“I think I am really going to work on game planning against very good competition,” Jernigan said. “Sometimes you have it in high school, but it’s more so in the travel and AAU game. But I think I’ll be able to follow some of the best girls out there and play with stacked teams and really working on your game at the highest level is going to help me when I come back home.”

There is a lot to consider when considering schools and basketball programs. But Jernigan has a couple criteria.

“It’s very important to have that family feel, seeing the girls interact with each other and if they enjoy being with each other,” she said. “Having that family — I know it’s cliche to say sometimes.

“But if you get hurt, would you be happy there, would you enjoy being there? That’s what I think about. And education is important, so what I want to major in. All of that crosses my mind in making the decision.”
