September 12, 2013Monterey Trail 2014 guard Jasmine Redmon has steadily risen as a recruit during her high school career and recently ended her recruitment with a Hawaii commitment. We caught up with the 3-star prospect to talk about her decision.
The 5-foot-9 shooting guard committed to Hawaii on August 31 while on her way to the airport home from her official visit.
"Personally, I come from a very close family and I knew when I went away for college, I wanted to go somewhere that was family oriented," Redmon said. "The people in Hawaii are very friendly. They know who all of the athletes are."
Hawaii went 17-14 last year, including 13-5 in the Big West. The Rainbow Wahine have pursued numerous NorCal products in this class and land a versatile one in Redmon.
"They love my aggressiveness on defense. They know I have the offensive game. In AAU (playing with JBS), I didn't have to show my offense. When it comes to my school, I have to step it up," Redmon said. As a junior, she averaged 17 points, six rebounds, four assists and five steals per game.
It wasn't all good news this summer as Redmon suffered a broken nose in June and played with a face mask at the End of the Trail in Oregon. After not playing well with it on, she finished Oregon without it and continued her improved play to Tennessee.
"I played very timid. Personally, I thought I was going to lose my looks," Redmon said. "Without the mask, I played a million times better. I was just a second late with my mask on."
