Choctaw star point guard Aliyah Llanusa is remaining close to home.

Llanusa announced Wednesday that she has committed to Central Oklahoma, choosing the Bronchos after a breakout senior season.

Llanusa led the Yellowjackets to the area tournament, falling a win shy of the state tournament. She had a ton of state experience in her career, playing in three tournaments. She helped Choctaw win the Class 6A state title in 2017.

She had interest from multiple Division I schools as well.

She is the younger sister of Oklahoma women’s basketball player Ana Llanusa.
