Esko, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- When Esko senior Savanna Trapp gave her verbal commitment to Division I UCLA on Thursday evening, she said she felt like the star of the final episode on the "The Bachelorette."

"You get to know all these colleges. You get to know them and build relationships," Trapp said. "Then, you slowly let some go and your journey ends with that college. As time moves on, you slowly move it down to one and give the final rose."

Trapp said Friday afternoon that she'd also taken unofficial visits to the University of Minnesota, the University of Iowa, Iowa State, Northwestern, and the University of Southern California (USC).

The 6-foot-9 Eskomos senior averaged 20 points and nine rebounds in the 2011-12 season, helping lead her team to a third straight Section 7AA championship game.
