ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Kayli Keough, a 6-foot-2 forward, has signed a Grant-In-Aid to play women's basketball at UCF, head coach Joi Williams announced Thursday. The Land O' Lakes native is transferring after spending the past two seasons at Florida State. She will be eligible to play for the Knights beginning in the 2011-12 season.

Keough has played in 33 games over the past two seasons for FSU and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in both campaigns, including a trip to the regional finals in 2009-10. She averaged 2.2 points and 1.5 rebounds per game a season ago, hitting 45.5 percent of her three-point attempts.

A 2008 graduate of Land O' Lakes High School, Keough was named a Sporting News All-American nominee as a senior. She was also a first-team all-state selection and was named Tampa Tribune Player of the Year and North Suncoast Player of the Year. Keough was ranked the 30th-best power forward in the Class of 2008 by ESPNU's HoopGurlz.
