Lady Tigers Add Three During Early Signing Period

NASHVILLLE --- Tennessee State University head women’s basketball coach Jessica Kern announced the signing of three players to National Letters of Intent today.

Jazmine Young (5-8 Guard, Milwaukee, Wisc.), Dajaah Lightfoot (6-0 Forward, Las Vegas, Nev.) and  Ashley Primas (6-1 Forward, Detroit, Mich.) will join the Lady Tiger basketball program for the 2018-19 season.

Head Coach Jessica Kern on the signees
“We were definitely looking to go bigger and more athletic with this class. Jazmine Young does it all. Dajaah Lightfoot can play three, four and five. Ashley Primas is a long lefty that can play four through five but more importantly can defend positions two through five. We want to have long, athletic players that can post, shoot the ball and defend. These kids have a very good basketball IQ, have done very well in the high school and AAU circuit and we’re very lucky to get them.”
