Incoming Michigan State women’s basketball recruit Tori Jankoska has been named to PARADE’s 2013 high school All-American team.
The honor is the latest for the Freeland High School standout, who was named Michigan’s Miss Basketball and the Gatorade Player of the Year in March. Jankoska, a 5-foot-8 guard, averaged 30.9 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 4.8 steals in her final season at Freeland. She totaled 2,333 points in her career and was one of four prep players in Saginaw County history and the first girl to surpass 2,000 points.
Jankoska was one of 40 players to named to PARADE’s All-American team and is one of two incoming Big Ten players for next season on the list, joining Iowa recruit Ally Disterhoft. Maryland, which joins the Big Ten in 2014, had two incoming recruits (Lexie Brown, Shatori Walker-Kimbrough) on the team.
Jankoska is the fourth player that earned high school All-American honors that MSU coach Suzy Merchant has landed. Madison Williams was a McDonalds and USA Today All-American, Jasmine Hines was a PARADE All-American and Branndais Agee was a WBCA All-American.
