6-Foot-1 8th Grader Commits To Baylor Basketball
Keep an eye out folks, Samantha Wagner is gonna be a starter in the WNBA someday!
The 6-foot-1 8th-grade student has made an oral commitment to play for the Baylor Lady Bears once she finishes school in San Antonio. This is big news for Baylor as Samantha can probably get a full athletic scholarship to any school in the world. Did you watch the video above? This girl is gonna be a name you want to remember.
Here is Samantha Wagner with Lady Bears coach Kim Mulkey.
Sammie's love for Baylor is part of a family tradition. Her father played football at Baylor for Coach Grant Teaff from 1988-1991 according to Julie Hayes at News 10. She went to her first basketball camp in the first grade. Her parents told News 10 that when Sammie was born her first word was "ball".
First things first. Let's all keep an eye on the Regan High School (San Antonio area) girls basketball team this fall because Sammie may end up breaking all kinds of records for points, minutes played, and rebounds. I'm sure her new teammates will be thrilled to have her join their team. The watchful eyes of the Baylor Lady Bears will be looking on as well. Wagner will be eligible to play for Baylor in the fall of 2023.
