Me personally, I'd rather go to the up and coming program in order to help push that program over the top. There is nothing new to be gained by going to the established championship team.
Pros and Cons with both.. If her life-long goal is to win a national title, then U -Conn will probably be her safest bet.... Hope she comes here, but I couldn't blame her if she went up north.

I hope it does the opposite and have her realize that she could be part of history as an integral part of the women's march back to the NCAA tourney.

Now in reality, who knows what is going to happen besides the recruit? We could flip a coin or throw darts at a dart board and it would mean the same as anything said before the player signs.

Before Marcus Lattimore signed here, there were members saying he was thinking about going to Auburn. Clowney was going to flip to Clemson or Alabama. Jeffery was a lock for Southern California. Drew Barker was going to surprise everyone and don the garnet and black.

If you want to post that you heard from a source that she is going somewhere else, that is fine. Expect that people here will question who you heard it from and why you believe it to be true.

It should not fill you with such displeasure if you know in your heart that what you said is 100% a sure thing and correct.

Just sit back with your arms folded and a shit-eating grin on your face at all the naysayers once your fact comes to fruition.

I understand what you're saying and you make some good points. All I did was pass along some info I was told. Didn't think it be this big of a deal. Had I simply posted, USC or Gamecock, I'm guessing that wouldn't have been a douchebag comment. Some very fragile people on this board. Shit eating grin is on now and will be a mile wide if she does in fact, choose Uconn. Then it'll hit me we missed getting the #1 recruit in the country and the grin will be gone.

There's always some guy who pulls the trigger on a false prediction for a sick thrill. Aja to UCONN is a lie, either perpetrated by the OP or his "source" in order to fill the interwebs with a teensy weensy bit of his neuroses. Don't believe it, or his OBVIOUS deflections back at you for attacking his integrity. BS!

This will be a long 2 weeks until A'ja decides. There are good points for all 4 of her finalists. Hopefully, A'ja will see that Dawn Staley is building the next dynasty in women's basketball.

A'ja wasn't able to make any of her dunks but she was pretty close a couple times.

BTW Alshon was one of the judges and DJ Swagg was also in the audience.

I know a lot of families and I would be hard pressed to predict what anyone would do based on information from one of their family members. That's just plain dumb.

Today's TBS VIP A'ja recruiting news:

Speaking to people she interacted with at McD's game, TBS feels Gamecocks still team to beat though not a lock at this time. One person they spoke with feels UNC and UTenn are biggest challengers with UNC posing biggest threat.

9 days to go................

From article just posted on GG.

Quote:
As for the idea that the team advancing the furthest in the NCAA tournament will win her services, that’s not true, which comes as a relief to the Tar Heels, Lady Volunteers and Gamecocks. UConn is going for its ninth national title on Tuesday against the Fighting Irish.

“No, I don’t pay too much attention to who wins,” Wilson laughed. “I’ll be cheering for them because I played with three of them this summer (Morgan Tuck, Moriah Jefferson and AP Player of the Year Breanna Stewart). They’re a great group of girls.”

Default Re: A'ja Wilson

Frankly, all that needs to be noted about A'ja's choice of school has pretty much been said.

For some, especially our young, the siren call of faraway places and the allure of bright lights is difficult- sometimes impossible- to deny. A'ja, we South Carolinians all know, much like Darla, it's your destiny to be a prodigal. We only ask that you delay your leaving until you're fully grown as a person.

Why? Many think it's because we selfishly want you to be a cornerstone of our budding dynasty in WBB, but for those of us who really care about your well-being, that's not it at all.

IMO someday soon USC will win it all with or without you. But should you become one of our cornerstones, unwittingly we'll become yours, and where you're headed, you'll need a good one to help guide you on your journey thru life.

If you decide a group of strangers somewhere else will give you a better foundation to live the rest of your life, that's where you should go. But if you want the good people of SC to be your guiding light, I'll help lead your cheering section next fall.

The unusual thing about cornerstones is that they are open on two sides. If you become one of ours and we become yours, no matter where you are or how hectic life becomes, you have but to access the memory banks of your mind and for a few minutes slip thru the door to that other side and visit friends, family, and the simple beauty of the Horseshoe & the green grass of home.
