695HOOPS WHERE IT'S ALWAYS ALL ABOUT THE GIRLS
Joppatowne's Zameria Jones recently signed her letter of intent to attend Morgan State right here in Baltimore and we were able to sit down with her and discuss her recruiting experience and how she plans to get ready for the next level in her career.
695: Tell me about the recruiting process, how did you end up at Morgan?
Zameria: I took a few visits and after visiting Morgan it was nothing like I expected. I wanted to attend a school that takes both basketball and academics serious and I saw that in Morgan. It was a long process, I felt relieved when it was done!
695: Did you have a chance to meet and play with the Morgan players?
695: Was it important to stay close to home or did you consider other schools too?
Zameria: I considered other schools but I wasn't feeling them as much.
695: What do you think you need to add to your game to excel at the college level?
Zameria: I want to get better defensively, improve my shot and ball handling.
695: What's the plan for the summer?
Zameria:My plan is to work hard and get my game ready for college.
695: Are you ready for the move to point guard?
Zameria: I usually play the two so improving my basketball IQ and handle is important while playing the point. It's something I can do for sure, I just have to get used to play it more often. I will be ready!

Zameria: I started in the first grade.
