METROSPORTSREPORT.COM- CEDAR RAPIDS, IA-- Ariel Sneed of Kirkwood Community College has signed a national letter-of-intent to play basketball at Southern Mississippi University next season. Sneed, a 6-foot sophomore from Harvey, Ill., was named a third team NJCAA Division II All-American last season after averaging 10 points and six rebounds for Kirkwood.

"I chose Southern Miss because as soon as I touched ground on its campus, I felt a sense of belonging," she said in a story posted on the Southern Mississippi website. "I received nothing but positive vibes while there the entire time, and it was just a feeling that was right. "Spending time with the coaching staff and players just reassured me that this was where I was meant to be! I couldn't be happier with my decision."
