2018 PROSPECT CHOOSES LOUISVILLE OVER KENTUCKY
She's a 5'8" (or 5'9") point guard...depending on who you talk to and she was ranked as the 23rd best player in the state.
As a freshman.
She'll be a junior in the fall and Seygan Robins has revealed that she has verballed to the Louisville Cardinals women's basketball team.
Seygan plays her high school hoops for Mercer County and the Harrodsburg, KY native is also on the prestigious KENTUCKY PREMIER AAU basketball program. She averaged 16.2 ppg last year for Mercer County...with 4.3 assist and 3.7 steals.
Mercer County made it to the Kentucky High School Girls Basketball Final Four last year...falling to Franklin County. They ended up 31-6 on the season and the 12th region Lady Titans are one of the early favorites to contend for the 2017 title.
Words such as 'bullet passes', 'the hardest working player I have ever seen', 'the best PG in Kentucky girls high school hoops' and 'destined to do big things at Louisville' surround the rising junior.
Six months ago, she was pretty much a non-story for us here at CARDINAL COUPLE. The word we were getting was that she was solidly aligned with Matthew Mitchell and the UK WBB program. A couple of weeks ago, I got a tip that she was one that UofL was going to keep a close eye on down in Nashville and she wasn't "in UK's camp" anymore. Jeff Walz made that trip.
Her high school coach, Chris Souder adds:
Seygan plays the game the way it was intended to be played. She has a motor that never stops! She wants to be the best she can be so she is very coach-able. Great shooter, great passer, incredible competitor! Best player i have coached and also maybe the most humble kid I have coached as well! We are so excited to become part of the Louisville womens basketball family!
Go Cards! Thanks, Coach Souder
Yes, 2018 is a long way away.
Things do change occasionally. Recruits re-open recruitment and...who can accurately predict the thought-process of a sixteen-year-old in the first place? From what we've seen, though...Seygan should be getting a lot of national press and rankings her senior year, if not before. Visualizing her in a back-court with Grace Berger (2018 -- Louisville Sacred Heart) isn't that hard to see...at all. Seygan isn't top 60 in the ESPNW Class of 2018 rankings. Someone up there needs to get busy and evaluate her.
Larry Vaught knows a thing or two about high school basketball. His Vaught's View website is always a good read. He says:
This girl looks very special. In 2018-19...Arica Carter, Briahanna Jackson, Mariya Moore and Taylor Johnson will be graduated and gone. Asia Durr and Brianna Jones will be seniors. Yes, there are guards that will also be added to the 2017 and 2018 classes in all probability...but @Seygan_4 looks to be one that the Cardinal camp wanted to get lined up early.
Give her a "L's up" on Twitter, if you use that social media outlet.
Early interest and commits like this are usually a very good indicator of a firm commitment. It is especially pleasing to see an in-state player with quality skills verbal early. Nita Slaughter. Sara Hammond. Two players who had very remarkable careers at the 'Ville.
That's usually a very good thing, readers.
