Three of the top seniors in the Detroit Public School League have each signed a National Letter of Intent to play major college women’s basketball.
Branndais Agee, a 5-10½ guard from Cass Tech, is headed to Michigan State; Chelsea Lynn, a 6-0 forward from M.L. King, has committed to Central Michigan; and Creiona Posey, a 5-7 guard from Cody, is going to Texas-El Paso (UTEP).
The signings leave Pershing High 5-9 guard Caprice Dennis as the PSL’s highest-profile girls’ basketball senior who has not yet announced her college plans.
Agee, considered one of the nation’s top recruits, chose Michigan State after making an early commitment to Penn State.
“After I took all my visits, I just felt comfortable at Michigan State,’’ she said. “I love the team, the coaching staff is real nice and it’s close to home. I just feel like it’s the right place for me.”
Accompanied by her family and past and present coaches, Agee made her announcement Thursday at a reception in the gymnasium of Golightly Middle School, where she first caught the basketball bug.
“I was in here every day,” she said, speaking to an audience that included players from Golightly’s current team. “This little gymnasium is where I learned the game, inside these walls.”
Posey chose UTEP over a number of other interested colleges. “I like their fast-place style,’’ she said of the Miners. “They like to get up and down the floor, which is the kind of game I play.”
Lynn joins a Central Michigan program that “has a family feel to it,’’ she said.”It’s home away from home and the best fit for my career goals.”
