CHAMPAIGN -- The top high school girl's basketball player in Champaign will not, as many had hoped, stay in town for college.
Tori McCoy, the 6-foot-4 star from St. Thomas More High School, verbally committed to Ohio State in a ceremony at the school on Monday.
The senior had an offer from Illinois, as well as Baylor, Tennessee, Marquette, and South Carolina. At the ceremony, she had two hats on the table -- Ohio State's and South Carolina's. She visited the Gamecocks this past weekend.
