Lander announced the addition of Torrion Starks, 5-8 G, Hart County HS (Hartwell, GA). She had signed with Western Kentucky last fall. Lander is a D-II school in Greenwood, South Carolina.
Lander women’s basketball head coach Kevin Pederson announced the addition of Torrion Starks to Lander’s incoming recruiting class this week.
Starks, a 5-8 guard, originally signed with Western Kentucky out of Hart County High School in Georgia. She netted over 1,500 points through the first three seasons of prep career and was a GACA first-team all-state honoree as well as a three-time first-team all-region selection.
Cal officially announces the addition of Leilani McIntosh, 5-6 PG, Xavier College Prep (Phoenix, AZ). She had signed last fall with Pepperdine but changed course following the recent departure of that school’s head coach, DeLisha Milton-Jones, for a spot on the Syracuse staff.
A dynamic point guard, McIntosh was the 2019 6A Premier Region Player of the Year at Xavier College Preparatory in Phoenix, Arizona, where she was also a member of the school’s 1,000-point club. No stranger to competing in California, McIntosh played her club ball for West Coast Premier, along with fellow incoming Bear Cailyn Crocker.
McIntosh and Crocker are joined in Cal’s incoming freshman class by Evelien Lutje Schipholt and Jazlen Green, who all look to make an impact both on and off the court for the Bears.
Butler (Big East) announces the addition of 5-8 combo guard N’Dea Flye, a juco transfer out of Northwest Tech (Goodland, KS) who started her college career at New Mexico.
Head Coach Kurt Godlevske is pleased to announce the addition of N’Dea Flye to the Butler women’s basketball program. Flye, a 5-8 combo guard, played one season at New Mexico and most recently participated at Northwest Tech. She will enter her junior season at BU, giving her two years of eligibility as a Bulldog.
“N’Dea brings another dimension to our program,” Godlevske stated. “She’s a hard worker both on the court and in the classroom which will allow her to represent us well in the Indianapolis community. As a staff, we love N’Dea’s quickness, allowing her to attack the paint. She also has the ability to stretch the defense with her outside shooting. Her overall athleticism will allow us to extend our defense, creating a more up-tempo style. I’m excited she chose to be a Butler Bulldog and want to welcome her to our Butler Family.”
Saint Louis University (A-10) adds a grad transfer from the Syracuse softball team: Hannah Dossett (5-6 guard, Warsaw, KY), who scored more than 2,000 points during her high school career at Gallatin County HS.
Saint Louis head women’s basketball coach Lisa Stone has announced the addition of 5-foot-6 guard Hannah Dossett (Warsaw, Ky./Gallatin County H.S.) to the Billikens’ 2019-20 roster. Dossett is a graduate transfer from Syracuse University, where she was a four-year member of the softball team. She has one year of basketball eligibility remaining.
“It is our pleasure to welcome Hannah Dossett to our Billiken family,” Stone said. “Hannah was an outstanding athlete in high school who chose softball over basketball for an opportunity to play at Syracuse. She is a great shooter with deep range and a quick release. We look forward to her helping our team as we aim for an Atlantic 10 Conference championship.”
Lehigh (Patriot League) announces two incoming freshman additions, both from Minnesota: Anna Harvey, 5-7 G, Lakeville South HS (MN), and Frannie Hottinger, 6-0 F, Cretin-Derham Hall HS (St. Paul, MN).
This year, the recruiting class includes two players from Minnesota, a guard and a forward, who have both excelled on the court in their high school careers heading into Lehigh.
Both players look to fill the void from key contributor Hailey Pascoe, who graduated from Lehigh in May. Hottinger and Harvey join Hannah Hedstrom, Emma Grothaus, Mariah Sexe and Megan Walker as the team’s players from Minnesota.
“Both Frannie and Anna are outstanding student-athletes who have excelled in the classroom and on the basketball court, preparing them well for the challenges of Lehigh,” said Troyan. “They also come from outstanding families who have laid a great foundation for their future success. We’re excited that they’ve arrived on campus to begin their journey.”
