Isai said she is not worried that remaining at the high school level will hinder her recruiting.
“I don’t really have concerns with recruiting. I have offers from schools I would love to attend. If I get more offers that’s great and if not I am fine,” Isai stated. “All the offers I have so far have come from coaches seeing me play with my EYBL team, BlueStar or high school. I don’t think you have to attend (a prep school) to be a high level recruit.”

Jennah will stay in the district for her education, but not on the Valley Vista campus.
“I won’t be taking classes at Valley, but I will via Dysart iSchool. I have taken some of Dysart’s online courses and they are great courses,” Isai stated. “In addition, I can take both Dual Enrollment and AP Classes through Dysart’s iSchool. Education is very important to my family and I wanted to go with a program I knew would still be rigorous and NCAA accredited.” . . .
“I am looking forward to the training and practicing with the girls. Almost the entire team has Division I offers. They practice hard, but also all get along. There is competition during the drills, but we are all good off the court. This is the type of atmosphere where I will grow,” Jennah Isai stated.
