Asia Durr, the No. 1 player in the class of 2015, has decided to play her college ball at Louisville.
Durr, a 5'10 ambidextrous point guard from St. Pius X in Atlanta, has been touted as a hoops phenom for years now. She chose U of L over fellow finalists Baylor, Maryland, Duke and Notre Dame.
Durr has led St. Pius X to consecutive Georgia state championships, averaging 24.4 points and 7.1 rebounds as a junior in 2013-14. In July, she led Team USA to a gold medal at the FIBA World Championships by scoring 17 points and dishing out four assists in a 77-75 win over Spain in the final. She was the team's second-leading scorer for the tournament, averaging 14.3 ppg.
As it stands now, Louisville has the top-ranked recruiting class in both men's and women's basketball. Not too shabby.
Before Jeff Walz arrived at U of L, the Cardinals had won a grand total of four NCAA Tournament games and had never been past the tournament's opening weekend. Now they're an established national powerhouse capable of landing the No. 1 recruit in the nation.
Eventually it's going to happen, Jeff Walz is going to bring a national championship back to Louisville.
