ASHWAUBENON (WLUK) -- Green Bay Preble's Carley Duffney stood out this past season, averaging 18.2 points per game as a sophomore, and colleges started noticing, including Green Bay, which has offered the guard.

Thursday, Duffney will visit Wisconsin and after that she will visit South Dakota. Duffney has other offers from North Dakota and Colgate and she's enjoying the process.

"It's super-awesome getting recruited, how it's going on right now, people contacting me and knowing that people are noticing me," Duffney said. "I don't think I will make any final commitments this year, wait it out a little bit."

Green Bay offers Duffney

Duffney is one of two Division I recruits on Preble, with teammate Kendall Renard already committing to Green Bay. Duffney is a 5-11 playmaking guard who sees the floor well and is developing her offensive game beyond the arc. The attention she's getting is what she hoped for.

"I felt like I always belonged," Duffney said. "I didn't want to overthink it and automatically think about it. I know I have to work super-hard for everything."

Hornets coach Jim Doell sees Duffney as a player who's only going to get better.

"Carley Duffney is definitely coming into her own," he said. "What you want out of players is for them to improve each week and each year and she does that. She will take a new skill and she will put it into her game the next day. She definitely has elevated her game."
