Florida’s Brylee Bartram transfers to Vanderbilt

Former Seffner Christian standout Brylee Bartram, who set the national high school record for most career 3-pointers, left Florida to join Vanderbilt. Bartram made the decision Tuesday with a post on her Twitter page.

“There was no bad blood,” said Bartram, who entered the transfer portal two weeks ago. “It just ended up not being the right fit for me.”

As a Gator, the sharpshooter continued to fire away from long range. Bartram appeared in 29 of 30 games as a freshman this past season. Of her 126 field goal attempts, 117 came from beyond the arc. 

After entering the portal, Bartram had offers or interest from a number of schools, including Florida Gulf Coast, Missouri, New Mexico, Penn State and West Virginia. She felt most comfortable with the Commodores. 

“I felt it was the best situation,” Bartram said. “The coaching staff and the players were great and their style of play really suits me. They never really talk about playing time, but I feel like they have a lot of faith in me and what I can do.”

Bartam finished as Seffner Christian’s all-time leading scorer with 2,544 points. The national record (boys and girls) she set included 533 career 3-pointers. For now, Bartram is staying in shape by taking shots on her backyard hoop.
