Class of 2016 guard Natalie Chou of Plano, Texas has verbally committed to Baylor, picking the Big 12 school over conference foe Texas.

At 5 feet 11 inches, Chou will bring Baylor length and perimeter shooting at both wing spots.  She is a big guard who is capable making shots from behind the arc and in the midrange.  As a member of the U17 USA Basketball national team, Chou has international experience and should be able to use that as an asset early in her collegiate career. 

Chou, a four-star guard will be joined by five-star post Lauren Cox of Flower Mound, Texas and four-star guard Calveion Landrum of Waco, Texas. While the trio of Cox, Chou, and Landrum gives Baylor one of the best recruiting classes in the country, four-star wing Aaliyah Wilson of Muscogee, Okla., is currently considering joining the Baylor mix.

The Baylor class is in great shape with all three players being ranked in the top 26 spots of the ELITE 150.  The addition of Chou led to Baylor’s recruiting class ranking jumping up as well.
