A team that Quentin Hillsman said could be his best ever at Syracuse has added the fifth member of its incoming freshman class.

Raven Fox, a guard from Elizabeth Seton High School in Maryland, signed her National Letter of Intent to come to Syracuse, SU Athletics announced on Friday.

Fox wasn't rated in the top 100 players on ESPN's Hoopgurlz, but scored 17.7 points and had 4.5 rebounds per game as a senior at Elizabeth Seton.  She was her team's leading scorer and earned first team honors in the Washington Catholic Athletic conference.

"Raven is an exceptional athlete with the ability to score from all spots on the floor," Hillsman said in a statement. "She is a fierce competitor that played in arguably one of the best leagues in the country, where she was the leading scorer."

She joins a freshman class that was once rated the 21st in the country by ESPN's Dan Olson Collegiate Girls Basketball Report.  Fox joins Julia Chandler (Toronto, Canada), Davida Dale (Providence, R.I.), Abby Grant (Suwanee, Ga.), and Jade Phillips (Raleigh, N.C.) in Syracuse's Class of 2015-16.

Fox also becomes the third guard of the group after Dale and Grant.  Last season, the Orange had eight guards on its 14-player roster.  Four of the top five minutes leaders were guards.  Hillsman loves to load up on high-scoring guards and he gets another player in Fox that projects to fit that mold.
