IU women land 2013 PG commit

The Indiana women’s basketball team picked up it second commitment for the class of 2013 Thursday.

ESPN HoopGurlz reported that Taylor Agler, a 5-foot-8 point guard from Westerville, Ohio, verbally committed to the Hoosiers, according to her club team coach, J.B. Bethea of All Ohio Basketball.

Agler is the daughter of Brian Agler, the head coach and general manager of the WNBA’s Seattle Storm.

She joins 6-foot-3 Jenn Anderson of Westfield in the 2013 class and is the fourth player to join the IU program since Curt Miller was named head coach in late March. The others are transfers Kaila Hulls (Bowling Green) and Claire Jakubicek (Northern Illinois).


  1. This girl has to be very good, her father is a great women’s coach who has coached in the WNBA! I read the other day that LaRae Cruz is going to IU, she is on one of the teams playing in an All Star game down South? Does anybody know anything about this? She played at Greenfield Central I think. In an article in the Star the other day about this game, she was listed as attending Indiana? Haven’t seen anything else about this.

    As I have stated all along, Miller is the man!! He will get this thing turned around! Things are looking up!

  2. He is looking like a very solid hire. Some of you guys were singing his praises from the get go. Good call.

    It can’t hurt to be able to promise a recruit that she will absolutely be seen by WNA coaches. This early into the game and he’s done so many good things.

    It’s about time IU made a commitment to the women’s game.

  3. Mike,
    LaRae Cruz is playing in the Hoosier Reunion Classic June 1. Her college is listed as Indiana, but I’m not sure she’s actually going to play at IU. If so, it would likely be as a walk on.

  4. Jeremy, thanks for the update. I had read in the Star she was going to Indiana and was puzzeled by not seeing anything from the University. From what I have read, she seems to be a pretty good player? I know that the IU women’s team does not normally accept walk-ons. This would be interesting if she did walk on.

  5. I suppose with only 9 players on the roster for next year, pending Kaila Hulls’ appeal for eligibility, a walk on or two might be necessary. Don’t know much about Cruz, other than she is a 5-5 point guard and scored over 1,000 career points.
