Hoops - Ladies Get Verbal from 6'7" Center

Nice recruiting effort by nabbing a 6'7" center also being sought by LSU, GA, MD, Auburn. Jasmine Duffy.

Jasmine Duffey, a 6-foot-7 center at Jonesboro High, has committed to sign with Georgia Tech's women's basketball team during the spring period. Duffey, the tallest girls player in the state, chose the Yellow Jackets over Maryland, Georgia, LSU and Auburn. The all-stater has averaged 10 points, 10 rebounds and eight blocks this season. "They did a great job of recruiting her," said Alvin Duffey, Jasmine's father. "It seems to be a good fit and great opportunity. She grew up on the south side of Atlanta, and besides, Georgia Tech is a great school."
