Ohio Women's Basketball Head Coach Semeka Randall bolstered her 2013-14 recruiting with the additions of Yamonie Jenkins, Quiera Lampkins and Destini Cooper Tuesday.
Cooper and Jenkins are currently teammates on Reynoldsburg High School, a team that was ranked second in the state last year with a 26-1 record.
Cooper averaged 9.9 points and 7.4 rebounds during that stretch where she reached double digits 12 times. She achieved most of her scoring from her floor general, Jenkins.
As point guard of the successful team, Jenkins averaged 5.6 assists per game and also contributed some scoring, averaging 5.7 points a game. The guard is also a steal machine, as she averaged 4.0 steals a game last year.
The addition of the two teammates will give the Bobcats another leader and post player to bolster their lineup and depth, something Randall is looking forward to seeing.
Lampkins has received high grades from several scouting reports, including ESPN’s High School Girls’ Basketball list where she was given a 90 rating. The 5-foot-9 point guard has been extremely helpful to her team’s success in past years, which includes a 27-point outing against Pickerington North High School. Lampkins’ play often makes her team a threat in the district, which her high school has won twice in her career.
Randall loves the addition of Lampkins, saying her quickness will separate her from other guards.
Ohio will take the court Sunday, Nov. 25 at 2 p.m. in The Convocation Center. The Bobcats will be looking for their second win of the season against Duquesne.
