Peachtree Ridge senior Jessica Northcutt has made a commitment to the Samford University (Ala.) tennis program. She is the daughter of Gary Northcutt and Carol O'Sullivan.

Northcutt had a 13-1 record last spring, alternating at No. 1 and No. 2 singles with Oklahoma State signee Mary Jeremiah and earning Daily Post girls player of the year honors. A scholar-athlete who is ranked among the state's best 18s, she chose Samford over offers from Miami (Ohio), East Carolina and Elon.
