Cavaliers land major recruiting target

Debbie Ryan and her staff sure does know how to recruit. A year ago, they bagged the nation's No. 5 incoming class according to ESPN. And on Thursday, the Cavaliers secured a verbal commitment from New York City guard Bria Smith, the No. 8 player in the country for the class of 2011.

And the Cavaliers may not be done yet. Smith was a member of the United States' U17 team that recently won the gold medal at the FIBA World Championships in France. One of Smith's teammates on that squad was Elizabeth Williams, the Princess Anne High star, the No. 1-ranked player in the 2011 class and a major Virginia recruiting target.

Could landing Smith help the Cavaliers in their pursuit of Williams? Who knows? And from everything we know and have heard about Williams, this is a young lady who will definitely make up her own mind.

But it certainly can't hurt.
