Bullitt East’s Lindsey Duvall has committed to play for Jeff Walz at the University of Louisville, her father confirmed to The Courier-Journal.
Her commitment to UofL comes less than three months after removing her pledge to play for Matthew Mitchell at the University of Kentucky. Duvall was one of the casualties of the mass exodus surrounding Mitchell’s program this spring.
Ahead of her junior season, Duvall was ranked as the third-best point guard in the nation, the No. 10 player overall by ESPN.com. Sidelined with a tumor on her knee, Duvall made a miraculous recovery to return to the court before the season came to a close. As a senior, she will be a Miss Basketball favorite.
Losing players in Mitchell’s program obviously hurts, but their eventual destinations pour salt on the open wound. Batouly Camara transferred to play for Geno Auriemma at UConn, Alexis Jennings joined SEC-rival South Carolina and now the best recruit from the Commonwealth will play for Kentucky’s instate foe.
