Tucsonans Kiya Dorroh and Kamryn Doty, formerly of Sabino who led the Sabercats to the 3A state title last season, have signed their national letter of intent at their respective schools, Missouri and Elon.
Dorroh and Doty are entering their senior seasons at AZ Compass, a prep school in Chandler.
Dorroh, a 6-1 forward, is the No. 47 overall recruit in the Class of 2021, according to ESPNW, and the top-ranked player from Arizona.
As a junior last season, Dorroh averaged 15.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.3 steals per game. She received first-team honors for Max Preps Arizona All-State and Arizona 3A All-Region.
A top-10 ranked wing player nationally, Dorroh chose Mizzou over North Carolina, Nebraska, Vanderbilt and Texas. Outside of basketball, Dorroh is a three-time academic honor roll recipient and has participated in the African-American Career Fair for High Achievers multiple times.
“I chose Mizzou because of the amazing family atmosphere that the coaches and players made me feel the very first time I stepped on campus,” said Dorroh in a Missouri press release. “I’m excited to play and practice against the best, and I look forward to growing as a basketball player and as a woman.”
Doty, who is headed to Elon, N.C., next season, is a two-time all-region selection and was the 3A Defensive Player of the Year last season. She has scored more than 1,000 points in her career.
“Kam has a passion for the game that is immediately evident when watching her play,” Elon coach Charlotte Smith said in a release. “She stays in the gym working on her craft and is determined to be great. Her competitiveness and will to win are contagious.
“Kam has already developed a strong skill set at the point guard position. She has tremendous court vision and she understands how to score from all three levels. Kam has the ability to make the game easier for her teammates.”
