    Name doesn't ring a bell. Year and school? It's been awhile since I was at Navy!

    She plays for Army. I think she is a senior now. Probably 5' 6" but, IMHO, a legit D1 player.

    I have never discussed my class year on the forum, but let's just say when I played at Navy she was very very young! I try to be a little anonymous. I have seen her play then. Been to the Army Navy game the last few years. Looked up her name and yes she is a great player. The Navy teams I played on all of us had multiple D1 offers. I would say the majority of the women's players at Navy and Army are legit D1 players.

    I agree and realize that my statement could be viewed as disrespectful of their abilities which was not my intention, and apologize.

    Didn't take it like that at all, no worries. I think there is sort of a general feeling from the big sports; football and men's basketball that a lot of the athletes were not highly recruited at the D1 level. That is true in many ways as it is more publicized in the media. I think it takes a very unique woman to go to a SA. So I think the female athletes are slightly different than the men's in some ways.

    Not always the case, but many times the women I knew were very smart, very driven, and looking for something different than the normal college experience. The SA provide that.
