Walk on?

Source Reports Hudson Valley Standout Williams May Join Fiacco at Lafayette

A first-hand source has reported Hudson Valley standout Beatriz Williams (Byram Hills) is being recruited by Lafayette. If she were to attend the program there, two Hudson Valley standouts would be combined on the court for the Leopards. Danielle Fiacco (North Salem) completed a successful freshman season at Lafayette, averaging 6.6 PPG and 8.0 RPG. Williams would join highly touted guard recruit Maggie Peabody (Sacred Heart Academy, Louisville, KY) in the back court. Click here for the official Leopards site to stay posted.////

Beatriz is the daughter of my 2nd favorite Yankee center fielder of all time.  Smile

You mean we might see Bernie Williams in KSC?

Why would she be a walk on?  She is Class of 2012 and being recruited.

c2 - I believe Coach N has 3 scholarship verbals.  Beatriz dad earned over $12 mil for at least 5 years (edit - 7 yrs) and played several more for less $.   I'm guessing recruited walk-on.

No way! That's cool... but it seems our recruiting is really striving for quality players.

It might not matter what Dad earned.  Beatriz obviously is a quality player in her own right.  She might want to earn her own scholarship, even if Dad can afford the tuition.  

A Division I scholarship is a matter of personal pride to a teenager, and if Beatriz is anything like her Dad, she intelligent, highly skilled and very motivated.  I would imagine that she's exactly the kind of young lady we would love to have on College Hill.

Let's hope we can work something out.

True. Or maybe she and her family take pride in being able to say, no thanks, I know I've earned it, but give it to someone who needs it.  Or maybe she wasn't offered a scholarship but really likes LC, Coach Nolan and the players.  This is a unique situation and a chance to get a quality player at no cost.

Anybody know if recruited walk-ons "sign" on signing day?  If so we may have an answer in a few weeks.

Technically they don't.  However, many high schools treat any recruited athlete with the same pomp and circumstance as one that does sign a NLI, so there may be a press release from her high school anyway.

Besides, I don't care how much money you have, "free" is still your favorite price.
