Scouting Report: A forward with terrific size and length for the position(long wingspan). She is an explosive leaper and has next level athleticism. A very good player in transition, she runs the floor extremely hard. She is able to finish plays in open lane situations. Her upper body is well built, and she has the strength to move defenders on drives to the basket. Top class catch and shoot threat. With her feet set she can shoot the ball with range and very consistently knock down jumpers from deep. Her impact on the defensive end is tremendous, where her size, length, athleticism and terrific instincts make her a lockdown defender. She possesses all the tools to be able to translate her defense to the WNBA level. Super versatile, she can defend 1-5. Her ability to anticipate and jump into passing lanes combined with shotblocking, make her a very rare threat on the defensive side of the ball. A solid rebounder, she is especially good on the Offensive glass, where she uses her length and athleticism to get to rebounds.
Overall, a super athletic scorer. Possesses the ability to put the ball on the floor and slash to the paint or shoot with very high percentages.
Jessica proved herself at the highest level of European basketball. She is a difference maker. One of the best forwards overseas.
