Techsters make recruiting strides

With Wednesday's signing of 6-3 post Sierra Nixon and 5-5 jitterbug point guard April Williams, the Lady Techsters are on their way to a tremendous recuiting class. Williams was the best player on one of the best JUCO teams in the country and Nixon has unlimited potential, if she can stay healthy.

The worry with Nixon is that the guard-forward had knee surgery in high school, missing a season, then had it again last year after her freshman year at Trinity Valley Community College.

The Techsters already signed the best player in Mississippi and the best in Alabama in the fall, so Wednesday's additions give them 12 players for next season, including the best player from Texas from a year ago.

Coach Chris Long said that he hopes to sign up to three more players in the next two weeks and Techsters fans are hoping there'll be a shooting guard in the mix. With Aarica Ray-Boyd finishing her eligibility, the Techsters don't have a bonafide 3-point specialist. It'll be tough to improve on their 26-5 mark of last season without one.
