Mississippi State women’s basketball is getting a transfer guard from Oklahoma State

Guard Chandler Prater has committed to Mississippi State women’s basketball, the transfer from Oklahoma State was announced on Instagram on Sunday. She is the second addition to Sam Purcell’s roster to be coached through the portal this offseason, joining former Kentucky guard Eniya Russell.

Prater spent one season with the Cowboys. However, she only played in five games after suffering a season-ending injury. In her short stint, Prater averaged eight points and six rebounds per game.

Her collegiate career began at Kansas, where she spent four years and played three seasons. In 86 games, she made 36 starts, averaging 7.3 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. Prater’s best campaign came as a junior (2022-2023), when she averaged 9.5 points and six rebounds.

Prater’s commitment to Mississippi State comes after a visit Friday. Her arrival coincided with Super Bulldog Weekend – an annual event at MSU in which the football team hosts its spring game while the baseball team competes in an SEC series.

Prater is a product of Kansas City, Missouri.
