Ada — New East Central University Head Women’s Basketball Coach Matt Cole has signed his first recruit for the 2014-15 class in Mariah Meyer. Meyer will be a freshman guard and is from Hendrickson High School in Pflugerville, Texas.
The 5-8 guard has spent the last three seasons at Hendrickson High School after transferring from Tuttle High School in Tuttle, Okla., after her freshman season.
“We are excited to add Mariah to the Tiger family,” said Cole. “She is a high character student-athlete that fans will enjoy watching compete and she has a bright future ahead here in Ada.”
Meyer earned All-District First Team honors as a sophomore and senior in Texas. She averaged 11 points, six assists and four rebounds in her final season as a prep. While in Oklahoma she helped Tuttle to the first round of the state playoffs.
“Mariah really has a motor and can shoot the ball from deep with a quick release,” Cole added. “We look forward to watching her develop in our system.”
