UVA just picked up a verbal from Sydney Umeri for the class of 2013. Umeri is rated as the #20 recruit by Hoopsgurlz and at 6-1 provides some size to the class. The Hoos beat out Duke, Stanford and Harvard for her commitment, which provides a pretty strong indication that she takes her academics seriously.
This was a great pick-up for UVA. One of the write-ups on her said she was a Karl Malone-like player. Looks like she can be a banger but is also athletic and has good offensive moves. With the two four-star guard commits already in 2013, this class is shaping up nicely.
