WMU women's basketball added a verbal commitment to its 2021 class, as forward Lauren Audino announced her pledge to the Broncos on Monday via Twitter.
I am excited to announce my verbal commitment to Western Michigan University! Thank you to my parents, coaches and friends who have helped shape me as a player and person both on and off the court. None of this would have been possible, without all of you by my side. #gobroncos pic.twitter.com/CR3Zc24Ixj— Lauren Audino (@lauren_audino) July 27, 2020
