Memphis SF Nina Davis commits to the Baylor Lady Bears

Another nationally-ranked recruit will be joining Kim Mulkey's burgeoning dynasty in Waco, Texas.

For those unfamiliar with the world of Baylor WBB recruiting, and that should be everyone because of what I'm about to say, information is sparse at best. In that respect, Kim Mulkey runs a program the KGB would have been proud of. It's almost impossible to get anyone to talk about anything, including visits, targets, potential commitments, and even commitments once they do actually happen. ESPN doesn't exactly say we don't have any on their page, they just don't know if we do have any.

That's why today's news is so unique in the world of Lady Bear recruiting. Just a few minutes ago, Nina Davis, a 6-1 SF from Memphis, Tennessee and one of the best players in the 2013 class, committed to Baylor in a ceremony at her high school. She chose Baylor over both hometown school Memphis University and the much-closer-than-Waco Vanderbilt. Her commitment marks the second high-profile player from the Memphis area to choose Baylor in recent weeks after 2014 stud Leron Black spurned the Tigers for a Baylor offer.

Because WBB recruiting is not covered in near as much detail as MBB, I don't have much to share about Davis. I got the height listed above from her profile at ESPN, but I have reason to believe she may be closer to 6-0 than 6-1. We'll see. ESPN ranks her #52 in the 2013 recruiting class and #7 at her position nationally. I can tell you that, according to her high school page, she was a Gatorade Player of the Year nominee in her junior season as well as a finalist for Tennessee's "Miss Basketball" award and a two-time "Best of Preps" winner from Commercial Appeal, whatever that is. I expect she may win another one of those this year.

If you want to follow Ms. Davis on twitter, her username is @NinaBena_13. I'll admit I had an inkling before her announcement which way she might go because she retweeted something I said about that announcement.
