Samuelson enjoys her visit to UConn

Unlike Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, who knew she wanted to come to UConn by the time she played in the HoopHall Classic as a junior at Mater Dei High School, the recruiting process is going to take a little longer for current Mater Dei star Katie Lou Samuelson.

Samuelson followed the path of Mosqueda-Lewis by coming in early and taking an unofficial visit to UConn before playing the game in Springfield, Mass. She attended UConn's practice on Thursday and came away impressed.

"I thought it was good, it was pretty intense," Samuelson said. "Coach (Geno) Auriemma always has good stuff to say and it is great to see everything that is happening there. It was like a whole different level. If you watch any high school (practice) it is nothing compared to college practice, UConn, they were on top of everything."

Samuelson said she is down to seven schools - Stanford, Notre Dame, UConn, Duke, UCLA, Kentucky and Ohio State but don't expect a decision while her season is going on but she also doesn't plan on waiting until the early signing period starts in November to announce her college choice.

"I don't think I have a time frame," Samuelson said. "I think I am going to wait until after the season for sure and see how it is from there."

Despite not playing in the fourth quarter Samuelson had 34 points (on 13 of 23 shooting), five rebounds, two assists and two steals in an 86-37 win over Archbishop Williams of Braintree, Mass.
