Kentucky State University women’s basketball announced the signing of guard Sierra James to its 2017 recruiting class on Friday.
“Sierra (James) is a brilliant and versatile player, said head coach Terrance Slater. “She plays multiple positions on both sides of the ball which I think will translate nicely into our system. We are excited to have her in our program.”
