Nebraska women’s basketball coach Connie Yori announced the signing of Ohio prep star Rachel Theriot (pronounced RAY-chel, TERRY-oh) to a National Letter of Intent during the early signing period on Wednesday, Nov. 9.
Theriot, a 6-0 point guard out of Midpark High School in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, is a two-time All-Ohio performer entering her senior season in 2011-12. Last season, Theriot helped Midpark to a 22-3 overall record and a Southwestern Conference title under Coach Stephanie Mentz. Theriot averaged 12.7 points, 9.3 assists, 4.9 rebounds, 3.3 steals and 1.3 blocks per game for the Meteors.
“We have been recruiting Rachel for a long time, and we are really excited to add her to our team next year,” Yori said. “She brings great size to the point guard position and she can also play shooting guard. We love Rachel’s versatility. She is an unselfish player who loves to set her teammates up to score. She can also drive to the basket, hit the dribble jumper and knock down the three. She is also a good rebounder and defender. With her work ethic, we think she could have a bright future at Nebraska.”
