More than a handful of schools made offers to 2023 guard Page Erickson. After evaluating all of their academics, campus and basketball programs, Erickson committed to play for Loras College, an NCAA Division III standout in Iowa.
“From the moment I stepped on campus, I felt welcomed by all the people there and loved the environment,” Erickson said. “The campus was beautiful, and I could really see myself going there. I got to meet most of the team, and they were all super nice, and I enjoyed spending time with them. After talking to the coach and watching their games, I thought I could fit into the basketball program well.”
Loras has posted a 68-17 record over the last three full seasons, winning NCAA Tournament games during both 2020 and 2023. The Duhawks are adding a versatile offensive threat to their roster.
“Page Erickson has great talent, drive and an incredible work ethic,” ScoutU’s Linda Blackwell Bentley said. “She is one of the hardest working athletes I’ve advised. I scouted a tournament where they had no bench because of injuries – only five players – and Page led the way with such intensity and great effort!”
Erickson helped Central High School (Ill.) to three regional championships during her career. She then added 1st-Team All-Area recognition as a senior.
“I am super excited and grateful to continue my basketball career at the college level, because it’s been a dream of mine since I was young,” she said. “I’m excited to compete against greater talent, because I believe that will push me to become a better player and reach more of my basketball goals.”
Owning a 3.6 GPA, Erickson is pursuing a career in physical therapy. Now she’ll have the opportunity to earn a college degree while extending her athletic career.
“Page was always open for any tips I suggested and is very coachable,” Blackwell Bentley said. “I especially love Page’s pump-fake and drive to the hoop, along with her ability to consistently make off-balance shots. Page’s parents are absolutely wonderful people, and I really enjoyed helping them through the recruiting process.”
Erickson visited multiple colleges in the Midwest, searching for the best fit. ScoutU was happy to open those doors and set her up for a successful future.
“Linda was great to work with,” Page’s mom Tawnya Weseman said. “She gave advice to our daughter when she came to tournaments and promoted Page often. Linda is very friendly and knowledgeable about the recruiting process and the game of basketball. I want to thank her for being there to help our daughter along the way.”
