The Tennessee State University women’s basketball team has announced the addition of Middle Tennessee transfer Stephanie Meyers to the Lady Tiger program.
Meyers will sit out the upcoming 2013-14 season due to NCAA transfer guidelines and will be eligible to play for the 2014-15 campaign as a graduate student with one year of eligibility.
“We’re very excited about Stephanie coming to our program,” commented head coach Larry Inman. “She brings some experience, which we need, and she might be one of the tallest players to ever play here at Tennessee State University. She’s going to give us a great inside presence. She’s a great young lady and a great asset to our program based on a lot of things but mostly her integrity as an individual and her work ethic.”
Meyers played two years with Middle Tennessee after redshirting her freshman season. When she joined the program, the 6-5 native of Chicago was listed as the tallest player to ever sign with the Blue Raiders.
Prior to attending Middle Tennessee, Meyers played four years at LaVerne High School. She was ranked as the No. 25 post player by ESPN while also ranking among the Top 100 players nationally by Dan Olsen’s Collegiate Girls Basketball Report.
The Chicago, Ill. native was selected to the All-District 7 3A Team at the conclusion of her senior year. She was also named the Daily News Journal’s Female Athlete of the Week (Feb. 2, 2010).
