is she 2019? if so, we need her!
Agree. They have played international ball and certainly would bring that experience to the 2019-20 squad. They certainly could work their way into playing time as the season progresses and allow the starters to full court press knowing that there were bench players who could play capably. Alas, is there a European post recruit that would help?These are solid, well coached players, but I doubt either would impact the decisions of top caliber US recruits like Bueckers, HVL and certainly not any of the potential BIGs in the 2020 class.
Oregon: Cazorla (Spain), Sabally sisters (Germany), and Yaeger (Australia) currently on the roster. Two incoming Aussies + 1 Brit (!). Also recruiting another from Germany (Bessoir) and Muhl.
From the videos and games that I have seen of both Anna Makurat & Nika Muhl neither player would/should be considered slow. They clearly don't have as many fast twitch muscles as say Aubrey Griffin, Gabby Williams or Moriah Jefferson but from what I have seen they could keep up with say Kia Nurse or Christyn Williams.Which of the two players of interest was said to have slow foot speed? (somebody posted that somewhere)
Muffet is not among those carrying passports in search of talent.
I would love to see hockey style line substitutions and just run teams into the ground.I have a feeling UConn is going to have a couple of top 5 players over the next couple of years as well as some international players. We are going to get big fast. I would like to see Deberry Azzi Paige and a big that Geno has been eyeing and spending alot of time with down south. Add to that class some international players and we're back on top and unstoppable
Rueck has previously had a player from Germany and Canada, currently has an Australian and two players that played high school or juco ball in the U.S. but were originally international (Poland and Paraguay).
There are indications that Geno may be looking at other European players beside the 2 we know about.Would LOVE to land both. Maybe one of the foreign bigs too. Then a big or 2 from grad transfers or JUCO or regular transfers. I think once ALL is said and done (final recruiting for next year), UCONN will be in far better shape than they are right now.
