RE: WBB Recruiting
Speaking of offers, UT has offered 2022 5'10 PG Nayo Lear from Thornwood HS in South Holland IL.
She has offers from Penn State and WMU, among others.

Madison Royal-Davis (Toledo Christian) is going to Butler. The Blade article says that she was offered by Bowling Green, Kent State, and Ohio U. No offer, apparently, from the Rockets.

She had an offer from Toledo. That was even reported in the Blade a while back. It's been reported though that UT's '21 recruiting class is full already. So, either she wasn't interested, or UT backed off, or someone else bit first.

Thanks for the info. I was just going off the most recent Blade article. Glad to know that the Rockets went after her. Apparently she wanted a bigger name conference.

RE: WBB Recruiting
Rockets are looking in non-traditional places it seems, as they have offered 2022 5'9 combo guard Bella Swedlund from Winner, South Dakota. (Good city for an athlete to come from.)
Has a ton of offers, most of which are lower level schools, but she does have an offer from Illinois. Also has an EMU offer.

Sees the court well and has a heck of a range on her 3 point shots.

And she was player of the year in NY state in the large school division, as a junior. Excited to see her as a Rocket.

It appears she's been playing in the British professional league since she was 15.

Story about the signing of Cook and Doherty:

So, Ware did not sign yet. Hope that is not a bad sign and she will sign in Feb.

RE: WBB Recruiting
That big time recruit out of Notre Dame Academy recently released her top 10 schools...and Toledo was nowhere to be found. How in the hell hasn’t Coach Cullop formed enough of a relationship with her to even make her top 10...that’s embarrassing and says a lot about the current state of recruiting for our WBB program. I expect better.

I would bet that out of her top ten schools less than half will have the same type of fan support that she would, if she ended up being a lady Rocket... But yeah, I think TC and the Rocket program would have at the least, been in the young ladie’s top ten ...

Look at her picks and (except for UM) they are all on the coasts or in the southwest. Can't blame her for wanting to go somewhere warm.

She's a top 10 recruit by some folks, and has been recruited by pretty much every big school in the country since she was in like 7th grade. I am sure UT made an effort to feel her out early on, but once it becomes clear she wants to go elsewhere, no real point to keep trying when you can focus on other players who you have a chance at actually getting. It's not like being in her top 10 would get UT any kudos or anything.

Yep, 1 for 4 by my count. 1 star in McIntyre, 2 that never played a single possession before being kicked, and one who's been a bit player at best.

There's plenty wrong with the WBB program right now, but I can't agree with this criticism. Most top-flight players want to go to a top-flight program, and top-flight doesn't mean finishing in the top 30 annually in attendance. You're talking about a player with a legitimate chance to make a good living playing basketball. That type of player is unlikely to make a sentimental choice to play at UT. If you were her parent, what would you advise her?

If I was her parent she’d go to UT, end of story. But, yeah, you’re right.

Sentimental choice or not, the ND gal is good but I don’t think she is WNBA good...

Maybe not play but a lot of them make a sentimental choice to acknowledge that home town team in their "interests." I don't think it unusual to do that. Reasons here? Who knows? Maybe the kid just doesn't connect that way. Could be either side of the equation.

Wishing her the best.

Interesting story on Jessica Cook. Said she was dead set on another school in Ohio (doesn't say which one) until Steven's moved to UT and convinced her to visit, and the rest is history.
