A year of sacrifice pays off in Pac-12 scholarship offers for Camarillo’s Gabriela Jaquez (Ventura County Star, 7/22/2021)

Jaquez, who attended the NCAA men’s tournament in Indianapolis with her family, has considered what it would mean to follow in her brother’s sneakers in Westwood.

“I’ve thought about that,” Jaquez said. “That doesn’t weigh into my decision. If I went to USC, I’d still be Jaime Jaquez’s sister … He’s supportive of what I want to do.”

Jaquez plans to take a moment to evaluate her options. She doesn’t know when she’ll make her decision.

“I think I’m going to take some visits after Nike Nationals … and go from there,” Jaquez said. “We’ll see how it plays out. We’ll evaluate the schools, the programs, and what would be the best fit for me.”
