5’9″ Combo Guard TAYLER BENNETT from Long beach, CA ( ST. Anthony H.S. ) ended her recruiting process earlier this week when she made her pledge to become a RICE University Owl and play for new Head  Coach Tina Langley .

Tayler chose Rice over New Mexico,UC Santa Barbara & Loyola Marymount University.

Her father Ray and Asst. Coach at ST. Anthony H.S. gave his thoughts on what Tayler brings to the court :

"Tayler is a player who fills the stat sheet. She can shoot it,
put it on the deck & create for teammates. She gets in the passing lanes
defensively & rebounds as well. "

Off the Court 
" The gorgeous campus.
All of the resources I'll need to succeed in my Major.
Their Architecture program ranks in the top 3 in the country.
Love the support the alumni shows towards school & its current students.
A degree from RICE carries a lot of weight. "

" I was able to develop a great relationship with Coach Tina Langley & her staff.
I was able to see her vision for the program & myself as a combo guard. 
She's recruited & developed a lot of successful athletes, I know she'll do the same at RICE University.
I love the style of play that she plans to implement. 
I know my game will rise to the next level with the training & development that    the RICE staff will provide. "
