Unson (No. 18, 2013) commits to Pepperdine

Friday, December 2, 2011

Andrea Unson of Murrieta, Calif., has given a verbal commitment to play college golf at Pepperdine in the fall of 2013. Unson considered a long list of schools, including Notre Dame, Northwestern, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, TCU, UCLA, Denver, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, USC, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wake Forest.

“The primary factor I considered was location,” Unson said. “I want four years of pleasant golfing weather year-round, and California is the best for that.”

Unson also was sold on working with Pepperdine head coach Laurie Gibbs.

“She didn't hesitate to show her eagerness and enthusiasm to have me be a part of her team ever since I visited her,” she said.

Unson has one career AJGA victory, and earned two more top 10s in the past year.
