Girls basketball: Douglass' Te'era Williams denied release by Grambling State
Douglass senior basketball standout Te’era Williams was denied a release from her letter of intent by Grambling State, her mother said.
Williams, who signed with Grambling State in November, requested the release in March after coach Donnita Rogers was fired. Lenora Love, Williams’ mother, said they are appealing Grambling’s denial but are also looking at junior colleges as a backup plan, starting with a Tuesday visit to Carl Albert State College in Poteau.
Williams wouldn’t need a release from Grambling to play at a junior college, and could transfer anywhere after one year.
Williams was The Oklahoman’s Little All-City Player of the Year after averaging 27.3 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and seven steals per game as a senior, when she led Douglass to its first state tournament appearance in 20 years.
