Signing their first high school recruit of the season, the Lady Greyhounds have signed Kaylan Larry from Parkview High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, to an NJCAA Letter of Intent and Scholarship Agreement.
The 5'4" guard was a 4-year varsity letterman and led the Patriots in scoring with 16.1 points while pulling down 3.9 rebounds, dishing out 2 assists, and collecting 2.9 steals per game as a senior. She was named All-Conference and earned State Farm Player of the Game honors three times, including a high game of 38 points for Head Coach Lahoma Howard.
As the first signee for ASU Mid-South Head Coach Mercedes Corona, Larry will help lead the resurgence of the Lady Greyhounds after last season was cut short due to student-athlete ineligibility.
"I look forward to adding high-character student-athletes who understand and want the opportunity to commit to being collegiate basketball players and 'building bricks' for the future of our program," Corona said at the time. "I have a tireless work ethic and have been around successful programs, so I know what it takes and will add student-athletes who share my passion to get it done."
"Coach Corona was put in a tough position when hired in that she had only a couple of months to recruit for her first season, and that is tough on any coach because the higher quality student-athletes are going to have already committed elsewhere," said Greyhound Athletic Director Chris Parker. "Now that she will have a full season to recruit the type of student-athlete who fits our culture, I have every confidence this will be the beginning of the greatest days of the Lady Greyhound program."
