Jennifer Hamson, from Pleasant Valley, Utah, has had a home visit from U of L coach Jeff Walz and plans to visit the Louisville campus in the near future. There’s stiff competition, however, from universities within her home state, including Brigham Young and Utah. Oklahoma is also on her itinerary for a campus visit.
Also a gymnast, she wants to play both basketball and volleyball at the collegiate level. Which means, of course, that she’ll be interested in how Gwen Rucker is faring at U of L. Gwen started most basketball games last season but is redshirting this season and focusing on volleyball this year.
One would hope her potential teammates, the near capacity crowds for volleyball at Cardinal Arena and the construction of the new downtown basketball arena make a favorable impression during her Louisville visit.[/stextbox]
