No. 1 player Asia Durr visiting U of L again

Asia Durr, the nation's top-ranked high school girls basketball player in the Class of 2015, has already committed to the University of Louisville. Durr will be back in town this weekend when she makes an unofficial visit to campus.

Atlanta's St. Pius X Catholic High guard Asia Durr, considered the No. 1 prospect in the nation in the Class of 2015, committed to the University of Louisville last month.

The 5-foot-11 Durr said after she committed to the Cardinals that she "loved every minute" of her official visit to campus.

Now, she's getting a return visit.

Audrey Durr, the prospects mother, said she will leave Atlanta on Friday afternoon with her daughter and another sibling for an unofficial visit to Louisville.

"She's looking forward to it," the mother said.

Durr is ranked as the No. 1 prospect in the country by and picked the Cardinals over Maryland, Baylor, Duke and Notre Dame.

Durr helped Team USA to a gold medal in July 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 event.

As a junior, Durr averaged 24.4 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.5 steals a game while leading St. Pius X to their second consecutive Georgia State championship.

Durr was named Gatorade Player of the Year as a junior.

Durr is the highest-ranked recruit U of L has ever signed. Former All-American Angel McCoughtry was ranked outside the top 25 and only the No. 10 best forward in her class, while former All-American Shoni Schimmel and current guard Bria Smith were the highest-ranked players prior to Durr's commitment. Both were ranked No. 8 in their respective classes, while incoming freshman Myisha Hines-Allen was ranked No. 11.
