From Post staff reports
Mt. Juliet High’s all-state post player Caya Williams has committed to Middle Tennessee State and will sign with the Lady Raiders in November.
“MTSU is close to home and I just knew I’d have a lot more of my friends and family close to me,” Williams said. “I really like the coaches and I really like the school.”
Williams chose Middle Tennessee over Tennessee Tech, Western Kentucky and Louisville.
Williams, a three-year starter for Coach Chris Fryer, was a finalist for TSSAA Miss Basketball last season as a junior -- averaging 23.3 points and eight rebounds per game. She is a two-time District 9AAA MVP.
“I think she’ll make a great college player,” Coach Fryer said. “I’m glad she was able to get this out of the way and focus on her senior year. It’s good not to have that pressure on her.”
