Well you don't see this every day: Kara Lawson added a promising late commit when Shayeann Day-Wilson chose Duke.
You don’t get Top 50 recruits in August very often.
She originally committed to Syracuse but like just about everyone else bailed after the problems surfaced with former coach Quentin Hillsman, who has resigned.
Eighteen players or recruits have opted out since February.
According to the Duke Chronicle, the 5-5 Day-Wilson, a native of Canada, “Day-Wilson is an offense-minded point guard with an advanced handle, and can score comfortably both downhill and pulling up from outside. She sees the court well too, though the knock on her is that she can be a bit wild—particularly on the defensive side.“
Lawson played for the late Pat Head Summit, who would certainly know how to teach a young player discretion. We’re guessing Lawson will too.
We only got a brief glimpse of her style last season due to Covid so we’ll know more about everything by the time ACC play gets going. Certainly she has a solid roster now, having worked the transfer market like a much more experienced coach.
