UNION TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Glen Este senior guard Jasmine Hale has verbally committed to play basketball at Wisconsin.
Hale, who is 5 feet 10, is one of the area’s top girls’ basketball players in the 2018 class. She was named to the Associated Press Division I second-team all-district team this past winter after averaging 13.2 points in the regular season.
The first-team all-Eastern Cincinnati Conference selection helped Glen Este to a 17-8 record. She had a game-high 20 points to go along with three rebounds and a steal for Glen Este in its 53-44 loss to Mount Notre Dame in a sectional final at Sycamore Feb. 24.
MND eventually won the Division I state title in March in Columbus a few weeks later.
Hale averaged 13.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.5 steals for the season.
“Jasmine Hale is an athletic wing who provides an added scoring threat to the Wisconsin program,” said Tom Jenkins, Executive Director of the Ohio Girls’ Basketball Report. “Jasmine’s high IQ, ability to score and willingness to defend will allow her to make an immediate impact for the Badgers.”
Hale was recruited by former Rutgers and Winton Woods standout Myia McCurdy, who just completed her first season as a Wisconsin assistant along with Wisconsin head coach Jonathan Tsipis.
National Signing Day for basketball is Nov. 8.
Glen Este and Amelia have merged to form West Clermont High School starting this upcoming fall.
