Even a torn ACL couldn't stop Kalamazoo Central standout Morasha Wiggins from earning a fifth star on the recruiting trail.

Her 24-points-per-game average during her sophomore season and big summer on the Amateur Athletic Union circuit helped propel Wiggins into the national spotlight. ESPN ranked her as 50th on their list of women's basketball recruits for the class of 2021 and with 40 division one offers, she had a tough decision to make. Ultimately, Wiggins to committed to University of North Carolina.

"Basically just feeling like I'm home away from home. The coaching staff there was really nice to me it was kind of like an extended family and the girls there were really cool," Wiggins said.

The style of play that the Tar Heels like to employ also helped with the decision. Wiggins has been in an up-tempo offense with the Maroon Giants during her high school career and that is something she was looking for at the next level.

"For me, it was the style of play they really like to get up and down the court and teams in the ACC play the same way. So, it was getting up and down the court and getting to play the best of the best every night," Wiggins said.

With her commitment behind her, Wiggings can focus on her senior season at Kalamazoo Central. After sitting out half of her junior year with a knee injury she feels she still has something to prove with her sights set on a Michigan Miss Basketball trophy.
