April 10, 2020: committed to DePaul
Morgantown’s Kaitlyn Ammons commits to Big East Champion DePaul (MetroNews, 4/10/2020)
“I am so excited. I can’t wait to put on a DePaul jersey. The feelings I am having right now are overwhelming. I have known I was going to commit all week and I have been itching to tell people. I couldn’t wait.”
DePaul head coach Doug Bruno has won 722 games in 34 seasons in with the Blue Demons. He was instrumental in recruiting Ammons.
“(Coach Bruno) was calling me multiple times every week. He was very involved and that is hard to find at a lot of schools. That was one of the main points why they seemed like the best fit.”

The four juniors on the roster each have varsity experience and Kaitlyn Ammons is one of the most talented bigs in the state. Ammons, who racked up multiple Division I scholarship offers in the offseason, will be called on not only for leadership but will be expected to produce in a big way throughout the season.
“She’s a huge part of what we’re going to do,” said White. “Any time you have a kid with that size and that skill, especially here in West Virginia. To get a kid with her size and her skill in this area is pretty uncommon, so she obviously has to be a focus of what we do.
“We have to make teams take her away and when teams try to take her away then it will open up some things for other kids. Not only is she important to us because she can score the ball, she’s also going to get other people open looks. She’s really gotten better, she’s continued to get better playing AAU basketball all over the country and she’s added more to her game. She’s a better 3-point shooter than she was a year ago, she’s more confident handling the basketball and my job as a coach is to continue to push her.”
