Remember when I posted Friday night saying Central-Phenix City girls basketball player Monique Jackson may have tipped her hand when it was announced during the homecoming ceremony that she wanted to go to Ole Miss?
Well it turns out I was a few days behind bamaprepgirls.com, an Alabama girls high school basketball recruiting blog run by some AAU coaches and former players.
According to that site, Jackson committed to Ole Miss on Sept. 21 (short story here) and Central teammate Kristi Mokube committed to play for Florida State in August (short story here).
Jackson told bamaprepgirls.com:
“I was on my official visit for about 2 hours hanging out with the team and I just felt so comfortable and I knew right away that Ole Miss was the place for me. I’m just so happy. I’m really at a loss for words”
I'll try to catch up with them and some other local athletes this week, so check back.
