“We are so happy to have Crystal come and join our young program and her dad, Terry,” said Jabir. “Every program we’ve ever built has started with a person who took a chance on us. Crystal is that person. She’s a super talented player who will be a great leader for us and help us get to where we expect to go.”

The West Palm Beach, Florida native was with the Tigers for two seasons but sat out the 2017-18 season after transferring from Duke. She played with the Blue Devils for two seasons. She started in 14 games as a freshman.
In high school, Primm was named the Palm Beach Post, Sun-Sentinel and Florida Dairy Farmers 3A and FABC 3A Player of the Year. She scored 856 points in her junior and senior seasons combined, averaging 20.4 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.2 steals and 2.1 assists as a senior.
