Blue Springs High School seems, by all accounts, to be losing a second big-time basketball select in a month.
Jada Williams, who is the No. 16-positioned enlist in the 2023 class by ESPN, affirmed on her Twitter account Thursday night that she would move La Jolla Country Day School in La Jolla, California, and joining a couple of other huge volunteers, Breya Cunningham (ESPN No. 4 out of 2023 class) and Tajianna Roberts (ESPN No. 12 out of 2024 class).
Williams retweeted a post by EGB Hoops, “With the addition of @mrsmac0606 (Williams) LaJolla Country Day now has 3 ESPN top 20 players. @taj__roberts #12 and @BreyaC2023 #4. A true PG, True Scorer and a true Post and a good supporting cast.”
A month prior, Braden Appelhans of the Blue Springs young men ball group, reported he was moving to Western Reserve Academy in Ohio to upgrade his enrolling profile.
Williams, a 5-foot-8 point monitor who has verbally dedicated to UCLA, is addressing the USA Basketball in the FIBA Americas Women’s U16 Championship one week from now in Mexico. She – and Grain Valley High School’s Grace Slaughter, her previous AAU colleague with Missouri Phenom – left for the current week for the instructional course in Washington, D.C., preceding that global competition.
This mid-year, Williams played on the 17U Cal Swish GBL group in the Nike Girls Elite Youth Basketball League, which is generally viewed as the top youth class in the country.
Williams, who will be a lesser this year, has procured all-state praises in her initial two seasons in secondary school. As a sophomore, she arrived at the midpoint of 19.1 focuses, 5.3 bounce back, 3.6 helps, and 2.2 takes for the Wildcats to acquire Class 6 all-state praises by the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association.
She shared Examiner Player of the Year respects with Slaughter as a rookie while driving the Wildcats to the Class 5 state last four, which was dropped in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. She counted 17.6 focuses, 4.6 bounce back, 3.4 helps, and 3.1 takes per game as a first-year recruit to procure MBCA Class 5 all-state praises.
After that season, Williams was commended in an ESPN.com article composed by Dan Olson, who considered her the following Skylar Diggins-Smith, the previous Notre Dame star who as of late aided the U.S. ladies’ group win its seventh consecutive Olympic gold award.
Before her first year recruits secondary educational season, Williams – and Slaughter – helped lead the U.S. Focal Region U14 group to a title at the 2019 Jr. NBA Global Championship with a 7-0 record and a 72-35 success over Canada at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida.
