Allison Jackson's signing with Division I program Nebraska-Omaha gives the city three players from Class 4A schools to sign with Division I schools this year. Chapin's Kristina Higgins signed with Baylor and Horizon's Janelle Perez signed with Northwestern State. It was a good year for girls basketball programs in the city and there were several other girls basketball players, who will go on to play basketball for non-Division I programs.
Jackson, Higgins and Perez were three of the very best the city had to offer and all three have a very high skill level. Jackson was the latest one to sign on Wednesday and she's a player who has overcome injury to play Division I basketball. She missed her entire junior season due to a foot injury, but came back for her senior year and was healthy. She has plenty of upside in her game and it'll be interesting to see how well she does for a program that will be in the Summit League next year.
