TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Alabama women’s golf head coach Mic Potter signed Cheyenne Knight, one of the country’s top junior golfers, to a national letter of intent Thursday.
“I am proud and excited that Cheyenne Knight has decided to join our Crimson Tide Women’s Golf family,” head coach Mic Potter said.
Knight, hailing from Aledo, Texas, plays for Aledo High School. She won the 2014 Texas 4A state golf individual title by shooting 144 over two rounds.
Ranked as the 24th-best golfer in the nation for the class of 2015 by Golfweek, Knight is a Rolex Junior All-American. Following her win in the Texas 4A State Tournament, she was named to the USA Today All-USA Girls Golf Team.
“Cheyenne is a tremendous player that will have an immediate impact on our program,” Potter said. “More importantly though, she is an outstanding young lady, and will fit in well with our team and the values we hold dear. Cheyenne is passionate about her golf game, and the University of Alabama, and you can’t ask for more than that as a coach.”
Knight finished 38th during stroke play at the 2014 USGA Girls’ Junior Championship with a two-round total of 148 (+7). She advanced to the round of 64 during match play. She won the 2014 American Junior Golf Association’s Valero Texas Open at 4-under 212, while she tied for fifth at the Rolex Girls Junior Championship at The Country Club of Rochester (N.Y.).
