Robertson said she relishes the opportunity to learn from and play for a hall of fame coach in Sherri Coale.
McPherson High School's Taylor Robertson announced Thursday that she has committed to continuing her basketball career and education as an Oklahoma University Sooner. In addition to Oklahoma, the rising Bullpup's senior had full scholarship offers from Creighton, Utah, Texas Tech, Kansas State, Tulsa, Louisiana Tech, Missouri State, Weber State, University of Missouri - Kansas City and Wichita State.
Robertson said she relishes the opportunity to learn from and play for a hall of fame coach in Sherri Coale, head coach of the Sooners women's program, and expects to play the 2-guard position where she will be looked upon to create plays and make things happen.
"OU has a strong women's program and I really like the coaches," said Robertson. "It just felt like a good fit. It was really helpful to make the decision before my senior year because I don't have to worry about it anymore or spend so much time on the phone. Now that I know where I am going I can focus on my last year in high school."
Robertson, the 2017 Gatorade Player of the Year, averaged 24.3 points per game last season while adding 5.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.9 steals average per outing. She hopes to finish her high school career with a state title, having come up one game short in the 2017 season. She is competing this summer with Kansas United who will be competing this weekend in the Adidas Uprising Summer Championships in Atlanta before heading to Oklahoma City for the MAYB Nationals August 4-6.
