The Virginia women’s basketball program received some encouraging news this week when guard Bria Smith verbally committed to the Hoos, according to ESPN HoopGurlz. Interestingly, on its ESPN HoopGurlz profile page for Smith, it doesn’t list UVa as one of the top five contenders to land the high profile recruit. In the end though, the Cavaliers beat out the likes of Georgia, Louisville, UConn, and Notre Dame.
Here’s part of the HoopGurlz evaluation of Smith’s game from an April Boo Williams event:
“She isn’t your prototypical shooting guard in terms of size but she embodies the position in every other way. … There are very few guards who possess her knack for scoring in traffic and of those guards she is the best at her trade.”
Smith is ranked No. 1 at her position and No. 3 overall in the ESPNU 100 rankings.
