FULLERTON, CA - Incoming Cal State Fullerton women's basketball head coach Marcia Foster announced Wednesday that the Titans have signed Jaslyn Cosey to a National Letter of Intent to continue her basketball career in Fullerton beginning with the 2009-10 season.
"We are very excited about Jaslyn choosing to pursue her educational and basketball goals as a Titan," Foster said. "She brings a unique versatility to the guard position. A strong combo guard, she can score inside and out as well as handle the point. Her leadership capabilities are beyond her years.
"Besides being a very talented player, Jaslyn excels in the classroom and fits perfectly within the team's mission of striving for academic excellence. Along with our other early signees, Jaslyn will contend for playing time immediately. Expectations are high for the class of 2009."
Cosey joins previously announced signees Lauren Bushong, Simone Lutu, and Mya Olivier, who each signed letters of intent during the fall.
Cosey, a 5-7 guard out of Millikan HS in Long Beach, Calif., was a first-team All-Moore League and second-team All-CIF Division I-AA selection as a senior for coach Lorene Morgan, averaging better than nine points, four assists, four rebounds, and four steals per game while helping the Rams to a 24-5 overall record, a 9-3 mark in league play, and a trip to the CIF Southern Section I-AA quarterfinals.
She spent the better part of her first two prep seasons at Lawndale HS where she was a first-team All-Pioneer League performer as a freshman after averaging 14 points and 4.8 rebounds per game to go with four steals per contest.
Cosey averaged just under 17 points during the first part of her sophomore season with the Cardinals before transferring to Millikan HS, where she began her career with the Rams by helping them to a share of the Moore League title and the finals of the CIF Division I-AA tournament as a junior.
