    I know there is a larger transfer thread but I thought this could focus more on potential transfers to Texas.

    Karisma Ortiz, a 6’ guard who played her freshman season at Penn State, is taking a visit to Texas. ESPN #54 in 2018 class. Karisma attended Archbishop Mitty High School (Haley Jones' school) and averaged 15 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists as a senior. Got 22 starts in 29 games at Penn State (25.5 mpg), averaged 3.6 ppg and 4.1 rpg.

    Here's another Tweet about Ortiz from Sue Phillips who was her high school coach at Arch Bishop Mitty in California. Phillips is considered one of the best high school basketball coaches in the nation. Phillips was the coach of Haley Jones, the #1 recruit from the 2019 class.

    Our staff has been connected with Sue Phillips for several years, so Phillips has probably provided our staff with a positive report on Ortiz.

    Interesting coincidence that Karisma was listed right behind Joanne Allen-Taylor in the 2018 ESPN rankings.

    Very impressive high school tape. She may be the big point or two guard that we have been missing lately. Her playing with Celeste will really help with our size along the 1/2/3 positions.

    But, she has to sit a year. I believe.

    Since there was a coaching change at Penn State that has not been confirmed yet.
