Babbitt Commits to Golden Flashes


Mya Babbitt has known for some time what her college destination would be. Sunday, the 5-foot-8 junior shooting guard announced via twitter her commitment to Kent State. 

“We visited there in November and I just fell in love right away. We were there for three days and I just knew it could be a possibility,” Babbitt said of Kent State. “After I came home from that trip I just kept thinking about it every day and it just felt like home right from the start.”

Babbitt had a successful junior campaign leading the Patriots to a 27-1 record while recording a team leading 16.5 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. 

Her relationship with the Golden Flashes coaching staff grew stronger in the last six months. 

“At first I only talked to one of the assistants and then the entire staff started texting and calling.” she said. “ It’s just special when the coach texts and talks to you even after winning a high school game.”

While she announced her commitment Sunday afternoon, the Kent State staff knew of her commitment on Friday. 

“I told them on Friday, I texted them the night before and asked if we could talk and then 30 seconds after I told head coach (Todd Starkey) the entire staff texted me congratulations.”

 Babbitt chose Kent State over an offer from Omaha.
