Kansas State lands Angela Harris (5-6 JR point guard, Cypress, TX), a grad transfer from Houston.
“I was hearing from a lot of schools, but the two others I visited were George Washington and Kansas.

They were the only school that had their head coach call me first. That really set them apart.
“I need to have a relationship with the head coach and I have that with Coach Mittie.”
