Greenville, S.C.--Auburn women’s basketball coach Nell Fortner has picked up a third verbal commitment for the 2010 signee class from five-foot-ten inch guard Camille Glymph who plays for J.L. Mann High School.
A three-time Class 3A All-State player who was a standout on state championship teams her freshman and sophomore seasons, Glymph tells Inside the Auburn Tigers she chose Auburn over offers from Clemson and Georgia Tech.
A combo guard who can play the point or shooting guard positions, Glymph is also a standout for the Carolina Cougars AAU team, which won a tournament over the weekend in Atlanta.
“I really like the coaching staff and the players at Auburn,” she says. “I got a chance to interact with them at the elite camp I attended there. You can tell they are real close--it’s like a family. I went to other elite camps, but never got that feeling anywhere else.”
Glymph performed well at Auburn’s camp in late June and later got an offer from the Tigers.
A good student who takes some honors courses in high school, she notes that she is interested in majoring in something along the lines of health sciences in college, but hasn’t made a final decision on that yet.
Glymph says the strengths of her game are three-point shooting, ball-handling and her ability to drive the ball all the way to the basket.
She joins 5-7 guard Courtney Strain of Woodland, Ala., High School and 6-5 post player Peyton Davis of Mortimer Jordan High in Morris, Ala., as rising high school seniors who have committed to sign with the Tigers.
