LARAMIE, Wyoming — Forward Rachelle Tucker, of Pierce, Nebraska, has verbally committed to play for Wyoming.
The 6-foot-2 Tucker is entering her senior year at high school and is the second recruit for the 2015 Cowgirl class. She joins 6-1 forward Daley Handy of Maize, Kansas, as verbal commitments for the Cowgirls.
The earliest a basketball player can sign a national letter of intent is November.
Tucker averaged 19 points and 8.3 rebounds a game during her junior year last season. She also shot 60 percent from the field and 70 percent from the free-throw line while averaging 1.7 blocks and 1.3 steals a game.
Tucker tells the Laramie Boomerang (http://bit.ly/1n178s5 ) that she will have to work on improving her 3-point shooting but she believes she can do that.
