WINDTHORST, TX (KAUZ) -

For three years we've been waiting to see where super-talented Windthorst point guard Tatum Veitenheimer would be spending her college career, and Tuesday we got the answer!

She announced on her Twitter feed that she has committed to play for the Oklahoma Sooners. Oklahoma was 23-10 this season, reaching the second round of the NCAA Tournament as a #6 seed.

On Monday, she wrote another message on her Twitter thanking all of the schools that had recruited her, including Texas, Texas A&M, UCLA, TCU, Iowa State and Missouri. 

"In the recruiting process it's exciting when you're offered a scholarship," Veitenheimer wrote. "It could make a recruit want to scream from the rooftop, then rush to choose a school. I am glad I did not scream or rush. It was never about the recruiting hype. It was more about understanding the right fit."

Tatum averaged 27.1 points, 5.3 assists and 7.1 steals per game, leading the Texoma area in all three categories.

She's a multi-sport star for the Trojanettes, excelling in volleyball, softball and track when she's not on the basketball court.

She also stars for Texas Elite Adidas alongside several other Division I commits.

    Many Egyptian Christians feel left out of World Cup experience because of belief that the nation's team and youth programs discriminate.
