Lance White’s program received big news on Wednesday as they’ve added a potential big piece to their 2020-21 basketball rotation.
The Pitt women’s program received word from the NCAA that transfer guard Destiny Strother has been ruled immediately eligible for the upcoming season. She joins Jayla Everett as the second transfer this off-season to be ruled eligible this season.
The sophomore guard transferred to Pitt this off-season from Marquette. While Carmen-Ainsworth High School in Flint, Michigan, Strother was rated a four-star prospect after \three consecutive All-State honors, including first team as a junior.
Strother, who finished as her schools All-Time women’s scorer, led her team to two Saginaw Valley Championships and two District Championships.
“I’m so excited Destiny will be able to play for us this season,” said Pitt head coach Lance White. “The thing that separates Destiny is her ability to shoot the three-pointer. She has a really high basketball IQ and she absolutely loves to compete. She will add some much needed depth to our guard position and is a phenomenal teammate as well.”
Strother will have three seasons of eligibility remaining at Pitt.
