You know those NCAA commercials where you’re told that college athletes “are going pro” in something other than sports? Yeah, well Whitney Scurlock should be a poster child for that commercial series. Scurlock, a Hooters Girl and aspiring bikini model, is a year removed from playing basketball for D-III Illinois Wesleyan.
Scurlock, a 5-11 forward, played in 26 games during the 2012-13 season, averaging 2.5 points and 2.5 rebounds a game. She had a season high 12 points against North Central. Here she is playing in a 2011 game.
But, as you know, Scurlock wasn’t going to the WNBA so the backup plan became work for Hooters and her bikini modeling. She has 1,100 Twitter (@Whitt__25) followers and a growing portfolio of bikini photos that are starting to get attention.
Kudos to Whitney for having this backup plan. Sure, it’s early in her professional climb through the rigors of #HotPicAtNoon. Sure, there will be bikini modeling bumps in the road, but she’s on her way just like the NCAA commercial goes.
One day you’re shooting hoops for Illinois Wesleyan, the next you’re a Twitter superstar. It’s a new world.
