“I just love the inspire me to write my essay coaching staff,” Motley said.  “Coach (Katie) Meier is big on player development so that was huge for me going there.”

This summer Motley was the perimeter scoring punch that fueled the Boo Williams Summer League attack.  Motley showed that she had the ability to play the role of playmaker while still finding ways to score the ball in the flow of the offense.

“They play an up-tempo and fast paced game, just how I play,” Motley said.  “I just in a persuasive essay can you use i believe I had the best opportunity by going there. Their academic and communications programs are great.”

In addition to Motley, who is ranked No. 27 in the class, Meier and her staff have secured a verbal commitment from 5-10 wing Nigia Greene of Atlanta, Ga.  With Motley’s decision the Hurricane’s have two perimeter scoring threats that can create their own offense off the dribble.
