VCU lands a top-notch recruit in Daisy

Daisy sounds like a doozy for VCU.
Adaesa "Daisy" Alaeze, who averaged 15 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.8 steals for Roland Park (Baltimore) High, made a verbal commitment to attend VCU. Roland Park plays in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. Alaeze has 969 career points.
"I really fit into the program and it has the rural area that I like," Alaeze told The Baltimore Sun. "I enjoy the girls. They were really welcoming when I was down there and the area’s just a perfect fit for me."

According to the Sun, Alaeze narrowed her list of about seven offers to VCU, Towson and James Madison. (We don't think of Richmond as rural, but maybe compared to Baltimore.....) Alaeze is considered one of the top athletes on the East Coast thanks to her standout basketball, track and soccer career.

The Rams also got a verbal commitment from Jenice Winter, a 5-10 forward from South Shore High in New York.

Alaeze wants to be a doctor (her other choices were reportedly law or engineering). In addition to being smart, she sounds like a lot of fun. Check out this profile on 659Hoops. We also like Gucci, Trey Songz, Music Soulchild,TI, Keri Hilson, Rick Ross, Yo Gotti and Wiz Khalifa!
