Samantha Fuehring says knew before she got to the University of Louisville on her official visit that UofL was where she wanted to play her college basketball.
“Before visiting, I always had a gut feeling. And I just woke up one day and said I need to go here,” Fuehring told NJ.com. “And just visiting there made everything much better. I felt like I fit in. The coaching staff was great, the girls were funny, and everything was just amazing there.”
Fuehring, a 6-foot-3 forward, averaged 20.9 points and 7.8 rebounds per game for a Lodi, N.J. Immaculate Conception team that went 22-6 last season. She is ranked 26th by ProspectNations.com and she picked UofL over California, Dayton, Rutgers, Seton Hall, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Tri-State Media.com describes Fuehring as “an edgy, hard-nosed forward with perimeter skills and a college-ready body. Sam prefers to bang inside than score outside but does both with a high level of efficiency. She plays with intensity and is a fierce competitor.”
U of L’s 2015 class, which is ranked No. 2 nationally by All-Star Girls Report behind only UConn, also includes No. 2 Asia Durr (guard), No. 15 Taja Cole (guard), No. 27 Erin DeGrate (center) and No. 33 Brianna Jones (guard).
