Staley adds another top talent: Four-star wing commits


Dawn Staley continues to add top talent to the South Carolina women's basketball program.

Late Monday night Montgomery (Ala.) Brewbaker Tech Magnet class of 2017 wing Bianca Jackson announced her commitment to the Gamecocks on Twitter.

The 5-foot-11 Jackson, ranked the No. 11 wing in the country by ESPN.com, joins the fold one day after Bradenton (Fla.) Lakewood five-star forward LaDazhia Williams committed on Sunday afternoon.

Jackson is ranked the No. 54 overall prospect in her class by ESPN.

An evaluation on Jackson's ESPN.com profile reads: "Long and athletic perimeter threat handles and attacks in uptempo; mid range game creator, stationary threat at the arc; anticipates, active in passing lanes, converts in pressure."

Jackson is the fourth commitment to South Carolina's 2017 class joining Williams, Haley Troup and Elisia Grissett.
