Houston Cougars announce signing of 6'5" Daphane White

POSTED: April 15, 2020 -- 5:00 p.m. CT

Wednesday afternoon, the Houston Cougars women's basketball team announced the signing of 6'5" Daphane White to its 2019-'20 class.

White attended Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College the past two seasons. She averaged 15.7 points, 11.0 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks per game during the 2019-'20 season and earned Second Team NJCAA All-American honors.

White graduated from St. Martin High School in Ocean Springs, MS and was a five-star prospect in high school. She was ranked 45th nationally via espnW's HoopGurlz Class of 2018 rankings. White averaged 25.8 points, 14.7 rebounds, and 5.7 blocks per game her senior season in high school.

She signed with Mississippi State and appeared in Mississippi State's three games during an overseas trip in 2018. She averaged 3.3 points and 4.0 rebounds in 7.3 minutes per game. However, she decided to transfer from Mississippi State to attend Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

In January 2019, White told WLOX in Perkinston, MS: “I just felt like it wasn't - I didn't like it there. I just felt like I wanted to start over with my whole process of choosing better. Choosing what I wanted to do, a college that I really wanted to go to, where I fit in. I came (to Gulf Coast) to just start the process over."

White's addition to Houston's roster would give the Cougars 5 newcomers in the Class of 2020. White joins 5'9" juco guard Ca'Leyah Burrell and incoming freshmen Laila Blair, 5'9", Waller HS; Kamryn Jones, 6'2", Magnolia West HS; and Tae'lor Purvis, 5'9", Hightower HS.
