Chanise Jenkins Picks DePaul

WeAreDePaul.com has learned that Whitney Young point guard Chanise "Trix" Jenkins verbally committed to DePaul Blue Demons women's basketball coach Doug Bruno tonight.

Chanise Jenkins, a 5-4 point guard, played on the AAU circuit this summer for the Mac Irvin Lady Fire.

Jenkins is ranked by ESPN Hoopgurlz as the 50th best prospect in the nation for the class of 2011.

Hoopgurlz describes Jenkins as a clutch player.

"She has every shot imaginable in her arsenal and her confidence has grown so much through the high school season that she will take any of those shots, if her team needs it," stated Hoogurlz. "She has blinding speed with the ball and somehow is able to change directions at full speed. She can get past almost any defender in a one-on-one situation and is usually quicker than the first level of help as well. However, she could improve her ability to get quality shots up over the second level of help, which is usually a post she's giving up nearly a foot in height to. She can really heat up from long range and even if she's not shooting the ball well early in the game she always seems to come through in clutch situations, as she did for Whitney Young this past winter."
