When they say it gets greater later, for Lauren Cox it really does.
The 6-4 frontcourt player from Flower Mound, Texas will follow in the steps of ’14 top recruit A’ja Wilson, who was deliberate throughout the recruiting process before deciding on South Carolina, which was near her home.
Lauren isn’t just a basketball standout. She also stars on the volleyball court, and she’s being recruited in that sport too. But again, Lauren is taking her time on that front too.
Cox, who averaged 18.9 points, 14.1 rebounds, and 4.8 blocked shots as a sophomore, has UConn among her top 20 schools, along with Notre Dame. She was in South Bend on Dec. 6 when the Huskies and Irish met in the Jimmy V Classic, though there were no plans yet to visit Storrs.
Being ranked #1 does have its perks.
