BEAUMONT, Texas — WIth the coronavirus outbreak affecting universities across the globe, schools were not aloud to have official visits with potential recruits. Making it hard for athletes such as Woodville's Jordyn Beaty to decide what jersey she should be wearing next season.
"After state, I got more offers and I was like wow, these are some big offers," Beaty said. "Then COVID-19 got really bad and I couldn't visit any of the girls or talk to anybody on the team so I had to go with what I know best."
What Beaty knew best, sits over 200 miles away from Woodville and is home to one of the most up and coming basketball programs in the Lone Star Conference, Texas A&M Commerce.
"I chose Texas A&M Commerce because it felt like home and it felt like it would be a great fit for me," Beatty said. "I was so happy I was crying."
Though Beaty knows she's off to bigger and better things, she promises never to forget her time in Woodville and everything she accomplished under head coach Troy Carrell.
"He helped me on my game and my grades," Beaty said. "He helped me on a lot of things and I'm really grateful."
