Michaela Fletcher, of Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, has given a verbal commitment to play college golf at Mississippi State in 2014.
Since Fletcher lives in South Africa, she did not make any other unofficial or officials visits. So when Mississippi State contacted her and she met the coaches, she knew that Mississippi State was the school for her.
“I feel I will be able to get along with the coaches easily and they could really help me build my game.,” Fletcher said. “I feel as though I could benefit greatly from their program and the school.”
Fletcher will graduate from Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High School in December, but will not join the team until the fall of 2014.
She is currently ranked sixth on the ladies order of merit in South Africa. Fletcher is also the South African Girls’ champion. She has both represented her country and province on multiple occasions.
