Lindsey Hein, 6-6 C, Forsyth HS (MT): announced her commitment to Montana State.
Hein, a 6-foot-6 junior, said she also had offers from Montana, Iowa State, Nebraska and North Dakota State.
“My first decision was to play basketball instead of volleyball,” Hein told MTN Sports. “After that I narrowed it down and decided that I wanted to be able to play in front of family and friends in my home state. … MSU is closer to home. Obviously, coach (Tricia Binford) has had a lot of success there.”
“It checked all of the boxes, from their style of play to academics and it’s close to home,” Brown said. “It’s a great culture, and I love the team and the coaches. It checked every box that I had in mind, and I knew that it was right.”
The 5-foot-10 guard has four Big Ten offers, including Michigan, Penn State and Rutgers. Other offers include Marquette, DePaul and Providence.
Recent offers announced for 2021 women’s basketball prospects include:
- Chantae Embry, 6-2 F, Norman HS (OK): UT Arlington
- Malia Fisher, 6-2 W, Hebron Christian Academy (Dacula, GA): Richmond
- Rori Harmon, 5-7 PG, Cypress Creek HS (Houston, TX): Baylor
- Olivia Koontz, 6-3 F/C, Signal Mountain HS (TN): Tennessee Tech
- Mariah Roberts, 5-8 G, Martin HS (Arlington, TX): North Texas
- Tyrielle Williams, 5-7 G, Ursuline Academy (New Orleans, LA): UL Monroe
The relationship with Mizzou’s staff and Pingeton was one of the primary components to her commitment despite the Tigers’ rebuilding season.
“I have a really good relationship with the coach at Missouri and that just made me like them a lot more over everybody else. (Pingeton) has been recruiting me for a very long time and she’s always stuck through it and I’ve always had a good relationship with her,” Dorroh said.
Olivia Westphal, 5-10 W, Bethel Park HS (PA): picked up an offer from George Washington.
