Knights Add Transfer Asia Todd

ORLANDO ( – UCF head coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson announced an addition to the women's basketball program on Saturday with the signing of Asia Todd.
A native of Clayton, N.C., Todd was the all-time leading scorer at Clayton High School with more than 2,000 career points. A two-time 3A Greater Neuse River Conference Player of the Year, she averaged 24 points per game her senior season. As a junior, she set a Clayton High single-game record of 53 points and averaged 29 points per game on the season.

She joins the Knights after one season at Liberty, starting 25 games during her rookie campaign. She was the team's top three-point shooter, hitting 41.3 percent from beyond the arc, and was the fourth-leading scorer with 8.6 points per game. Liberty's first-ever ASUN All-Freshman Team honoree, she was also named to the ASUN All-Tournament team after averaging 18.0 PPG for the championship.

Todd joins the freshman trio of Colleen Bucknor, Maniya Custis and Ashton Verhulst, who all inked national letters of intent in November, along with Syracuse transfer Alisha Lewis, who signed in early June, as UCF's talented 2019-20 signing class. Bucknor, Custis and Verhulst were each among their respective state's nominees for the 2020 McDonald's All-American Games. Bucknor was also named the 2020 Miami Ms. Basketball and her Miami High squad captured the 2020 FHSAA Girls' 7A state championship. Custis was named the 2020 Burlington County Scholastic League Player of the Year. Verhulst was a two-time state champion as a member of the Bishop Miege squad in Kansas. Lewis, who joins the Knights after one season at Syacuse, was named the ninth-best point guard and 35th best overall player in the 2019 class according to espnW 100.
The Knights return four starters for the 2020-21 campaign, including third team all-conference selection Brittney Smith, rising seniors Masseny Kaba and Courtajia Sanders and rising junior Diamond Battles.
