ATLANTA – Danielle Hamilton-Carter, a 6-4 forward from Stockholm, Sweden, has signed a financial aid agreement with Georgia Tech, and will enroll at the Institute in the fall and play basketball for the Yellow Jackets.
“We are so excited about Danielle joining our Yellow Jacket family,” head coach MaChelle Joseph said. “On the court, off the court, and in the community she is the epitome of what we have worked so hard for our program to represent.”
Currently a member of 08 Stockholm, Hamilton-Carter will play for the Swedish National Team this summer. In 2008, Hamilton-Carter represented her country at the U18 European Championships in Slovakia, averaging 9.3 points and 6.7 rebounds as a starter. In all, she will add over five years of international experience to the Yellow Jacket roster.
“Her international experience on the Swedish National Team will help her transition easily to the level of play in the Atlantic Coast Conference,” Joseph said. “Our staff believes Danielle is one of the best post players we have seen in the class of 2009 and we are anxious to see the impact she will have on our team this season.”
She joins a class, rated as high as No. 18 in the nation, which already includes 5-9 Sharena Taylor from Pontiac, Mich., 6-2 Kennesaw, Ga., native Jasmine Blain and 6-5 center Shayla Bivins of Jacksonville Fla.
