Coombs commits to UConn

Mikayla Coombs, a 5-foot-8 guard out of Wesleyan School in Norcross, Georgia, has become the third player from the Class of 2017 to commit to UConn.

Coombs made her announcement on her Twitter page

I am very happy to announce that I have committed to the University of Connecticut ! 🔴🔵⚪️

Normally I'd be on the phone with her at some point today but since I am currently on vacation, I'll most likely wait to touch base with her until later this month or in August.

Coombs averaged 13.3 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.4 steals per game as a junior. With the graduation of leading scorer Cairo Booker (the only other player to score more than 10 points per game last season) I would expect her individual scoring stats to improve next season. The most important thing about her time in high school is how she got used to playing in a winning environment as Wesleyan since the program has won 11 state titles since 2002 and 2003 is the only year they haven't reached a state final since 2001.

Here's a blog entry I did on her during the U.S. U-17 national team trials.

Coombs is ranked fourth in the Class of 2017 by All-Star Girls Report, is sixth in the Blue Star rankings and is No. 21 according to ESPN HoopGurlz.

She joins Andra Espinoza-Hunter and Lexi Gordon as players in the next recruiting class committed to UConn.
