Dana Evans...Top 2017 WBB guard...visits Louisville -- WEDNESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE



EVANS RANKED 2017 #1 PG and #3 OVERALL PLAYER BY PROSPECTS NATION

Note: Portions of today's article were previously part of articles in the Chicago Sun-Times


Dana Evans...who is ranked as the top 2017 point guard and #3 overall by Prospects Nation visited the UofL campus yesterday...and by all accounts, the visit went very well. 

From Twitter:


GREAT visit today at Lousiville.. 🏀

We'll give her a break on the spelling of Louisville... we've all mis-spelled stuff on tweets and I have to proof-read and spell check our daily columns several times...plenty of time to get that worked out...Ms Evans.
The fact that the Cards WBB program is in the running for the 5'6", five-star point guard out of Gary, IN is the story here.
She led the state of Indiana in scoring last season and was also a participant for the USA U-18 women's basketball team tryouts last month.
Baylor, DePaul, Marquette, Indiana, Purdue, Oklahoma State, UCLA, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and West Virginia are all listed on her list currently...along with Louisville.
Her stock is on the rise...having moved up six spots to #3 in the latest Prospects Nation poll. Words such as leader, distributor, scorer and team player are used to describe the Chicago Times Girls Player of the Year. Her 35.8 points per game, 5.0 assists and 5.3 steals a contest would back those descriptions up.

No clear favorite is being touted by Evans yet...there are still visits to make and places to see...but there is definitely room at Louisville for a top-flight point guard in the 2017 class. Cards WBB fans have commented that the point was a weakness for Louisville in the 2015-16 season and despite the additions of Sydney Zambrotta and Taylor Johnson to the roster, along with returnees Asia Durr and Arica Carter, the philosophy is that you go after over-the-top skilled point guards when you have the chance.

Evans looks to be one of those.

The Chicago Sun-Times reveals more interesting information on Evans...who reportedly will trim her list to five schools in mid-to-late June:

West Side coach Rod Fisher said he discusses the recruiting process with Evans when he's asked.
"I'm not going to try and persuade her to go where I think she should go, or anything like that, because the decision is completely up to her,'' he said.
"Wherever she goes, she's going to make an impact on the program — an immediate impact.''
Evans plans to give programs a long, hard look before making her decision.
"I want to go a school where I love it, am comfortable and feel like I'm at home,'' she said. "I want to make sure I really like the players and make sure they like me for who I am, and not just as a basketball player.''
Evans indicated coaching stability will be another factor.
That wouldn't seem to be a problem at Louisville...where Jeff Walz is as solid a fixture on the Louisville campus as The Thinker statue peering out over the lawn bordering Third Street.
