Millbrook High School point guard Kai Crutchfield verbally committed to North Carolina State University on Tuesday.

Crutchfield, a member of Millbrook's Class of 2017, stands at 5-foot-9. Millbrook coach Chris East confirmed the news of her commitment.

"She sat down with her mom and dad and talked about all the schools. Every time they talked about it, NC State kept coming out on top," East said. "I talked to Kai and she said she felt very comfortable ... She said she felt at home."

Last season, Crutchfield started for the Wildcats as a freshman, helping the team to a 24-4 overall record, including a share of the Cap 8 4-A Conference title.

"Kai has great court vision and is a very impressive player. She does a little bit of everything for us," said East. "She's one of our top scorers, she gets rebounds, she takes tough defensive assignments. I think it is a tremendous honor to get to coach her for four years."

Millbrook advanced to the N.C. High School Athletic Association Eastern Regional where it lost to Hillside, 70-55.

Crutchfield averaged 12.5 points, 4 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game last season. Her performance earned her all-conference and all-district honors. East said she will only get better too.

"Kai is constantly working on her game. Every time I have seen her over the summer she has gotten better. She is always in the gym," he said. "You know she's definitely committed to it. This was one of her dreams and goals and she achieved it, and I think that's really cool."
