The University of New Mexico women’s basketball coaching staff went an impressive 2-for-2 over the weekend.
Head coach Mike Bradbury picked up commitments from a pair of prized recruits Sunday. Guards Corina Carter and Andriana Avent both announced their decisions via Twitter after visiting Albuquerque with their families over the weekend.
Carter is a 5-foot-6 point guard from San Antonio’s Judson High School. The left-hander averaged 14.4 points last season and is listed as the No. 100 overall recruit nationally by espnw.com.
Carter was being recruited by numerous power conference schools and had official visits planned to Kentucky and Virginia in the coming weeks. She ended the process by posting a video highlight clip on Twitter that ended with the word “Committed,” followed by the UNM shield.
Prospect Nation lists Carter as its No. 54 overall player for the 2019 recruiting class, while Avent is listed at No. 111.
Avent is a 5-10 shooting guard from Sacramento High School, who plays AAU ball for Cal Sparks. Avent announced her commitment Sunday night in a post thanking family, friends, teammates and the college coaches who recruited her.
“After a long process and serious thought I’m so excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at the University of New Mexico,” Avent posted.
Carter and Avent join Autumn Watts, a 6-1 forward from Highlands Ranch, Colo., on UNM’s list of commitments for 2019. Bradbury confirmed that his program is recruiting all three players but NCAA rules prohibit coaches from otherwise commenting on unsigned players.
