Towering center picks Vanderbilt women

Kayci Ferriss, a 6-foot-8 rising senior from Carthage, Tenn., has committed to play for Vanderbilt University for the 2010-2011 season.

"I can't wait to be a Commodore," said Kayci Ferriss, who averaged 21.4 points, 12 rebounds and 11 blocked shots per game as a junior with the Smith County High School Owls (26-5).

Recruited by virtually every program in the SEC as well as Purdue, Michigan, North Carolina and the University of Southern California, Kayci said she loves the playing style of the ‘Dores and attended a number of games last season. Kayci considered scholarship offers from Georgia, Purdue and Tennessee Tech. Legal guardian Glenna Edmonds, who made the announcement with her husband Jeffrey, said her niece made it clear early on that she had narrowed her choices.

During her official visit to Vanderbilt, Kayci was warmly welcomed by the team and coaching staff. "The girls and coaches made me feel right at home. I looked at it, and I thought, ‘I can see myself here.'"

NCAA rules prohibit coaches from commenting on any recruit until she signs a National Letter of Intent in November.
