Louisville women land second commit of day

The University of Louisville women's basketball staff landed a second commitment of the day on Wednesday, picking up a verbal from Philadelphia post player Bionca Dunham. She's the fourth commitment in the Class of 2016 for the Cardinals.

University of Louisville women's basketball coach Jeff Walz is at it again.

For the second time in two hours, Walz and his staff landed a verbal commitment. Philadelphia Imhotep Charter School post player Bionca Dunham committed to the Cardinals after a weekend official visit.

A 6-foot-4 post player who is under the radar a bit nationally, Dunham picked the Cardinals over Georgia and a host of other schools. She is currently unranked but has seen her stock soar since the end of the summer.

"We had a wonderful time," her father Jason Dunham said after the visit. "The coaches were great and it's a very nice place. We have some other places that we anticipate (visiting) but nothing set yet."

Dunham has helped Imhotep to back-to-back Philadelphia City titles. She didn't play a lot of AAU ball but ended up garnering some attention late this summer playing with New Heights out of New York.

"She's been under the radar," Jason Dunham said. "But it's kind of like that for women's basketball here. There's not a ton of attention. She was under the radar but not with the American (Athletic Conference) teams. They were hoping to keep her under the radar.

"She's only played basketball for three years, so it's still new to her. She has really improved."

Louisville now has four commitments in the '16 class: Dunham, forward Kylee Shook, guard Sydney Zambrotta and wing Jazmine Jones, who committed earlier in the day.

The Cardinals are still after another post player to fill out the class.
