Lauren Douglas picks Northwestern
It was announced on ESPN Hoopgurlz that 6-foot-2 wing Lauren Douglas of Collierville, Tenn., confirmed that she has made a verbal pledge to Northwestern. Douglas, who played her summer basketball with Memphis Elite Daniels, attends Briarcrest Christian School and also considered Miami, Georgia Tech, Marquette, Georgetown, and Virginia throughout her decision-making process.
The Big Ten-bound member of the class of 2012 was forced to sit out a good portion of her junior season due to Tennessee high school transfer rules. Douglas was permitted to play in the last four games of the season, where she helped her Briarcrest Saints team make the state championship game.
Douglas joins Maggie Lyon (New Trier/ Winnetka, Ill.) and Christen Johnson (Lovett School/ Atlanta, Ga.) as a member of the 2012 Wildcat recruiting class. Lyon made her verbal pledge to head coach Joe McKeon earlier in the week.
