High School class of 2019 prospect Teisha Hyman a 5-foot-10 guard from Greenburgh,New York in Westchester County receives an official offer to attend The University of South Florida as a student-athlete.

Head Coach Jose Fernandez was doing his usual yearly spring recruiting in North Carolina at the Deep South Event in Raleigh when he observed a guard prospect playing for the Westchester Hoopers Premier travel club team. When his evaluation was complete Fernandez approached the team coaches inquiring about Hyman, when he was told she was just an 8th grader he was shocked.

Hyman played in the 17-and-under classification at the Deep South Event and performed well enough to receive a scholarship offer to the Tampa, Florida school that made it to the 2nd round of the 2015 NCAA Tournament and finished the season 27-8.Hyman has played varsity basketball at Woodlands High School for the last two seasons
