ROCHESTER, Mich - Carah Burdette has signed a National Letter of Intent announced Oakland women's basketball head coach Jeff Tungate on Tuesday.
Burdette, a 5-foot-6 point guard from Bryan Station High School in Lexington, Ky., is the fifth addition to the Golden Grizzlies' 2017-18 recruiting class along with Myka Cromwell, Chloe Guingrich and Autumn Kissman and Alabama transfer Lakyesha Stennis.
"It's been a really good week for Oakland Women's Basketball. We really needed to bring in a point guard to add to our depth and give us some flexibility with our lineups," said Tungate. "Carah has seniors to learn from and will benefit greatly from their experience at the point guard position. She is a scoring point guard who can shoot the basketball, loves the game and has a very promising future as a Golden Grizzly."
