Jaelyn Bates commits to Lobos
ALBUQUERUE, N.M.- Jaeyln Bates from Volcano Vista high school committed to the Lobos via Twitter.
“There’s a lot of relief once I announced it just like keeping a big secret for everyone, like once you get that Supergirl, it’s like a whole bunch of weight is lifted off your shoulders,” said Bates.
Bates won a state title with Volcano Vista and looks forward to playing for the UNM women’s basketball team.
“It was mostly just a bond that I had with them like throughout since I was a little kid, even before Bradberry, I had such a close bond with Coach Sanchez and her former players. Even now, I have a pretty close bond with Bradberry and his current players right now,” she said.
Beyond happy to finally announce i have verbally committed to UNM! I can’t wait to start my next chapter as a lobo and represent JB, Papa Brown, and all of New Mexico!?? pic.twitter.com/NyE6cCqRr4— Jae Bates (@JAEB8S) July 2, 2021
