Lady Vols host former SEC leading scorer

The Tennessee Lady Vols this weekend are hosting junior forward Rickea Jackson, who was top the SEC in scoring when she entered the transfer portal from Mississippi Point out in January.

The No. 14 Woman Vols host No. 8 LSU on Sunday.

Jackson averaged 20.3 points and 6.8 rebounds in 15 video games this season. Tennessee recruited the 6-2 forward out of substantial faculty. Jackson’s mom, Caryn Jackson, instructed the Clarion Ledger “she just wants out for psychological health and fitness reasons,” when she built the determination to go away MSU.

Jackson had a few unique coaches at MSU in three years. She’s not qualified for the WNBA draft.

Mississippi State sophomore forward Rickea Jackson scored a team-high 23 points in the Bulldogs' loss to Kentucky.

Jackson is a dynamic scorer as a ahead and would be a sport-changer. Tennessee mentor Kellie Harper’s 2022 class has 1 signee: five-star guard Justine Pissott. 

Harper is no stranger to securing crucial gamers out of the transfer portal. Graduate transfers Keyen Inexperienced, Alexus Dye and Jordan Walker have all made substantial impacts for the Woman Vols this season.

Jackson is the next Detroit native to check out Knoxville this 7 days. The Woman Vols hosted 5-6 place guard Jasmine Powell on Thursday when they beat Mississippi Condition. Powell, a junior from Minnesota, entered the transfer portal at the stop of January.
