Kennedy Catholic star basketball player Alex Ricketts made her commitment to Akron official recently when she signed her letter of intent. She received a full scholarship to play hoops and is the third Division I girls basketball player to sign along with Villa Maria’s Karlee McBride to Indiana and Mercyhurst Prep standout Brenna Robbins to Longwood.
Ricketts has been a big part of Kennedy’s recent success. She averaged 13.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 3.5 steals per game as a junior. The Golden Eagles dominated Class A last year to win the District 10 championship and will be a heavy favorite to repeat this year.
