Kansas' women's basketball program has landed a first-team Parade All-American in Charisse Sampson, a 5-10 shooting guard from Los Angeles Washington Prep High School.
Sampson, who, on Wednesday signed a national letter of intent with KU, was named Los Angeles city player of the year as well as Southern California player of the year. She also won the state's Cheryl Miller award.
"Charisse is just a good, good person. In terms of talent I think her accolades speak for themselves," KU coach Marian Washington said today. "She exhibits great shooting range, quickness and is a strong rebounder. But what really sets her apart and makes her one of the elite is her tremendous court sense. She has a real feel for the game."
Sampson will compete in the Kodak All-America game on Saturday. It will be televised by ESPN.
