Piedmont High senior Jasmyne Huggins became the fourth member of Menlo College's women's basketball latest recruiting class as announced by Oaks coach Shannon Spataro on Thursday. She joins Tulare High's Kiara Brown, Cosumnes Oaks High's Jordyn Rosette and Snohomish (WA) High's Courtney Perry.
The six-foot Huggins gives Menlo versatility as she has played both the power forward and guard positions. She is also a sprinter in track and field.
Huggins started for Piedmont's girls' basketball team her first three years and was named to the all-league team all three years. She was the team MVP last season.
Huggins led Piedmont into the CIF Northern California Championships in Division III as a junior. The Highlanders finished 23-7.
Huggins has been a member of Associated Student Body, the yearbook, and attended several basketball camps.
"We are very excited about Jasmyne being a part of our program," Spataro said. "She is a great athlete with an outstanding work ethic. She is aggressive on the boards, attacks the basket well with both hands and is a lock down defender. I have no doubt Jasmyne will be an impact player here at Menlo."
Menlo opens its season on Nov. 1 against Notre Dame de Namur.
