Riley Courtney from Scottsdale, Arizona has announced her verbal commitment to the University of Texas for 2021-22. She will join Ava Collinge, Ellie Andrews, Jordan Morgan, Morgan Brophy, and Olivia McMurray in the Longhorns’ class of 2025.
“The second I stepped on campus, my smile lit up and I knew it was the place for me.”
