No. 1 prospect in nation visiting U of L

University of Louisville women's basketball coach Jeff Walz is hosting the No. 1 prospect in the country - Asia Durr - this weekend. Cardinal Authority has confirmed the visit.

Asia Durr, the top-ranked girls' basketball player in the Class of 2015, is on her official visit to the University of Louisville.

Durr's father, Terry, confirmed the family is on campus to Cardinal Authority on Friday afternoon. The family arrived on Friday morning and began the official visit.

The 5-foot-10 Durr, who is a point guard from Douglasville, Ga., is also still looking at Notre Dame, Baylor, Duke and Maryland.

Durr helped Team USA to a gold medal last month in the U17 World Championships in the Czech Republic. She had 17 points in the final and averaged 13.4 points a game in the tournament.

Terry Durr said earlier this month that U of L has been recruiting her for a while, noting the Cardinals' staff have "done a great job," in the process.

"We like what coach (Jeff) Walz has built," Terry Durr said. "He's put them on the map.

"They play in front of a lot of people and they play in a great conference. Asia's goal is to get to college and win a championship and she feels like she can be the missing piece at Louisville and help them win a title."
