Jonquel Jones, the No. 6 ranked forward in the Class of 2012 according to ESPN HoopGurlz, is also the Gatorade State Player of the Year for Maryland. Her range and shooting stroke have earned her comparisons to Kevin Durant. She is a Clemson commit.
Jones is one of five Riverdale Baptist seniors who have committed to a Division I college program. The others are Jennie Simms (West Virginia), Brittany Murray (La Salle), Domonique Johnson (Towson) and Kelila Atkinson (Wake Forest). This is Riverdale’s third appearance in the NHSI. They finished the season top ten in the FAB 50 Girl’s Basketball Rankings with signature victories over Mater Dei (CA) and HD Woodson (DC).
