Twins Kayla and Chayla Cheadle, seniors from Rock Bridge High in Columbia, Mo., have orally committed to play volleyball and basketball at Kansas University, the Columbia Tribune reports.
Chayla, a 5-foot-11 guard, averaged 10.8 points while hitting 45 percent of her three-pointers for Rock Bridge’s Class 5 state championship team. Kayla, a 6-1 middle blocker, was named all-region as a junior. She also plays basketball.
“We wanted to go to school together,” Chayla Cheadle told the Tribune. “This is the place for us.”
Missouri and Alabama also offered scholarships to both players.
“We could still get away from home but still be really close to our family in Kansas City,” Kayla Cheadle told the Tribune. “We could still be independent away from home but still have each other there, too.”
