Horrocks missed all but one game of her junior season after enduring a season ending knee injury. She received a medical red-shirt last season, which allows her to have two years of eligibility at Vanderbilt. 

The former Purdue Boilermaker averaged 4.1 points per game as a sophomore but was expected to receive more playing time as a junior. Horrocks stands 6'5 while having extremely long arms. She is a long, physical presence inside and someone with enough skill to develop into a strong contributor in the SEC.

Horrocks join former Boston College center Mariella Fasoula in transferring to Vanderbilt. Both 6'5 centers will start their Vanderbilt careers in the 2018-2019 season. Both players will also provide Vanderbilt two girls with size and length in the post while also giving the team scoring options inside. 

Head coach Stephanie White is putting in work trying to revamp her roster. She is trying to bring in talent, experience and size. All three traits are things Vanderbilt is lacking and will be needed by the time both girls start the careers with the Commodores.
