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.
|Class Year||Overall Rank||Position Rank||Nat’l Rating||Pos||Name||State||HT/PPG||School|
|Brianna Jones||New York||5’9″/||L’ville|
|Samantha Fuehring||New Jersey||6’2″/||L’ville|
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…
Jeff Walz has just landed a big time commitment for the class of 2015. Erin DeGrate, a 6’4 (or 6’5 on some sites) center from Waco, Texas, was visiting Louisville this past weekend. She got back home to Texas and made her commitment official to the Cards. ProspectsNation.com ranks her as the 8th best center in the class, and the 36th best player overall.
In the end, DeGrate chose Louisville over offers from Baylor, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Washington, and Kansas.
According to SwishAppeal.com the #1 player in the nation Asia Durr is one of five visitors on Louisville’s campus this weekend.
Per multiple reports, the nation’s number one prospect, Asia Durr, is visiting Louisville this weekend. Other players that are on official visits with the Cardinals are 6-foot-5 post Erin DeGrate, top-euro guard Angela Salvadores. Current commits Taja Cole and Brianna Jones are in town this weekend as well.
Durr (#1 player) narrowed her list to Louisville, Duke, Baylor, Notre Dame, and Maryland while DeGrate (top 50 player) is looking at Baylor, Kansas, Louisville, Texas Tech, Washington, Tennessee, and Texas A&M.
