Five-star recruit Lauren Ware is officially visiting the Arizona Wildcats this weekend, per a source.
The 6-foot-5 post player is the No. 30 player in the 2020 class, according to ESPN. Ware recently released her top five, which includes Arizona, UCLA, Tennessee, Texas and Minnesota.
If the Wildcats land her, she would be the second-highest ranked recruit the school has ever reeled in, only behind sophomore forward Cate Reese, who was the No. 12 player in 2018 and averaged 11.8 points and 6.8 rebounds as a freshman in 2018-19.
Ware is also a standout volleyball player and hopes to play both sports in college. Arizona is willing to let her, according to a source.
Arizona’s 2019 recruiting class did not include any American-born players, and so far its 2020 class only includes Turkish point guard Derin Erdogan.
Bismarck Century two-sport standout Lauren Ware tore the ACL in her left knee at a volleyball tournament in Sioux Falls this past weekend, likely sidelining her for her senior year with the Patriots.
Nebraska was not in the picture for Annika Stewart before the summer started.
But a lot changed in a small window of time.
Stewart began talking to Husker assistant coach Tom Goehle, and within weeks, the 6-foot-3 forward from Plymouth, Minnesota, was on the Nebraska campus for an official visit.
“It feels like I made the right decision, and even though it was really tough saying no to some schools, I just feel like Nebraska’s perfect and I feel very happy with where I’m at,” Stewart said.
The Huskers will be adding a versatile post player who isn’t afraid to step outside and shoot threes. In fact, she’s pretty good at knocking down the three-ball.
“I’ve just always liked to shoot,” Stewart said.
Stewart also was considering Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. In fact, Stewart’s sister Hannah just wrapped up a standout career at Iowa.

She's the real deal. The Gophers will be happy to have her.
Took official visit late May, see Posts #198 & #199.
Unfortunately, MN did NOT make the top 5.
Any word on Utsby?
Thanks for the update. Go Gophers!Her AAU team tweeted out her top/final 5 list of
Gophers, North Carolina, Pitt, Utah and Northwestern.
I would like to feel that the Gophers program and coaching staff could out recruit the teams on that list but who knows. I am also not sure if her end of july goal was just for the final list or not. If FiveOut is correct, it sounds like she is Minnesota's player to lose.
