Jakia Brown-Turner of Temple Hill, Md., has been on our staff’s radar for years. The nation’s No. 5 Class of 2019 wing gave North Carolina State a verbal this weekend after visiting the Raleigh-based campus. She’ll be in front of our staff again with Team Takeover EYBL during the EIE Shootout and PSBElite32 in late-July.

MY TAKE: Brown-Turner’s versatility and size allows her to potentially play either forward position at the next level. She allows a team to go big or small depending on matchup / need. She plays with energy and will attack the rim. Once Brown-Turner gets to campus, she can continue to improve her ball handling and jump shooting and should see her value to the Wolfpack increase as a result.

HANSEN'S TAKE:  Brown-Turner creates so many matchup problems that teaming her with a player like Ace Konig will be trouble right from the start. She has the ability to carry the scoring load but can also impact the game in other areas.
