Louisville women's hoops adds late signee

Jeff Walz and the Louisville women's basketball program have added another recruit for next season. InsideTheVille.com has the scoop on the Cardinals new junior college signee.

Kenyatta Gill, one of the nation's top junior college players, signed a letter of intent with Louisville last weekend, according to Pensacola (FL) JC head coach Chanda Rigby.

"Kenyatta is a versatile player in that she shoots with the best of great shooting guards and rebounds with the best of aggressive post players," Rigby told InsideTheVille.com. "I believe that she will play an important role in helping to continue the success that Louisville is enjoying."

Gill is a 6-foot-1 small forward from Mobile. She'll help fill the void left by Angel McCoughtry and Candyce Bingham at forward. Gill averaged 13.8 points and 6.4 rebounds as a sophomore last season.

"Louisville has one of the best coaching staffs in the nation, and we are proud that Kenyatta will have the opportunity to become a part of the University of Louisville experience," said Rigby.

The Cardinals have four other 2009 signees: 6-3 PF Ashley Rainey, 5-11 SG Nikki Burton, 6-1 SF Asia Taylor and 5-7 PG Rachel Story. Taylor is ranked the No. 17 prospect nationally by All-Star Girls Report; Burton is No. 38; Story No. 75 and Rainey No. 109.

Louisville could also add junior college transfers Danielle Adams and LaToya Johnson from Jefferson, Mo. Adams is considered the nation's top junior college prospect. She made an official visit to Louisville last week and has a visit scheduled to Texas A&M this coming weekend.
