Former IU guard Taylor Agler announced Tuesday via Twitter and Instagram she will continue her academic and college basketball career at Texas Tech ?University.

The sophomore announced March 10 she would be leaving the IU women’s basketball program.

“Excited I get the chance to continue my playing career at Texas Tech University! Your newest Lady Raider,” Agler said on her Instagram account.

She will join Texas Tech Assistant Coach Brandi Poole, who was a part of the IU staff that recruited Agler under Curt Miller. Poole worked under Miller for 11 seasons at Bowling Green and two seasons at IU. She now works under Texas Tech Coach Candi Whitaker.

Agler considered several schools of different levels, her father Brian Agler said. She visited Dayton, which just made the NCAA Elite 8, along with Texas Tech and Eastern Illinois, which her brother coaches at. Agler will sit out the 2015-16 season due to transfer rules.
