After one season at Samford, Young comes to Kennesaw State with a year of college basketball under her belt. The 5-8 guard played in 21 games for the Bulldogs, starting three contests, while averaging 18.0 minutes 4.0 points, 1.2 assists and 1.1 rebounds per game as a freshman.
The all-time leading scorer in Woodstock history, Young will sit out the 2014-15 season due to NCAA rules and will have three years of eligibility left beginning for the 2015-16 season.
“Clara is a heady, athletic point guard that will unfortunately have to sit out this year due to her transfer status,” Perry said in a release. “She is a playmaker that makes everyone on the floor around her better. I am excited about her future here.”
A 5-2 point guard from Rincon in southeast Georgia, Germain helped lead South Effingham High School to the best season in school history as the Lady Mustangs reached the Class AAAA state semifinals for the first time before falling to eventual champion Redan.
Germain finished her career with 2,333 points and averaged 17.8 points, 3.9 assists, 3.9 steals and 3.0 rebounds per game as a senior. Germain earned first-team all-state honors following her sophomore and junior seasons and second-team all-state following her freshman and senior campaigns.
The additions of Young and Germain will give the Owls a total of seven newcomers for 2014-15, joining high school signees Nefretarie Lockley, Brittany Dixon and Katherine Polinsky, and junior college transfers Karly Frye and Jasmine McAllister.
Kennesaw State struggled last season, Perry’s second as coach, going 6-24 overall with a 4-14 record in Atlantic Sun Conference play.
