PURDUE WOMENS BASKETBALL RECRUITING:
Recruiting Update: Cherelle George Purdue's next guard?

    Purdue to receive visit from juco all-american

    Cherelle George, a 5'3 combo guard from Iowa Western Community College, will officially visit Purdue on April 22, and a decision on her future school will come after that visit. George is a scoring guard with point skills that would bring quickness and a scoring threat to the point position immediately.

    Purdue head coach Kristy Curry has travelled to see George on three occassions now, including a game where she saw George pour in 35 points. Also at the same game were coaches from East Carolina and Maryland, the later a school George has already visited.

    George may already know where she wants to go, as a comment two weeks ago from a Grand Forks newspaper columnist slipped out that she would play for Purdue next season. The Purdue Exponent this week asked her coach to verify the comment, and her coach simply said she had yet to visit Purdue. In the article, author Brad Schlossman wrote ...

    "They shut down the second-leading scorer in the country, Cherelle George, on Sunday. George, who will play at NCAA Division I Purdue next season, averages 28 points a game."

    Lake Region used a box-and-one to hold George to six points and end Iowa Western's season with a record of 26-5. George finished the season averaging 25.6 points while shooting 46.9-percent from the field, 30-percent from the perimeter and 78-percent from the freethrow line. She also averaged 4.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 4.3 steals per game as a junior college sophomore. The only weakness in her stat line is a slightly positive assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.07-to-1. Her scoring average was good for No. 2 among all Division I junior college players.

    As a junior college freshman, George averaged 15 points, four rebounds and four assists, breaking the school records for steals in a game (9) and steals in a season (108). She would break the school for career steals midway through her sophomore season.

    George played her high school ball at Newnan High in Georgia where she was known for leading her team in floor burns.

    Brina Pollack transfers

    Brina Pollack, Purdue freshman backup point guard, has decided to transfer to a school closer to home. Potential future playing time was an issue, and Purdue began actively recruiting a junior college point guard mid-season to help address point guard deficiencies. More on the transfer below from the Journal and Courier.

    Big Ten Recruiting

    Ohio State received a commitment from the class of 2006 from 6'1 forward Lesslee Mason-Cox of Cincinnati Winton Woods (OH). During the Nike Camp last summer when her parents were asked where she was thinking about going to school, the only answer from their lips was Ohio State. Both of her parents are Ohio State alums.

    Mason-Cox averaged 20.1 points, 11.8 rebounds, 4.1 steals, two assists and two blocks per game as a junior for 20-3 Winton Woods, a team that also features 6'2 Myia McCurdy, a 2006 forward the Boilers are keeping an eye on.
