Mitchell Says...
"Jackie is one of the top-ranked players in the country and she has unbelievable skill set and great size and strength. She is extremely skilled for a post player as she shoots the ball well and has great range. She also has size and the ability to operate an inside-outside combination that will help make us a better basketball team."
