Caldwell poaches Boykin

Nikki Caldwell didn’t just take her high heels to LSU, she’s bringing along something – make that someone – else.

Caldwell announced on Tuesday that the Tigers have signed former UCLA recruit Sheila Boykin, who was granted a release from her letter of intent.

Boykin, who was rated the No. 27 prospect in the country by, averaged 10 points and 8.3 rebounds for the Jackrabbits last season.

Boykin would’ve joined a talented UCLA roster under new head coach Cori Close, who will still bring in No 25-rated Kacy Swain, along with Moriah Faulk and Alexis Perry.
