Star recruit picks Virginia

Highly coveted forward Sydney Umeri, a Top-20 recruit for the Class of 2013 (ESPN) and a member of the 2011 USA Basketball U16 National Team, announced on Twitter today that she has verbally committed to Virginia.

The 6-2 Umeri, an Atlanta native and a rising senior at the Lovett School, is the most acclaimed recruit in Cavaliers coach Joanne Boyle's year-long tenure - and first non-guard. She's also one of the brightest, and a look at her college choices indicates she's just as serious about books as she is about ball. At one point this year she was seriously considering Stanford. Umeri also visited Vanderbilt during spring break and reported chose Virginia over Harvard.

Barring a change of heart between now and the November signing period, Umeri will join Miami combo guard Tiffany Suarez and Forest Park High star Breyana Mason in Virginia's Class of 2013.
