We brought you news last week that BYU women's basketball coach Jeff Judkins had received a national letter of intent from Kristine Fuller, a 6-foot guard from Clearwater, Fla. Monday, the Cougars announced three other signings. Here they are: * Micalee Orgon, a 6-2 forward from Kearns High has also signed with BYU. Orton played for three years on the Salt Lake Metro club team and was a second-team all-state and first-team all-region selection. She also lettered four years in volleyball, two years in track, and is an honors student. * Alta High's Mackenzi Morrison, a 5-8 guard, will also become a Cougar. Morrison was the Tribune's 5A MVP after helping the Hawks win the 5A state title last year. She was also a first-team all-region pick and the 5A tournament MVP. * Kylie Maeda of Hawaii's Iolani High, a 5-5 guard, also picked BYU. Maeda was the Player of the Year in the Interscholastic League of Honolulu last year. She averaged 15 points and five assists her junior year.
