Steele star, Elena Gumbs, has formally announced what some have known for months; she is going to Rice to play basketball!
The TeamXpress point guard reportedly verballed to Rice after the viewing period in April but held the news close until recently.
Gumbs is an amazing athlete. Do not be surprised if she runs track and excels in that sport as well. Gumbs was one of the best long distance runners in the state as a freshman and sophomore.
Gumbs is a success story and an inspiration to the vertically challenged players in the city. Anyone knowing Elena will understand her will to succeed and her enormous confidence. This self belief has led to Gumbs, a 5'4 guard, to being among a very small percentage of small guards that get an opportunity to play Division 1 basketball. It also helps that she is reportedly a brilliant student.
Congrats to the Gumbs Family. Congrats Elena!
