On the Titan website today:

The University of Detroit Mercy women's basketball incoming freshmen class grew bigger after it was announced that head coach Bernard Scott and the Titans have inked guard Jiera Shears (Charlotte, N.C. / Hickory Ridge) to a National Letter of Intent.


As a Charlottean, I'm happy to see a local player heading to Motown. Jiera is pretty highly regarded here, one of two star players on the top ranked regional team that was state championship runner-up two years in a row. So she's a winner, and she's no academic slouch either, with a planned major in Mechanical Engineering.

Further info on Jiera:

While Shears is optimistic that Detroit Mercy can soon win at a high level, the school’s basketball program wasn’t the only thing that attracted her to the Michigan campus.
“The academics are really good,” Shears said. “And they have a great engineering program, which is what I have always wanted to go into.
“Also, they play my style of basketball; they love to shoot. It was really just a perfect fit, I believe.”
Shears said she chose Detroit Mercy after also considering Winthrop, St. Bonaventure, University of North Florida, Niagara and the University of Illinois-Chicago.
