NORMAN — Northeast Academy senior guard T'ona Edwards verbally committed to Sherri Coale's Oklahoma squad and will sign with the Sooners for next season, Vikings coach Londaryl Perry told The Oklahoman.

Perry said Coale called Tuesday to offer Edwards a scholarship.

Edwards gives the Sooners four newcomers for next season, joining Carl Albert guard Gioya Carter, Brentwood, Tenn., guard Derica Wyatt and Ames, Iowa, forward Shaya Kellogg.

Edwards' commitment comes only days after her Northeast teammate, 2014 guard prospect LaNesia Williams, pledged to play for OU.

Edwards and Williams helped lead Northeast to a perfect 30-0 record and the Class 2A state championship last month. Edwards averaged 16.7 points and seven rebounds per game as a senior.
