PLAYER BIO

You can draw upon all the comparisons you like, but it comes down to the simple fact that Katie Gearlds is good. Beech Grove won the lottery when the then star junior high and AAU player matriculated to high school, and here soon one lucky university will feel the same way. Gearlds is an athlete capable of playing multiple positions, strong enough to take high school players into the post and good enough with the ball to run the whole show at point. At 6'1 with the ability to create her own shot, she would make a great small forward too. Whatever the position, Gearlds attacks with the ball and makes defenders work. By the way, she's a pretty good golfer too.

As a junior, Gearlds finished as the state's No. 2 scorer with an average of 26.5 points per game. Beech Grove finished ranked 8th in Class 3A with a record of 17-5, and was beaten by No. 2 Brebeuf in Sectionals. While Katie's scoring average dipped ever so slightly, she increased her rebounding average from last year to 10 rebounds per game, up from 9.3. Gearlds ended the junior season already owning the school's career scoring mark at 1,647 points. She also posted career marks in rebounds (570), assists (408), steals (336) and blocks (169).

As a sophomore, Gearlds finished as the state's No. 2 scorer with an average of 27.0 points per game. Her rebound average increased to 9.3 per game, while her assist and steal averages increased to 7.0 and 6.0 respectively. All-State honors began mixing with all-american honors both from her high school efforts and from the summer circuit. She ended the year with an outstanding showing against the nation's elite at the Nike All-American Camp.

As a freshman, Gearlds finished as the state's No. 9 scorer with an average of 23.7 points per game. She also averaged 7.5 rebounds and 6.6 assists for a 18-4 team. She had a season-high of 43 points against Whiteland just short of a month of playing her first high school game. For her effort, she was named second team all-state by the Associated Press.

Katie Gearlds verballed to Purdue on January 27, 2002. She will not be able to officially sign with Purdue until November of 2002.

    11-11-02...Going into her senior season as the top returning scorer in the state of Indiana, Katie carries an array of numbers with her most high schoolers end their senior seasons with. Through her junior season, Katie has averaged 25.7 points (1647 career), 8.9 rebounds (570 career), 5.3 steals (336 career) and 6.4 assists (408 career). Her shooting percentage form the field has remained rather consistent year-by-year, averaging 52-percent. Her career free throw percentage is 85-percent. The Beech Grove schedule has steadily grown more competitive, and the 2002-03 season looks to continue that trend. Beech Grove has a December meeting with defending 4A state champion Terre Haute South, then begins January with a visit from Mooresville, a 20-4 team from 2002-02. The final game of the season is against perennial power, although depleted, Cathedral. Sectionals should again be competitive this year with sectional foes Brebeuf and New Palestine already getting postseason votes as top 3A squads. Beech Grove has been ranked as the No. 7 team in Class 3A by Hoosier Basketball Magazine.

    7-21-02...Denise McClanahan's Indiana's Finest Black Cats 17-under team has won the national championship at AAU Nationals in Auburn Hills, MI. Indiana's Finest defeated West Texas Hawks 71-62 in the first game at noon to take the title. Katie Gearlds was named the 2002 AAU Nationals Tournament MVP, and was joined on the All-American roster by fellow Purdue recruit Sharika Webb. Gearlds scored 24 points in the final game, followed by Webb's 19.

    7-20-02...Indiana's Finest 17-under team has two shots at the national championship today. Since they are the only remaining undefeated team in the double-elimination tournament, they will play for the national championship today at noon against the winner of the loser's bracket, West Texas Hawks. A loss at noon will set up a rematch at 4:00pm with the Hawks. The Hawks were sent to the losers bracket by North Tartan on Wednesday, as North Tartan rolled to a 95-76 victory. The Finest 17s sent North Tartan to the losers bracket on Friday, 65-64. Waiting for North Tartan in the finals of the losers bracket Friday night was the Hawks, who came back to beat North Tartan, 83-72.

    7-18-02...The Final Four is set for the 17-under AAU Nationals, and Indiana's Finest AAU is still alive. The Finest defeated the Alabama Roadrunners Tuesday evening, 76-67. They followed it up with a decisive 83-59 win over Massachusetts Comets Wednesday afternoon. The team now faces the Houston Hotshots on Thursday at 5:00pm for a shot at the title. In the other bracket, North Tartan takes on Tennessee Elite. For info on two of the other teams still alive, visit the links below. North Tartan might ring a bell, as they boast three Division I players, two of which were looked at closely by Purdue -- Liz Podominick and Megan Ronhovde. The tournament is actually double-elimination, so to win it all three more wins are needed.

    7-15-02...Indiana's Finest AAU is following up an undefeated run in the AAU state tournament with an undefeated run so far in pool play at Nationals, held this week in Auburn Hills, Michigan. The Finest opened up pool play on Saturday with a 70-55 win over the Austin Lady Knights and a 68-35 win over the Michigan Shock. Sunday brought them up against DBL Phoenix, a team they beat 86-64. As a top seed in the tournament, they will face the 3rd place team in pool C, Fredrick Madness (MD) at 1:00pm on Monday.

    6-17-02...Katie Gearlds and the North squad at the 2002 USA Women's Youth Development Festival have gone undefeated and won the championship. Over the five-game series, Katie led her team in minutes per game with 24.6. Katie also finished first in freethrow percentage (.875) and assists-to-turnovers (1.7-to-1); second in three-point percentage (.357), total assists (10) and steals (10); third in rebounds per game (4.0); fourth in scoring (10.0); sixth in field goal percentage (.413); and ninth out of 12 players in total turnovers (6). Defensively, the North held their opponents to 76.4 points per game and 35-percent shooting from the floor.

    6-16-02...Some interesting comments in an interview with Katie Gearlds at the USA Women's Youth Development Festival. When asked if Katie is trying to sway some of her teammates to come to Purdue, she replied, "There are four or five girls on the North squad that I know Purdue is pretty hard after. I'm just trying to throw them some good comments about Purdue here and there. You know, ‘I'll pass you the ball at Purdue too!' Just see if they like playing with me." And, when asked if she is happy her college choice is out of the way, she said, "Yes. I really wanted to get it out of the way and I knew that Purdue is where I really wanted to go. The coaching staff there is like no other coaching staff that I talked to. I mean, no disrespect to any other school, but the Purdue coaches were awesome. Plus, it is close to home and I just think it is perfect for me."

    06-07-02...To the disappointment of many local Lafayette Purdue fans, Katie Gearlds will not be taking part in the junior all-star scrimmage in Mackey Arena next Wednesday, June 12th. Instead, Katie will be showcasing her skills on the national level as she takes part in the 2002 USA Women's Youth Development Festival in Colorado Springs. The festival starts June 13th. Forty-eight of the nation's top high school players have been chosen to play on one of four teams that will play each other in a five-game tournament. We've mentioned before that Katie's early commitment has placed her in a good position to bring other players onboard. The festival has made that much easier, as a handful of known Purdue targets will be on her team during the festival. Katie's team, the North squad, includes 6'6 center Alison Bales of Beavercreek (OH), 5'6 guard Deonna Davis of Cincinnati (OH), 5'10 guard Brandie Hoskins of Chaminade-Julienne (OH), 6'3 forward Brittany Hunter of Columbus Brookhaven (OH), 5'8 guard Britney Jordan of Peoria Woodruff (IL), 6'3 center Chloe Kerr of Bolingbrook (IL), 6'2 forward Erin Lawless of Chicago Fenwick (IL), 5'11 forward Victoria Lucas-Perry of Powers Catholic (MI), 6'3 forward Elise Morrison of Country Day (MI), 5'9 guard Kelly Roysland of Fossum (MN), and 6'2 center Siedah Williams of Cleveland Regina (OH). Many of those names we've heard mentioned here before, and Katie will be able to provide some scouting to the Purdue coaches on some of the girls under consideration. We'll be posting updates on Katie's progress as the festival gets underway next week.

Now as a sophomore, she is averaging 18.4 points, shooting 103-of-249 (.410) from the floor and 22-of-45 (.490) from the perimeter. She also adds 9.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.0 steals per game.

    01-23-02...The McDonald's Girls Prep Classic in Chicago wrapped up on Monday with two great games. No. 1 Fenwick beat the No. 1 team in Ohio, Beavercreek, 52-49. The win snapped Beavercreek's 41-game winning streak. For Fenwick, 6'2 junior Erin Lawless scored 25 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. For Beavercreek, 6'6 junior center Alison Bales had 27 points. Bales was recently seen in Mackey Arena on an unoffical visit for the Ohio State game, while Lawless, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, has an offer on the table from Purdue.

This may have been the first game Gearlds has attended in Mackey this season, after attending many last season. Beech Grove's schedule has conflicted with all but two of Purdue's home games to date, but most of the Big Ten Conference home games are free for her to attend. Gearlds could be Purdue's best recruiter once she makes up her mind whether the Boilers are a good fit.

    2-20-01...I had a chance to talk with Denise McClanahan, 16-under AAU coach for the Indiana Finest program. McClanahan has both Sharika Webb and Katie Gearlds on her summer squad, so she was the perfect person to give us some scouting on the two players. [MrHoops]

    2-18-01...Just last week it was Sharika Webb's Cathedral squad bouncing Katie Gearlds' Beech Grove from the 2001 IHSAA tournament. On Sunday, both players were in attendance to see the Purdue women win another Big Ten Basketball Championship.

Gearlds also added nine rebounds and five assists.

    2-6-01...Four top high school players unofficially visited for the Michigan game in Mackey on Sunday.

    SCOUTING REPORTS

    Capri Small at the College Exposure Shootout..."Katie stood out all day. One reason was because she is equally adept at penetrating, pulling up to hit three-point shots, or finding an open teammate. The other reason was her height - at over six feet (unfortunately, this information was not included on the roster sheets made available), she towered over the other perimeter players. The most impressive parts of her game this day were her interior defense and quick hands. She is a complete player whose style is extremely reminiscent of Katie Douglas’s." (September 19, 2001)

    Steve Valiant at the 2001 Nike Camp..."If Cherrise Graham was said to be a Ukari Figgs clone, then Katie Gearlds could be seen as a Katie Douglas clone as she is a tall, versatile guard/forward type. Gearlds played as complete a team game as is possible at a camp designed to showcase individual talent and razzle dazzle. She rebounded well with taller players, played good defense against shorter guards, could see the floor well and had some excellent passes. Katie never forced a shot and knocked down almost everything. Katie and Willnett Crockett played on the same team together and looked good. One of the better players in camp." (July 21, 2001)
