LOUISVILLE, KY: Three elite athletes have signed with the University of Louisville women’s basketball team for the 2024 class, the team’s head coach Jeff Walz and his staff announced today.

Three players have committed to the Louisville women’s basketball program: 5-foot-10 guard Norika Konno from Sendai, Japan; 6-4 forward Ramani Parker from Fresno, California; and 6-foot-1 guard Nyah Green from Allen, Texas.

“We are thrilled to announce our 2024 signing class,” Walz stated. “Year after year, we have demonstrated that we are willing to go to any lengths to locate players who will benefit from our curriculum. It’s amazing to have Nyah from Texas, Ramani from California, and Norika from Japan join us, and I can’t wait for our fans to see them perform.”

The recruiting class is rated No. 14 in the country, according to espnW HoopGurlz, and it marks the eighth time in the last 10 years that the Cardinals’ coaching staff has compiled a top 15 class.

Last season, Louisville brought in three in-state players with Molly Lockhart, Seygan Robins and Mykasa Robinson for the No. 13 class in the nation. In the spring, the Cardinals later added graduate transfer Yacine Diop. The Cardinals welcomed the No. 6 class in 2016 and the No. 1 class in 2015.

Overall, Walz and his staff have signed nine McDonald’s All-Americans – with this year’s honorees still yet to be announced.

Nyah Green comes to Louisville as the No. 12-ranked player in the class of 2019, according to espnW HoopGurlz. The five-star prospect is tabbed as the seventh-best player at the guard position. She is ranked seventh overall and as the third-best guard by Prospects Nation.

She led Bishop Lynch to a TAPPS 6A state runner-up last season, averaging 18.7 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 37 games. At the conclusion of the season, she was named TAPPS 1-6A MVP and MaxPreps High School Girls Basketball All-American Team honorable mention.

She averaged 14.9 points and 5.0 rebounds as a sophomore when Bishop Lynch won the TAPPS 6A state championship. She was a first-team all-state selection.

Green is transferring to Allen High School for her senior season, the school she attended as a freshman.
