Auburn announces the signing of Romi Levy, a 6-2 forward from Herzliya, Israel.
Romi Levy, who will be the first Auburn women’s basketball player from Israel, has signed with the Tigers, head coach Terri Williams-Flournoy announced today.
Levy was part of the Israeli 18U national team that competed in the 2018 U18 Women’s European Championship, helping her country to the bronze medal. In that competition, she scored 14 points in a win over Lithuania and had 13 points and four assists in a win over Albania.
“Romi is a passionate competitor who is coming to the States to play with and against the best,” Williams-Flournoy said. “Romi is able to not only bring experience from the international level, but also an exceptional IQ for the game. Her sharp-shooting and pure scoring capabilities make her a true perimeter threat. Romi’s length and court vision combined with her versatility in multiple positions make her a great addition to the program.”
Suárez, a 6-foot-2 guard/forward who attended high school at INS Joaquim Blume, is listed as a four-star prospect by Blue Star Europe. She will be a freshman this fall and bring UT’s number of newcomers to four entering the 2020-21 campaign.
“We are thrilled to add Marta Suárez to the Lady Vol family,” Harper said. “Marta is a very versatile player and possesses a wide skill set. She can handle the ball, pass, post up, rebound and score. In addition, she is a very hard worker and is quite competitive.”
The newest Lady Vol will join Tess Darby (6-1, G/F, Greenfield, Tenn., Greenfield H.S.) and Destiny Salary (6-0, G, Jonesboro, Ark., Jonesboro H.S.) in the prep signing class of 2020. With the addition of graduate transfer Keyen Green (6-1, F/C, Philadelphia, Pa., Phil-Mont Christian Academy) from Liberty University, UT has increased its roster to 12 players.
UNLV (Mountain West) announces the signing of Nia Johnson, 5-8 juco sophomore G, Diablo Valley College (CA) / Sacramento, CA. Johnson, who spent her freshman year at Cal State Bakersfield, is the first pickup for new Rebel head coach Lindy La Rocque.
Nia Johnson will be the newest member of the UNLV women’s basketball team and the first recruited by new Lady Rebel head coach Lindy La Rocque, as the junior college transfer signed on Friday to play for the Scarlet & Gray for the 2020-21 season.
“We are so excited to add Nia to our Rebel Family,” said La Roqcue. “Nia is a dynamic scorer and winner. She has basketball experience and maturity that can have a great impact on our team right away.”
Hannah White, 5-8 G, Wheeling Central Catholic HS (WV): announced her commitment to Cleveland State (Horizon) a few days ago.
White was pretty sold on CSU after a recruiting visit her sophomore year. That family atmosphere and never leaving her side, interest-wise, throughout the rehab process made White’s decision all the easier.
“Cleveland State has always been one of my top choices since I first stepped on their campus,” White said. “They were just so welcoming and I felt comfortable. I have built a great relationship with the staff and we kept in contact throughout my entire rehab process.”
