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.

“I’ve always been a helping person,” Durr said. “It’s part of my responsibility to give back to the community. I was brought up to know that when much is given, much is required to give back.

“But I also just love to see the smiles on the faces of the people we help. It brings me joy and brightens my day.”

Here are some scouting reports from events she has played in…

Central American Games-June 2013: Dominating left-handed combo guard delivers the complete package in the backcourt; manufactures and attacks, consistently delivers in the mid-range game; fluid off the dribble, body control draws contact and finishes the play; superb leader in half-court game; anticipator defensively, converts in pressure; the elite prospect in the class of 2015. (Olson)

Boo Williams-April 12: Poise, balance and consistency are not things usually associated with young players, but Durr is far from your average freshman guard. At 5-10, she can play any of the three perimeter positions and adapt her game. Her smooth athleticism and terrific body control often are deceiving because she doesn’t look as fast as someone running at the limits of her balance. She uses her body well in traffic, initiates contact and has two go-to moves to score on the drive. Those two moves are a smooth pull-up jumper as well as a floater that she uses anywhere inside of 15 feet. The shot selection issues noted in the past weren’t on display as much this weekend as Durr has firmly placed herself in the discussion for inclusion in the super elite prospects in the 2015 class.

EBA Super 64-June 11: This left handed guard has the game to warrant the attention of tip tier recruiters if she continues on her current path. Her attack is fluid and constant. The one on one skills she utilizes are advanced for her age and get her to the rim time and again. The first step is explosive and the confidence she has is impressive. She’s willing to use a change of speed and direction to create her own looks as well as some for her teammates. Both her jumper and pull up appeared consistent and were high percentage looks for this event. The decision making aspect of her game is still a work in process as is her shot selection. While her on ball defense was solid, her vision on the weakside needs some serious and immediate attention to make her a factor in a team defense. (Lewis)

Boo Williams-April 11: Displays a great deal of confidence as a point guard. Plays with her head up and has a knack for delivering timely passes. (Bodine)

And then there is this. Probably good that I am not a practice player with the women’s team anymore. She is going to embarrass some of those fellas.
