USF SIGNS TOP RECRUITS IN EARLY PERIOD

November 23, 2015 
By  USF
 

TAMPA, NOV. 23, 2015 – Head coach Jose Fernandez and the USF women’s basketball staff announced the signing of four student-athletes during the early signing period, welcoming in top recruits from around the world to Tampa.

Jazzmaine Bond, Tamara Henshaw, Shae Leverett and Enna Pehadzic were ranked among the best talent in the 2016 recruiting class by All Star Girls Report, Blue Star, Blue Star Europe, Collegiate Girls Basketball Report/ESPNW, JumpOFF Plus and Passion Hoops.

“Not only are these young ladies great student-athletes and basketball players, they are great people” said Fernandez. “They are committed to improving, and coming into a program that has experienced great success over the years. They are really good fits for USF academically and athletically.”

Bond, a 6-3 forward from Murfreesboro, Tenn., is no stranger to success. In her junior season, Bond helped lead Blackman High School to the Tennessee AAA State Championship. The two-time state champion Lady Blaze were also declared the state high school National Champions by USA Today. Bond averaged 7.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks last season.

Henshaw, a 6-1 forward from Palm Coast, Fla., led Flagler Palm Coast (FPC) to the Florida State Class 8A Final Four in 2015, the first Final Four appearance in program history. Henshaw was All-Area First team and FABC 8A All-State Second Team. The Florida native averaged 11.8 points and 10.7 rebounds per game last season.

Leverett, a 6-2 forward from Rincon, Ga. is a 1,000-point scorer from South Effingham High School. Leverett reached the career mark as a junior and was the Georgia Region 3 5A Offensive Player of the Year. Leverett was also named to the Georgia State 5A All-State second team, averaging 16.9 points and 13.8 rebounds per game, with 25 double-doubles.

Adding to the Bulls international flavor is a 5-9 guard Pehadzic from Denmark. Pehadzic played for the Denmark U18 National Team this past summer in the European Championship, led the squad with 17.6 points to go along with 5 rebounds and 3 assists per game.  Pehadzic played for the U16 squad in 2013 and 2012.

“With this class, we addressed the areas we needed. We needed to bolster our front line, and with the signing of Jazzmaine, Tamara and Shea, we added some key components to our line. Enna will bring depth to our backcourt. She can play the point guard and the shooting guard position. I’m excited about her being with our program.”

Jose Fernandez’s 2015 women’s basketball team returns all five starters, including All-American Candidate Courtney Williams, from a team that posted a 27-8 (15-3 American) record in 2014-15 and finished the season in the top 25 rankings. The squad finished second behind eventual NCAA champion UConn in the American Athletic Conference and made an exciting NCAA Tournament run that saw USF top LSU in front of 5,560 fans in the Sun Dome in the NCAA regional round.

In 2015-16, the Bulls will be hosting their toughest schedule yet, including the opening rounds of the Preseason WNIT, along with perennial powers Penn State, Chattanooga, Oklahoma State and UConn making trips to Tampa. Season tickets, starting at just $65, are available for purchase online at USFBullsTix.com, by phone at 1-800-GoBulls or in person at the Gate B ticket office of the Sun Dome, with single game tickets going on sale in late September.

USF has made 11 postseason tournament appearances and had three NCAA Tournament berths in Head Coach Jose Fernandez’s 15 seasons. The all-time winningest coach in program history, Fernandez has guided USF to six 20-win seasons, two WNIT final four appearances, the 2009 WNIT championship and won more than 260 games.
