Oklahoma State has reportedly tapped into the transfer market and pulled two of new head coach Jacie Hoyt’s former players at UMKC to join the Cowgirls.
Guards Naomie Alnatas and Landry Williams both announced their commitments via social media on Sunday.
Both played for Hoyt at UMKC. Oklahoma State hired Hoyt last month to replace Jim Littell as head coach.
Alnatas is a grad transfer and has one year of eligibility remaining.
One of Alnatas’ commitment photos included Williams, who announced her commitment to OSU on Instagram.
Oklahoma State has already lost five players to the transfer portal, including last year’s leading scorer, Lauren Fields.
Alnatas averaged 18.6 points per game last season for the Roos, as she earned All-Summit League First Team selection for the second straight season. In 2020-21 she averaged 16 points per game.
This is her sixth season of college basketball. She spent three seasons at UMKC, including a an injury shortened 2019-20. She spent two seasons at Iowa Western Community College, with the second season being a redshirt season.
Williams was a freshman from Tulsa, Okla., who joined the Roos after a standout career in Oklahoma high school basketball.
Williams’ commitment brings her home. Her mother, Megan, played basketball at Oklahoma State. Her father, Shawn, played basketball at Tulsa.
