Doing the math, we had 12 scholarship athletes last season, are losing two to graduation (Brown and Emsbo), and adding three recruits (Battiston, part of that recruiting class, is already on campus.) That makes 13, and Nelson makes 14. So we have room for one more for the 2024-25, assuming nobody is transferring out.

I don't follow recruiting that closely, so I don't know how the 25-26 class (upcoming high school seniors) is for guards. I have to assume that Nelson is joining to contribute in 25-26, and isn't being counted for 24-25 due to her injury. While she may recover in time to play at some point in the season, she and the team may be better served by her redshirting.

Regarding returning players, the DWBB Facebook/Twitter feeds have provided highlight/hype videos for Jackson, Mair and Battiston so far, implying that they are returning. Looking forward to other videos being posted (they seem to be coming out one-a-day.)
