I caught up 6-foot-2 Class of 2011 wing Taylor Greenfield out of Ballard High located in Huxley, Iowa yesterday. Greenfield - who is currently the #13 ranked player in the JumpOffPlus.com rankings - has several scholarship offers already including her most recent pickup, Stanford. The Cardinal have jumped in the mix along with Duke, Kansas, Iowa State, Michigan State and Missouri State for the lang, rangy wing player. Greenfield showed well when I saw her back in May at the Regional Skills Academy in Indianapolis and was solid again out in Colorado for the USA Basketball U16 Trials.
Guess we will wait to see if she applies to Stanford, which Hoop Gurlz usually catches.
“I’m just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard,” Eustachy joked. “If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, he’ll be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.”
Top talent girls basketball players are different than top talent mens basketball players IMO. What I mean by that is a top 10 mens bball player can go to any team in the country. Academics don't matter, because they are going to the NBA.
Girls basketball is different. The WNBA pay isn't that great and there are less spots available because there are less teams. Getting a good education is more important. Thus I think Stanford is tough for ISU to beat out for her.
