PURDUE WOMENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Purdue chasing two elite Class of 2013 guards

Although heavily focused on post prospects for 2013, the Purdue staff could take a combo guard in the 2013 class. Still being recruited are 5'9 guard Kianna Holland of Seneca, SC, and 5'11 guard Rebekah Dahlman of Braham, MN.

Holland originally made an oral commitment to Ohio State last March, but reopened her recruitment in August after some soul searching. The crafty scorer with an increasingly more consistent perimeter shot is ranked No. 22 by ESPN Hoopgurlz. She has one of the quickest shooting motions Boilermaker fans have seen since Jodi Howell.

Holland comes in two spots ahead of the other guard target on Purdue 2013 list. At No. 24, Dahlman is an active defender who pours out points. She became the youngest player in Minnesota state history to surpass 3,000 points, and she did it by mid-December of her junior year. She is on track to destroy the girl's scoring mark previously set in 2009 by Tayler Hill, and also the boy's scoring mark of 4,086 points. She should also pass her older brother Isaiah's career mark within the next month.

Dahlman is from a basketball family that continues to put children into Division I programs. Both parents played, and her two oldest brothers, Isaiah and Noah, played for Michigan State and Wofford respectively. Rebekah's grandfather is John Kundla, who played at Minnesota and coached at his alma mater and later in the NBL (National Basketball League) for the Minnesota Lakers.

Both Dahlman and Holland have point and off-guard skills, making them the kind of versatile athletes Versyp and staff like to pursue. To date, Purdue has one commitment from the class of 2013 from forward Bridget Perry and five remaining scholarships to offer. A couple will likely go to low post players or power forwards, leaving the potential to add a guard to round out the class of 2013.
