Indiana head coach Curt Miller has enjoyed tremendous success with his system, and now Miller has three commitments from the Class of 2014 who fit his style of play perfectly. Tyra Buss is a 5-7 point guard who is listed as the No. 123 recruit in the class according to All Star Girls Report; Amanda Cahill is a 6-1 forward who is at No. 166 on ASGR’s list; and Jessica Walter is a 5-10 guard.
“I think all of these players will fit really well into Curt Miller’s system,” said ASGR analyst Bret McCormick. “They are intelligent, fundamentally sound players who can shoot the basketball.”
Buss, who hails from Mount Carmel, Ill., is a scoring machine. Earlier this year, she became the first Illinois prep player (girls or boys) to cross the 3,000-point plateau in only three varsity seasons.
“Tyra is a phenomenal scorer,” noted McCormick. “She can shoot very well, and she uses her intelligence to get her shots.”
Cahill plays for her father, John, at Clyde High School in Ohio.
“She plays like the daughter of a coach,” McCormick said. “She is just a very smart player, and she can shoot the ball all the way out to the three-point arc.”
Walter is currently playing at Midland High School in Michigan.
“I know this sounds a little like a broken record, but Jessica will fit their system very, very well,” McCormick said. “She understands the game, and she can shoot the three-pointer well.”
