Brittney: "I am the become death, the destroyer of worlds." [Brittney at Lady Bear Summer Camp]
The Dallas Morning News is reporting that a Brittney Griner, a soon-to-be high school junior from Houston, has orally committed to playing for Kim Mulkey's Lady Bears. This DMN article is our source, which also drops a few numbers: 6'7", size 17 shoe, 80" wingspan, can dunk with ease with one or two hands. The fact that Brittney would consider coming to Waco shows how Mulk is worth every penny of her $1 mil/yr contract. Be careful, for this YouTube clip will cause you a few heart palpatations.
Another high school dunking phenom, this one from the Dallas-area, is considering playing for BU as well, as she enters her senior year. Her name? Brooklyn Pope. We covered this speculation earlier this year. Imagine: The Pope of Waco! I'm gonna have to give Mulk credit on an awesome recruiting job. If she could land just one dunker, our program will receive even more national attention and grow its fan base like never before. We already have great home attendance for such a small school. Could you imagine what it would be like if we had a girl (or two) who could dunk?
