Sherrone Vails Verbals To Lady Cards

The man knows how to recruit.

Still another big-time verbal for the University of Louisville women’s basketball team.

Sherrone Vails, a 6-foot-4 player from Odeton, Md., became the fourth top recruit to give her word to coach Jeff Walz to play for the Lady Cards.

ESPN: “She has incredible mobility for her size and gets up and down the floor with the guards. When she does get the ball in scoring position she’s able to finish and presents a real threat. Lots of potential will have them lining up at her door.”

She picked U of L over Duke, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Purdue, Villanova and Wake Forest.

Here’s a link to a great video, with Vails in the lead role:

    Walz’s years as assistant coach and head recruiter for Maryland continue to pay off. Vails is the pick of this 2010 class so far and her impact on the Cards inside game will be felt the minute she walks on the court next year. Surprising that Maryland wasn’t among her final choices since she was in their back yard, but happy to have her.

    She averaged 13.5 points a game in her junior year and Arundel and was named to the 2nd team All D.C. area all starts. She also played on the same team with 6’3″ forward Simone Egwu last year, who is a freshman at Virginia this year and was the leading scorer last season for Arundel.
