Lindsay Whalen has made inroads with Minnesota recruits ahead of Wednesday's signing day.
It's signing day:
Katie Borowicz has another season to go at Roseau High School. This will be her fourth as the starting point guard on Roseau’s girls’ basketball team, her sixth with the varsity. Expectations up near the Canadian border are high.
But, in some ways, Borowicz already feels like a Gopher.
Borowicz is expected to sign a national letter of intent Wednesday to play for Lindsay Whalen at the University of Minnesota next season. She should be part of a three-person class that includes Watertown-Mayer wing Maggie Czinano and Alanna Micheaux, a physical, 6-2 power forward at Wayne (Mich.) Memorial High School.
Even up in Roseau, with her senior season about to start, Borowicz is keeping track of the Gophers. She fell in love with the staff and the team during her official visit late last winter, before the coronavirus pandemic hit. Since the team started practicing this fall the Gophers coaches have been sending out practice film and weekly updates that have Borowicz eager to get to campus.
