Fernandez signs five-star recruit
After back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances, USF women’s basketball coach Jose Fernandez has added another prospect to his upcoming recruiting class.
European standout Dorottya Nagy, a 6-foot-2 small forward from Pecs, Hungary, is just the latest talent to join Fernandez’s strong squad.
“I’m very excited to be adding a high caliber student-athlete to our family,” said Fernandez in a press release. “I think she is a great fit for our program, both academically and athletically, and I’m excited about her versatility on both ends of the court.”
The five-star standout has been a member of the U16, U17, U18 and U20 Hungarian national teams. She recently averaged 9.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game at the FIBA U17 World Championships.
Even though she is listed as a small forward, Nagy can play several different positions. She is known for having a wide range with a “relentless” defensive mindset and is listed as the fourth-best forward in Hungary.
Riding the coattails of their recent postseason success, USF hopes Nagy and the rest of this new class can help fill the void left by program greats like Courtney Williams, who was picked eighth overall in the 2016 WNBA Draft.
Nagy will join the class of 2020 with Jazzmaine Bond, Tamara Henshaw, Shae Leverett and Enna Pehadzic this fall as the Bulls set their sights on a third-straight NCAA tournament appearance.
