Denson, a 6-3 center out of Winter Haven High School in Winter Haven, Fla., is considered by most recruiting services to be the top post player coming out of the state of Florida and one of the best players in the country in the class of 2005.
“We are extremely excited about signing Brittany Denson to play at the University of Miami,” said Labati. “Not only is she one of the best players in the state of Florida, but she’s arguably one of the best players in the country.”
Last season at Kissimmee Osceola High School, Denson averaged 12 points and 17 rebounds per game. After transferring from Kissimmee Osceola following her junior season, Denson will play her senior year Winter Haven High School under head coach LaDawn Gibson.
“Brittany is a very athletic player with a determination to be one of the best,” said Gibson of Denson. “She has high expectations for herself and with her work ethic she will definitely surpass those goals.”
