Lady Seminoles sign two local standouts

November 10, 2004

 Albany - The Florida State women's basketball team was busy signing two players from south Georgia.

The Lady Seminoles picking up one of the top power forwards in the nation in Westover's Cayla Moore.

With still her senior season to play, Moore already owns the school record for the Lady Patriots in career rebounds.

Cayla, who is also a state champion in track and field, has wanted to attend Florida State since attending camps during her middle school days.

And on Wendesday her dream finally came true.

Cayla Moore "Since like sixth grade. I have always loved the school and it is just a blessing for me to be able to go to my top choice."

 Joining Cayla Moore in Tallahassee is Terrell County's Tanae Davis.

Davis is listed as one of the top ten shooting guards in the nation.

Last season, Tanae Davis averaged 17 points a game in leading the Lady Greenwave to the AA state championship game.

Westover guard Jada Frazier was also signing a Division I scholarship.

Frazier is on her way to the Big Easy to play at the University of New Orleans which is a member of the Sun Belt Conference.

As a junior, Jada Frazier averaged 14 points and six rebounds a game and this seaon her teammates have elected her team captain of a Lady Patriot team that made it to the final four last spring.

Jada Frazier said "I love the conference that they are playing in. I feel like it is going to be a great challenge moving from high school and it will definitely be a different level with the conference that they play in."

One team looking to beat Westover for the Region 1-AAA title is Worth County.

One of the stars for that Lady Ram team, Taylor Youngblood, finalizing her college plans.

Youngblood signing with Georgia Southern University.

An all-region performer, Taylor Youngblood chose Georgia Southern because of its location to her Sylvester home and the fact she will have the chance to compete for playing time right away.

Taylor Youngblood said "I am looking forward to going to being a Lady Eagle. I am hoping for someplaying time. That is what interested me more than anything is to be able to go over there and play as a freshman."

Taylor Youngblood averaged 18 points and 8 rebounds a game last season South Georgia also has plenty of great boys basketball players.

 Lowndes forward Terrance Vinson signed with Virginia Tech on Wednesday.  The 6'8" Vinson averaged 10 points and 9 rebounds a game as a junior.
