Brianna Turnage (6-1 FR wing, from Atlanta, GA), was a Va. Tech signee in 2021 and a Ga. Tech recruit, top 100 talent nationally. She sat out this season as said it was to give up basketball. Surprise, she has returned and entered the transfer portal.

She enrolled at VA Tech last summer, then never registered for the Fall (or dropped out shortly after the semester began). Something upset her life. Clearly, she was, and I suppose still is, a very talented basketball player. With four years of eligibility left, she would add to our four incoming freshmen. From a claass balance standpoint, that isn't the best option.

Kimora Jenkins and Alina Sendar left new Georgia coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson, and Jillian Hollingshead was close with them. Apparently if that’s true, on why she left the Mutts. That’s the rumor as to why J.H. has decided on UofTennessee- after entering the portal. Heard she or possibly a family member did reach out to the Nellow Jackettes. Not sure what happened, other than it was during this process.

Vivian Stringer of Rutgers has announced Sept. 1, 2022 as her retirement date.

They have already begun the search for a new coach, but this seems an odd time to announce a retirement, especially since she hasn't been coaching the team for the past year. Maybe after 50 years she decided not coaching was an OK way to spend the rest of her life. A HOF Coach, she really doesn't have anything left to accomplish.

I would be surprised if either Jenkins or Sendar are being recruited by GT.

Imll ask a dumb question. Is this Matt Harpring’s daughter?
I asked the same thing. Couldn’t get an answer that was for certain. Did some online searches and decided that Katie and Kate are one in the same. She goes by both according to Brandon Clay. So yes, she’s a Matt Harpring child. Hearing she is quite the tennis player, too!

The reason offers are documented by the head coach either in writing or on a phone call with a parent on the line, is because that’s the only way to validate it.
