Las Vegas, Nev.
Green Valley High School
Alexandra Kaui is moving from the West Coast to Oklahoma as the nation's No. 23 ranked recruit. She was named a Rolex All-American in 2011 and 2012, and won two AJGA events in 2011: the Las Vegas Junior Open and the Genesis Junior Championship. In addition, she boasts six top-10 finishes in AJGA events and 13 top-20 finishes. Kaui is also a three-time 4A NIAA High School State Individual Champion. Her lowest 18-hole score of 60 (-10) set a course record at the Los Prados Golf Course in her hometown of Las Vegas, Nev.
OU Head Coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell on Alexandra Kaui:
"Alexandra comes to us with a great playing experience. She had a great summer and finished her season by winning the high school state championship for the third time with a score of 6 under par. She's played in some of the best tournaments in the country and has done very well in them. We're anxious for her arrival next fall."
Colleyville Heritage High School
Neece, ranked No. 61 in her recruiting class by Golfweek, boasts four top-10 finishes and eight top-25 finishes in AJGA events, and has qualified for two U.S. Girls' Juniors. She received Colleyville Heritage’s freshman-, sophomore- and junior-of-the-year awards for golf and is also a member of the National Honor Society. Some of her top performances include winning the Texas Junior Golf Tour's Traditions Invitational, finishing in second place at the TJGT Red River Challenge and placing third at the TJGT Sooner Junior Major Championship.
OU Head Coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell on Maggie Neece:
"We're excited to have Maggie join us next August. She comes from a family of excellent golfers. Her father, Mike, was a great golfer and she has quickly progressed as a golfer as well. Maggie's best competitive round was recorded this past June in Dallas when she shot 65-75 to win the event by 6 shots. She is a passionate, competitive person who is ready to start college."
