Nice break down for those of us who don't focus that closely on other teams rosters.
On the publicity - well the other #1 has already quietly committed somewhere so there is no chance of hoopla over that - might as well focus on Durr.

I guess if you want attention and you have the ability to get attention, and you position yourself to grab attention, you get attention.

The media picks it up, and if you do well at your choice of school, promotes you (three to see), thus you have effectively marketed yourself and raised your stock in the post graduation world.

It's a gamble.

Do kids worry about losing respect of others while taking this path? Well, I can't answer that, but I can point out that during all of the severe weather this weekend, if you turned to the weather channel to get an update on the severity in your area, likely you would get programming such as "Fat Guys in the Woods" (I kid you not) instead of a forecast. Just saying...

I wish her the best of luck...

The media already made her recruitment an event. She's just making it easy on herself by catering to them. If you have a press conference, it probably saves you from having reporters calling you for quotes.

I mean, just my $0.02. I actually think Asia has been pretty, low key about her recruitment.
She has been pretty low key about her recruitment. I don't think she's going to ND or Baylor because she didn't take any official visit to either one of those schools.

No she wasn't. It was Arike Ogunbowale took her official visit to ND this past weekend. Durr hasn't visited Baylor or ND at all and signs are pointing to her choosing Louisville.

If not us (and it's not), then I hope she picks Louisville. Kinda like Walz, and now that they are not in our conference, good luck to them.

Still would have loved to see her play for UCONN. I think she's gonna be special. Or as Geno would say, really, really good.

Good Luck to Asia where ever she goes. As I have said it will have no effect on UConn either way. UConn continues to get better leaving everybody else in the dust. When your number 1 in the polls the view never changes. Every other team is still looking up at UConn.
