Gophers' Lindsay Whalen lands her second recruit: four-star guard Mercedes Staples

Less than a week after nabbing local recruit Sara Scalia of Stillwater High School, new Gophers women’s basketball coach Lindsay Whalen has landed her first out-of-state recruit.

Mercedes Staples of Viewmont High School in Bountiful, Utah, announced via Twitter on Wednesday afternoon that she has committed to the Gophers. The 5-foot-10 guard originally signed with Clemson, but requested a release after the school fired coach Audra Smith.
