  • Epps de-commits from Louisville

    Marion County High School Lady Knight Makayla Epps broke off her commitment with the University of Louisville recently.
    "At the time of my commitment I was only 15 years old," Epps said. "Now, a couple of years later I realized that I wanted to make 100 percent sure since I will be spending four or five years there."
    Epps noted that the Lady Cardinals are still where she may end up playing her college ball, but she has now reopened her options. She also noted that another school has made an offer to her, but she has not made any decisions.
