All-section center Lexi Jackson, who averaged a double-double for Gateway’s girls basketball team, committed Saturday to Kent State.
The 6-foot-3 senior averaged 16 points, 18 rebounds and five blocks last season for the Gators, who went 19-4 and reached the WPIAL Class 5A quarterfinals. Her best performance last winter was a 37-point, 16-rebound, 11-block effort in a victory over Baldwin.
Jackson also was recruited by Western Michigan, James Madison, North Carolina A&T and Radford.
Kent State went 20-13 overall last season, 11-7 in the Mid-American Conference and competed in the WNIT.
