Pat Summitt reaffirmed Tuesday the likelihood of Tennessee adding another women's basketball player to the signing class of 2010.
NCAA regulations don't allow the Lady Vols coach to say who she has in mind. Summitt did elaborate on the type of player UT wants.
"Probably a combo guard,'' said Summitt, following UT's basketball workout at Pratt Pavilion. "There's some good players out there."
To date, Lauren Avant, a point guard from Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, is the lone commitment to the class.
Tennessee will have an extra scholarship to offer. Summitt said that Cait McMahan, who stopped playing in January because of persistent knee problems, will follow through on her intentions of becoming a student assistant. Therefore, the former point guard will go on a medical scholarship.
"It will not count in our basketball scholarships,'' Summitt said.
Summitt said that there are no plans to recruit a junior college guard. Instead, she mentioned incoming guards Kamiko Williams and Taber Spani.
"I'm excited about Kamiko coming in and what she's going to add, and Taber,'' Summitt said.
Summitt said that Williams and signee Faith Dupree from Webb School both plan to attend both sessions of summer school. Summitt said that Spani will attend the first session and might attend both sessions, too.
Mind Games: Sophomore guard Angie Bjorklund is sold on the non-punitive nature of these workouts and is doing her part to convince her teammates.
"I don't think we need to look at it as punishment and I've tried to make that clear, as clear as possible,'' Bjorklund said. "This is a time to get better."
With that in mind, Bjorklund and teammates Sydney Smallbone and Alicia Manning helped to arrange a team meeting Tuesday with Joe Whitney, the program's director of mental training.
"We came together as a team and said we need to get our mindset right,'' Bjorklund said.
