Lindsey Moss signs with Tennessee Lady Vols

Lindsey Moss, a guard from Alpharetta, Ga., signed Wednesday with Tennessee and should fit right in: Coach Pat Summitt first cited her versatility. <p> The 6-foot player from Chattahoochee High School is the single signee for the Tennessee Lady Vols from the 2005 class.

"A player with great versatility," Summitt said Wednesday after Moss' letter of intent was officially received by the university. "She handles the ball, she can play 1 (point), 2 (wing) 3 (perimeter), probably more 2 and 3 because of her scoring ability."

Summitt said she talked with Moss' coach, who told her Moss was "shooting the ball exceptionally well."

Summitt will travel to Georgia next week to see Moss play. Moss was in attendance Sunday at Thompson-Boling Arena when the Lady Vols hosted Carson-Newman in an exhibition game.

"I'm really anxious to see how she does," Summitt said. "I talked to her last night, and things are going great."

Moss, who is rated No. 22 in the nation by the All Star Girls Report, was a Street & Smith All-America Honorable Mention in 2003 and 2004.

"She's their go-to," Summitt said. "The thing that impressed me the most was her court vision. She's a great passer in the open floor, very unselfish player, but obviously for her team she has to be a little more concerned about getting shots. I like her size - a good rebounding guard."

As far as defense, Summitt said, "there's no reason why she couldn't be a solid defensive player, because she's rangy. She's got long arms, long legs. The key right there is learning to how to play position."
