Elite Camp in 2007 paying dividends

Sharon Versyp's first Elite Camp the summer of 2007 identified four players the staff would be paying extra attention to in the following years. Sam Ostarello and Dee Dee Williams shared MVP awards at the camp. Ostarello immediately accepted a Purdue offer, and Williams followed later with a commitment. Courtney Moses was the third target from that camp, and her recent commitment put the staff at three-of-four. The only top target from that camp to go elsewhere was Penn's Lily Svete, who committed to the University of Florida.

Houser softball

In the final Nebraska prep softball statistics, KK Houser placed in three categories among all Class A players. Houser had the third-best batting average (.489), and was first in runs (44) and stolen bases (80).

Big Ten Recruiting

Northwestern received a commitment from junior wing Mylan Woods of Shaker Heights Hathaway Brown High in Ohio. The 5'10 All-Ohio first team honoree is currently averaging 14.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.5 steals, 2.2 assists and 1.5 blocked shots. She is rated No. 54 by Blue Star, and chose Northwestern over offers from St. Louis and Michigan State.

Ohio State has added a commitment from 6'2 junior center Darryce Moore of Youngstown Boardman (OH). She averaged 14 points as a sophomore, and is rated No. 48 by Blue Star. Darryce is the sister of Ohio State football commit J.T. Moore.

Minnesota was her number one choice, so an offer quickly brought a commitment from Parkers Prairie junior Sari Noga. Noga, a 5-10 shooting guard, is averaging 30 points and 12 rebounds. She is rated No. 124 by All Star Girls Report.

Minnesota also added their first 2011 commitment. Kayla Hirt of Bemidji (MN) committed after a fall visit. The 6-2 forward averaged 14.6 ppg for the 20-7 Lumberjacks as a freshman. She is rated No. 90 by Blue Star. Hirt is the second 2011 player to verbal to the Big Ten.

Junior Jade Rogers, a 5"11 forward, committed to Iowa in October. Rogers was the leading scorer and rebounder in Iowa Class 4A as a sophomore, averaging 22.3 points and 13 rebounds a game for Cedar Rapids Kennedy. The first team all-stater is the step-daughter of former Iowa menís basketball player James Moses, and chose Iowa over an offer from Michigan State.
