(Stillwater-AP) -- A rising star in New Zealand track and field is transferring to Oklahoma State.

Mary Davies signed a national letter of intent this week. She'll have three years of eligibility.

Davies' strength is distance running. She finished second in the 3,000-meter run at the New Zealand Nationals with a time of nine minutes, 31 seconds.

She placed third in the New Zealand National Championships in the 5,000-meter run with a time of about 16 minutes, 13 seconds.

Coach Rene Sepulveda says Davis is one of the top distance recruits in the Big 12.
