University of Alabama women’s golf coach Mic Potter announced the signing of Spain Park High School senior Hannah Collier to a national letter-of-intent on Friday.

Collier won the Alabama High School Athletic Association Class 6A individual championship in 2009.

“It’s really good and refreshing to have another player from the state of Alabama joining our team next year in Hannah Collier,” Potter said. “Hannah is the state high school champion and one of the better players to come out of the state of Alabama in quite some time.”

Collier also won the Southeast Junior Golf Tour Vestavia Classic in 2009 and earned victories at two American Junior Golf Association events in 2007. Her Spain Park team took the state title behind her strong performance in 2009, and she holds the Alabama High School Athletics Association state scoring record.

“Coach Potter was the main reason I signed with Alabama,” Collier said. “He’s a great coach with a long history of winning and producing great players. I also really like the school and was impressed with their facilities. I just like everything about Alabama, and I’m really excited to get started next fall.”

Collier joins Jessica Schall and Stephanie Meadow to complete the Crimson Tide’s 2010-11 recruiting class. Alabama has only two seniors on this year’s team that finished the fall season ranked No. 9 in that nation.
