The prospects of playing college basketball at a Division 1-A school were something that never truly appealed to Sabrina Drammis.
The Hilton Head Island High girls basketball star was more focused on the academic side of her future. That's why Drammis has decided to play for MIT next season and coach Sonia Raman. She will be enrolled in the computer science and electrical engineering program in the hopes of being involved in robotics, Seahawks coach Dave Greenberg said.
"Their coach followed Sabrina all summer from camp to camp hoping she would consider MIT as an option and that her credentials would be strong enough for her to be admitted -- and they were," Greenberg said. "Sabrina and her family are ecstatic about her being able to attend one of the best -- if not the best -- schools in the world as well as continuing her basketball career."
Drammis -- The Island Packet and The Beaufort Gazette's girls basketball Player of the Year -- chose the Engineers over Carnegie Mellon, Johns Hopkins, Emory, and Washington University in St. Louis.
She averaged 15.5 points, 8.2 rebounds, 6.2 steals and 2.2 assists for the Seahawks this season.
