2014 Commits for Card Women’s Hoops

20130209-191655.jpgThe Louisville Women’s Basketball program picked up their fourth commit for the class of 2014 yesterday. Keil Moore of ProspectsNation.com had a nice article on the latest commit along with the previous three (including Syd).

Getting excited about Louisville Women’s Basketball.

After a great run that saw the Louisville women’s basketball program make it all the way to the national championship game, coach Jeff Walz and his staff have managed to capitalize with a good deal of recruiting success. Myisha Hines-Allen’s decision to pick Louisville over Georgia Tech and West Virginia is the next example of the success carrying over to recruiting momentum.

“The school in general was an amazing place,” Hines-Allen, the No. 13 prospect in the ELITE 100, said. “I felt like home while I was there.”

Hines-Allen picked Louisville after making an unofficial visit to Georgia Tech in early June in addition to official visits to Louisville and West Virginia in August.

The 6-foot-2 forward has a combination of size and athleticism that is rarely seen on the recruiting circuit. She is a much improved perimeter shooter and is also capable of putting the ball on the deck and making a play. She should fit in well at the future ACC school as she shares similarities with current rising senior Sarah Hammond.

“The style of play was also a huge factor,” she added.

With the addition of Hines-Allen, Louisville now has four talented wings and forwards on the way to campus next year. Mariya Moore of Oakland, Calif., Arianna Freeman of Manassas, Va., and Sydney Brackemyre of Cincinnati, Ohio. With the forward positions locked up for the next couple of years, look for Louisville to focus heavily on adding true post play and a point guard with their remaining scholarships. Jatarie White of Charlotte, N.C., Dekeiya Cohen of Charleston, S.C., and Gabby Green of Oakland, Calif., are players Louisville may still be looking to add to their 2014 class.

U of L Elite Camp

This past weekend Syd attended the Louisville Women’s Elite Basketball Camp. Even though she was limited in what she could do, she had a good day with the team and coaching staff. Hard to believe that a year from now she will be a student at Louisville and an official member of Card Nation.

She sent this pic with the team and the coaches.
