BILLINGS - Rocky Mountain College women’s head basketball coach Wes Keller announced Tuesday the signing of Harley Jackson. Jackson joins the Battlin’ Bears from Sho-Ban High School in Fort Hall, Idaho.
As a senior, the 5-foot-5 guard, averaged 26.6 points per game, 91 of which were from the three-point line. Additionally Jackson accumulated 138 rebounds, 111 assists and 100 steals. During her two-year varsity career for the Lady Chiefs, the two-time all state honoree, scored over 1,100 points, which included a career-high of 47.
“We have been following Harley’s career for the past two years and we are very happy that she has chosen to attend Rocky,” Keller said.
“We got to know Harley when she attended one of our summer camps in Hardin and we were impressed with her skill set, especially her shooting ability. People who have seen her play will remember her unlimited shooting range, but her ball-handling and passing skills are just as impressive. We look forward to having her in our program.”
Jackson is the daughter of LaVon Jackson Jr. and Misty Miller. She carries a 3.01 GPA and plans to earn a degree in a medical related science.
“I chose Rocky because I like where the program is going with Coach Keller and Coach Morehouse. I want to be part of its continued success. They have believed in me during the entire recruiting process and made me feel that I can come in and make an impact. Rocky is also close enough to home for my family to come and watch me play.”
