“Thank you to Alayjah, Britney and Erica as well as their families and coaches for believing in our vision for ETSU Women’s Basketball and for joining the Buccaneer family,” said Ezell. “These three signees have the talent, potential and opportunity to impact our program in a variety of ways on and off the court.”
“They are high character people and high achieving student-athletes that all know how to win. Additionally, I want to praise our recruiting coordinator, Coach Nikki Davis for orchestrating such diligent recruiting efforts. Also want to thank our newest assistant coaches Coach Keisha McClinic and Coach Eric Dumas, for their hard work in signing this phenomenal 2017 class.”
Erica Haynes-Overton – 5’9” Guard – Nashville, Tenn. – East Nashville Magnet High
“Erica Haynes-Overton is a one of a kind athlete and talent. She possesses an explosive level of athleticism with game changing intensity. Erica can play at the rim, thrive in the midrange and score from the three-point line. She is a lockdown defender and a tenacious rebounder. Erica has a non-stop motor and a passion for the game that will be infectious to our program and fans.”
Alayjah Sherer – 5’11 Guard – Tupelo, MS. – Tupelo High School
“Alayjah Sherer is a versatile guard with remarkable athleticism and size on the wing. She is a natural scorer that flourishes in transition. Alayjah has yet to tap into her full potential and her best basketball is still ahead of her. She competes on the glass on both ends and is the consummate team player.”
Britney Snowden – 6’0” Forward – Pensacola, Fla. – Northwest Florida State College
“Britney Snowden is a powerful post presence with a relentless work ethic. She is a natural leader with the ability to elevate the play of all those around her. A 4.0 student and a proven winner at the high school and junior college level, Britney will endear herself to teammates and fans alike with her blue collar workman-like approach.”
