University of Colorado women's basketball team will add a trio of recruits to next year's roster after receiving three letters on intent from two domestic and one international prospect on Wednesday.
6-foot-4 center Kara Richards
headlines a small, but solid class. The Graham, Texas native, who was rated No. 41 among high school prospects by All-Star Girls Report, was heavily sought after by Texas Tech
, Iowa State
, Oklahoma State
and Texas Christian before news of her intentions became public early last week.
Also signed this week is 6-2 forward Jackie McFarland of Derby, Kan. Jackie's sister Jessica plays for Kansas State and the younger McFarland chose CU over joining the Wildcats.
Finally, 6-2 Serbian guard Jasmina Ilic adds international flavor to CU's pre-season recruiting class. Ilic is rumored to be the youngest player ever to play for the Serbian national team.
