It is easy to just get wrapped up in the recruiting for men’s basketball and football. And in both of those sports, the Cards are doing very well. However, it is about time to start taking a look at what Jeff Walz is doing for the future of the women’s basketball team. He is putting together a class that will likely be in the top 3, and could possibly be #1 when it’s all said and done. That is pretty good for a team that was playing their home games in Cardinal Arena not too long ago.

ProspectsNation.com is a great resource for women’s basketball recruiting. According to their rankings, the Cards have one 5-star player and four 4-star players in the 2015 class. Asia Durr is obviously the gem of the group, but right now the LOWEST ranked commit is 36th in the country! Pretty impressive.

ESPN.com also puts together rankings for women’s basketball recruiting. When you look at that, you see that four out of the five commits are 5-stars! Here is how their list looks…

Asia Durr – #2 overall; 5-star player

Taja Cole – #29 overall; 5-star player

Erin DeGrate – #41 overall; 5-star player

Brianna Jones – #43 overall; 5-star player

Samantha Fuehring – #65 overall; 4-star player

All of this is coming on the heels of the 8th ranked class in 2014 according to ESPN. It’s only a matter of time. That National Championship is coming…

The Stemmys (My Midweek Awards)

red carpet 2

 

In this week’s edition of The Stemmys we touch on recruiting, Louisville Football and fantasy football!

The “Who’d you say can’t recruit?!”¬†Award: Bobby Petrino

All we have heard is how Bobby isn’t getting it done on the recruiting trail. Well he shut that door this week with an emphatic SLAM!! Just this week alone Petrino landed former 4 star All-American WR Paul Harris and went into Bama country to steal 4 star LB Amonte Caban. The Cards now have the #27 class according to Rivals.com. Still say Bobby can’t recruit……….I’ll wait.

Jeff Walz just picked up what some people are saying is his biggest recruit ever! Asia Durr, ranked the #1 player in the country by many scouting services, has committed to Louisville over women’s basketball powerhouses Notre Dame, Baylor, Duke, and Maryland.

Durr is a 5’10 point guard from Douglasville, Georgia. ESPN ranks her as the top point guard in the country and the #2 player overall, and a 5-star player obviously.

As good as she is on the court, it appears Walz is getting one heck of a person off the court too. This from ESPN.com:

In addition, Durr, who carries a 3.2 GPA and is interested in studying sports management, is active in her community.

She has volunteered on behalf of the Shoes For Haiti campaign and has written letters to U.S. troops as part of the Works of Mercy service program. She has helped the homeless, working with the Destiny World Church ministry, and the hungry as part of the Meals on Wheels Association of America.
