TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – Florida State women’s basketball head coach Sue Semrau announced the addition of Morgan Toles on Friday.
Toles, a 5-9 point guard from Fayetteville, Ga., started 52 games for Auburn from 2009-11 and led the SEC in assists (5.15) last season.
“We are extremely excited to add Morgan to the Seminole family,” Semrau said. “She fits in perfectly with our team. She is super quick on both ends of the floor, has phenomenal court vision and knows how to score. Her leadership qualities and experience will mesh well with our program.”
Toles averaged 8.6 ppg in addition to her conference-leading assist numbers and started 24 of 27 games for Auburn in 2010-11. She had a double-double (10 points and 10 assists) versus Jacksonville State on Dec. 30, 2010.
“Florida State was the perfect fit for me to continue my basketball career,” Toles said. “I’m looking forward to the next two years of playing for the Garnet and Gold. I’m really excited about it.”
During her freshman season with the Tigers in 2009-10, Toles averaged 7.6 ppg and 4.4 apg en route to capturing SEC All-Freshman Team honors.
As a prep star, Toles was ranked the No. 4 point guard and No. 27 overall prospect by ESPN Hoopgurlz in the 2009 Class. She was a two-time Fayette County MVP and two-time First Team All-Georgia selection at Sandy Creek High School.
Toles is cleared to participate in practice with the Seminoles. Absent a waiver of the transfer rules from the NCAA, Toles would be required to fulfill a transfer year in residence at FSU before becoming eligible to participate in competition. Toles will have two years of eligibility remaining.
She comes from an athletic family, as her father, Alvin Toles, played linebacker at Tennessee from 1981-84, and her brother, Andrew, was a fourth-round selection by the Florida Marlins in the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft.
