No. 2 senior prospect Jordan Horston commits to Tennessee
Jordan Horston, the No. 2 prospect in the espnW HoopGurlz Top 100 and the MVP of the 2018 FIBA U17 World Cup, has given a verbal commitment to Tennessee.
The 6-foot-1 ultra-athletic guard at Columbus Africentric (Columbus, Ohio) announced her decision in a video she posted to Twitter on Wednesday.
As a junior at Africentric, Horston averaged 18.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 5.1 steals and 1.7 blocks and led Africentric to a state championship. Over the summer for USA Basketball, she averaged 10.1 points, 7.0 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 3.4 steals in the U.S. gold-medal run. Her ability to elevate off the dribble combined with a jump shot that extends to the arc have made her a matchup nightmare.
Horston's commitment leaves six of the top-10 prospects in the espnW HoopGurlz Top 100 undeclared, including No. 1 Haley Jones and No. 3 Aliyah Boston. The early signing period for the 2019 class runs from Nov. 14-21.
