“I am so excited about next year’s freshman class,” commented coach Wells. “Our staff did a tremendous job finding players capable of having an immediate impact and who all want to excel and grow this program into a championship contender year in and year out.”
Destiney Gaston, a 6-3 center,
averaged a double-double as a senior at
Mumford is a 5-9 guard from
“Kesi and Denisha will be the tallest of our guards at 5’9 and 5’10 next season, both with great ability to shoot from beyond the arc. Simone is an extremely aggressive post player, similar to Okafor, who can rebound the ball well and who uses her body to score easily. Destiney brings a shot blocking post presence in a long 6’3 frame that we haven’t had here in a very long time. ”
These four newcomers will join the three fall signees, 6-1 forward Avery Jones, 5-8 guard Jasmine Shuler and 5-6 guard Ashley Tate.
“The members of this freshman class all have unique and different skills that were missing from our program for next year. We are looking forward to competitive practices and continued success on the court with the addition of these talented signees.”
