Lubbock, Texas native Ellis Fox has announced her verbal commitment to Texas A&M University for the 2023-24 school year and beyond.
“I am beyond humbled to announce my verbal commitment to further my academic and athletic career at Texas A&M University! First, I’d like to acknowledge that none of this would be possible without the unfailing glory and grace of God. Secondly, I’d like to thank my friends, family, coaches, and teachers. Y’all have blessed me beyond measure and helped push and encourage me to be the best version of myself! I cannot wait for the next 4 years under Coach Bultman, Coach Maxvill, and the amazing staff in Aggieland! GIG’EM”
