High school girls basketball: Moore's Raychael Harjo commits to Central Florida

Central Florida women's basketball nabbed a commitment from Oklahoma for the 2021 signing class.

Moore’s Raychael Harjo announced Tuesday her commitment to the Knights, via Twitter. 

She thanked her family, coaches and the Arkansas Banshee organization -- a national girls basketball program -- for believing in her and pushing her to be “the best version of herself.”

The 6-foot-2 forward chose Central Florida over various schools including Tulsa, Missouri State and Texas Arlington. 

As a junior, Harjo averaged 12.9 points and 6.8 rebounds to help lead Moore girls basketball to the Class 6A state tournament, the program’s first state appearance in 22 years. She was named to The Oklahoman’s Big All City third team.
