BLAKELY, Geo. (WTVY) - It was a big day for Early County basketball standout Makayla Timpson as she put pen to paper and signed with Florida State.

The Seminoles getting a versatile player in Timpson who has played anywhere on the court from point guard to center.

Timpson, a top 50 player in the country, was dominant in her junior year for the Bobcats averaging over 22 points and 10 rebounds per game.

She’s ready to test her talents down in Tallahassee.

“They’ve been there since the eighth grade. Coach Sue, Coach Joy, and Coach Brooke, they are some good people and it’s never an opportunity you can miss out on,” said Timpson. “I can see myself as a stretch three and expand my game from the perimeter a little bit and just develop me and get me stronger so I can be a good player at Florida State.”
