LARAMIE, Wyoming — Forward Rachelle Tucker, of Pierce, Nebraska, has verbally committed to play for Wyoming.

The 6-foot-2 Tucker is entering her senior year at high school and is the second recruit for the 2015 Cowgirl class. She joins 6-1 forward Daley Handy of Maize, Kansas, as verbal commitments for the Cowgirls.

The earliest a basketball player can sign a national letter of intent is November.
