For the second time in as many days, the UK Hoops team has gotten a commitment from an Indiana prep player for the 2016 season.
On Tuesday night, Indianapolis Roncalli Guard, Lindsey Corsaro, gave a verbal commitment to UK Hoops Coach, Matthew Mitchell. Late Wednesday night, news broke that Sydney Shelton of Mt. Vernon High School, which is just outside of Indianapolis, also committed to the Cats.
Shelton will be a Junior next season. The 5'8" guard averaged 20 points, five rebounds and 3 assists last season. And, Shelton started on Mt. Vernon's 3A state title team as freshman.
This is how a USA Today article described her before her Sophomore season:
Most of you probably got your first glance at Sydney when she poured in 29 points in the 3A State Finals this past season. Sydney is a highly skilled, high IQ, fairly athletic lead guard with a knack for always making the right decision. She too was invited to the USA Basketball U16 National Team tryouts this summer.
