It's Destinee: Young chooses ODU

Her Twitter bio says, "Ball is life."

It also says, "I've committed to Old Dominion."

Destinee Young will be a Lady Monarch in the 2013-14 season. The 6-foot forward from Hoffman Estates High in Illinois has committed to ODU. Hoffman Estates is a northwest suburb of Chicago.

Young won back-to-back state championships with her AAU team, Illinois Elite. She was named to the all-tournament team by opposing coaches at the Nike U.S. Junior National Summer Final.

ODU's other verbal is from 6-1 forward Odegua Oigbokie of  Ridgeway, Tenn. Chelisa Painter, a transfer from George Washington and graduate of Indian River (Chesapeake) High, will also be eligible for the 2013-14 season.

"Loved the coaches and the team," Young told LadySwish via twitter. "I was also considering Kent State and the University of Denver."

We're glad to have Destinee at ODU!

  1. I really, really like coach KB. She is a "ball of fire" and basketball to her is, indeed, like the cool breeze on a hot, muggy day. ODU fans can see and feel her commitment and enthusiasm for the game; No doubt recruits can see and feel it too.

    KB "WILL" get ODU back to the Final-4, or die trying, and that's real talk. Destinee Young, welcome to the ODU family. Can't wait to see you play.
