Basketball under-17 national team, and was one of the final 45 players as part of that tryout.

She joins Regis Jesuit's Fran Belibi (2019) and Cherry Creek's Jana Van Gytenbeek (2020) in committing to Stanford.
