McGregor senior Essance Porter isn’t the biggest frontcourt player around, but her big heart has landed her an opportunity to play college basketball.

Porter signed with Simpson College on Wednesday, an NCAA Division III school in Indianola, Iowa. The 5-foot-5 forward has ranked among Central Texas’ top rebounders for the past several seasons. As a senior in 2016-17, she averaged 14.7 points and 14.7 boards while landing second-team Super Centex recognition.
