Bria Smith chooses Louisville

Former Virginia signee Bria Smith closed out her second go-round in the recruiting game Wednesday by choosing Louisville. A McDonald's All-American, Smith obtained her release from the Cavaliers after Debbie Ryan stepped down. While she maintains she continued to consider Virginia during her re-recruitment, she told ESPN that she simply couldn't see herself at Virginia with Ryan.

"They were still a choice but if it was meant to be, it would have happened last time," Smith said of Virginia. "I am a believer that things happen for a purpose and I just really wanted to play for Coach Ryan. When she left, it was like all my feelings about playing for Virginia left as well."
