Itawamba Community College has Eryka Williams on its radar early.
As Williams progressed during her high school career with the Starkville Lady Yellowjackets, ICC women's coach Nanci Gray was there every step of the way.
Gray's interest impressed Williams so much that she ended up signing with the Lady Indians on Friday in front of family, friends and coaches at the SHS library.
"She was on me day one since I started," Williams said of Gray. "I loved the way her attention was. She came to see me play every time. If she wasn't there, she would text me and say 'good game.' It was just good throughout the season."
