(Great) Recruiting News!!!
The #1 HS Junior (Class of '10) according to HoopGurlz, 6'1 SF Samarie Walker verbally committed to the UConn Huskies this weekend after being offered a scholarship during her unofficial visit to campus for First Night and opening day practice. Walker attends the same HS as former UConn Great Tamika (Williams) Raymond and the two spoke recently about how great UConn is athletically and academically and how she would be a perfect fit. Her HS coach says that this weekend's visit was just a confirmation of all Walker's dreams and hard work paying off.
Still no word on 6'0 SG Krista Gross (Class of '09) who visited First Night and opening day practice as well. Gross is down to UConn, Stanford, North Carolina, and Florida. Also attending First Night and opening day practice were Kelly Faris, a 5'11 SG from the Class of '09, the only player that has already given an oral commitment and Olivia Bresnahan, a 5'11 SF from the Class of '10.
