Juco HM All-American Looking at Several

NJCAA Honorable Mention All-American women's basketball player Porsha Porter of Jefferson College in Hillsboro, Missouri has numerous schools on her recruiting radar screen.

"Oklahoma State, South Carolina, the University of Texas, Mississippi State, Morgan State, (Southern Illinois) Carbondale, Oral Roberts and Georgia are recruiting me," said Porsha, who is leading her number 2 ranked team in scoring with a 18.8 per game average. "Mostly everybody has offered me."

Although she's receiving a lot of recruiting interest, two schools stand above the rest when it comes to the interest they are showing in her.

"Morgan State and Mississippi State are recruiting me the most," said Porsha, an extremely quick player who has recorded 4.3 steals per game in Jefferson College's first 6 games of the season.

As of now, four schools are at the top of her recruiting list.

"I would probably say Mississippi State is my number one and Morgan State would be my second school," said Porsha, who went to high school at Mill Creek in Atlanta, Georgia. "I'm from Georgia and they want me to come back. I'm still debating that but I don't think I will. I'm also interested in Oklahoma State but I haven't taken my visit there, so I don't know what they have. But I've heard they have a nice gym."

She has officially visited two schools and talks about what impressed her about both.

Mississippi State - "At Mississippi State I like how the people come out and support the team. It's all about Mississippi State. When I went down there on a visit (in September) the coaches and players treated you right. I just enjoyed myself while I was down there. (Mississippi State head) Coach (Sharon) Fanning(-Otis) really took care of us while we were down there on the visit. It was just nice there."

Morgan State - "It is in a big city and there was always a lot of stuff to do there when we went on our visit. They took us to a lot of places, out to eat. We met famous people there. And the girls got along real good. We just hung out with them on our visit."

Although there are two days left in the fall signing period, Porsha has no plans to sign.

"I'm going to wait and sign in April," said the 2009 All-Conference and 1st team All-Region selection.
