Sania Feagin Joins South Carolina Women's Basketball

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina head women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley announced that Sania Feagin (pronounced FEE-gin) has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend the University and play for the Gamecocks. The Ellenwood, Ga., native will have four years of eligibility beginning with the 2021-22 academic year.
“Sania was a priority for us because she is an incredible basketball player, no doubt about it,” Staley said. “She has a pretty darn good skill set for her height, and we’ll be able to use her versatility. Sania can put the ball on the floor or play with her back to the basket. She can rebound and push the ball down the floor; and she’s a shot blocker. She is definitely one that is the complete package, and we can’t wait for her to get here and light that fire under her to have it every time she steps on the floor.”
A 6-foot-3 forward, Feagin is ranked No. 4 overall in the Class of 2021 and the top forward in the group. Earlier this week she was among the 50 players named to the watch list for 2021 Jersey Mike’s Naismith Trophy for High School Girls Player of the Year.
After leading her Forest Park High School team to the 2020 6A state championship, Feagin was named the 2020 Georgia Gatorade Player of the Year and 6A First-Team All-State by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. She averaged a double-double as a senior with 17.2 points and 10.4 rebounds to go with her 3.6 blocks per game.
Feagin enters her senior season at Forest Park High School having already scored over 1,200 points in her career. She was an honorable mention all-state selection as a freshman (2018) and picked up second-team recognition for her sophomore season. She was one of 18 finalists for USA Basketball’s 2019 Women’s U16 National Team.
Feagin joins Bree Hall (Dayton, Ohio/Wayne HS) in Staley’s 2021 signing class.
