"Kayla has all of the physical tools to be one of the greatest players I've had the privilege of coaching and to have ever played at Gonzaga. With her skill set, she can play any of four positions on the court. She is our best shot blocker, has great shooting range and in time could be our best rebounder and defensive stopper. If she continues to improve like she has so far--watch out!
