Girls Hoops: Grandview Prep G Neydja Petithomme commits to Auburn 

By Anthony Chiang

Neydja Petithomme did not want to talk about the recruiting process in early January.

When asked which schools she was considering, the Grandview Prep guard did not want disclose the information. But this week, she made her final decision public.

Petithomme verbally committed to Auburn, choosing the Tigers over Kansas and Fordham, according to Grandview Prep coach Gary Downing.

After missing offseason practices and the first game of her senior season because of a knee injury, the 5-foot-8 shifty guard is averaging 14.4 points and 7.6 assists per game this year. Petithomme has teamed up with center Vionise Pierre-Louis, an Oklahoma verbal commit, to help the Pride finish with a 16-2 regular-season record.
