Lady Techsters Host Key Recruits On Saturday

Louisiana Tech added a commitment from one of the area's top recruits this week. Lady Techsters Head Coach Teresa Weatherspoon is looking to add one more commitment for the 2011 class.

Whitney Frazier, a 6'1" forward from El Dorado, AR recently committed to play her college ball at Louisiana Tech. Frazier, who led her team to the 6A State Semifinals, had an offer from Arkansas, as well as teams from the Big 12 Conference. Frazier averaged 14.9 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 3.6 steals a game as a junior for the Lady Wildcats.

Frazier is the fourth commitment for Coach Weatherspoon's 2011 class. Fellow El Dorado Wildcat Kanedria Andrews, a versatile offensive player also known for her defense, committed over the summer to Louisiana Tech.

Savanna Langston, a 6'3" forward from Parkers Chapel High School in El Dorado, is scheduled to visit Louisiana Tech this weekend. Langston averaged 16.7 points, 12 rebounds, and 5 blocks a game to lead the Lady Trojans to the Class 3A State Semifinals.

With that final scholarship in the 2011 class as well as the 2012 class, Tech is looking for size. The staff doesn't want to add size just to add size, they need talented post players. Langston would go a long way in helping fill that void.

Louisiana Tech wants to put a fence around the Ark-La-Tex region and keep the area's top players at home. In addition to South Arkansas, the Shreveport area will be a key part of that strategy.

Laura Owen, a 5'8" guard from Benton High School is another of the four commits for the Techster's 2011 Class. She averaged 8.5 points, 5 assists, and 3 steals last season.

A top 2012 player from the Shreveport area will be visiting this weekend. Morgan Rogers, a 6'3" post player from Loyola, averaged 8.9 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks while shooting over 54% from the field last season.

Joining Frazier, Andrews, and Owen as a 2011 commitment is Courtney Hayes, a 5'5" guard from Centenial High School in Las Vegas, NV. She was named to the All Northwest League First Team. All four recent commitments participated in Coach Weatherspoon's summer camp in Ruston. Just having the players on campus and being around the staff surely went a big way in gaining their pledges.

Teresa Weatherspoon and staff have brought the energy back to the Lady Techsters program. They are adding some serious talent to the mix as well. The program is definitely on the rise and the talent is in place for the Lady Techsters to go a long way.
