All-Met Olivia Ekponé commits to Texas A&M track

Olivia Ekponé, a senior at Northwest and a two-time All-Met runner of the year, verbally committed to Texas A&M on Tuesday. One of the most sought-after sprinting recruits in the country, she had whittled her list of top schools to three -- Louisiana State, Florida State and Texas A&M -- before finally picking the Aggies. Texas A&M has won the last two men's and women's NCAA outdoor national championships.
 
"The coaches are so sweet," said Ekponé, who was third in the 200 at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in Singapore in August in 23.75 seconds. "A lot of other places were trying to sell me on their school. [Texas A&M] cares about helping me reach my goals."
