Scouting Report

Jordan Horston is the epitome of versatility. She can seamlessly slide from positions 1-3, and at 6’2, she can even play the 4 in a small ball situation.  She is extremely unselfish and finds ways to impact the game on both ends of the floor. She is a nightmare to guard in transition and presents an immediate mismatch every night. Defensively, she can guard positions 1-4 equally well and her size allows her to get her hands on a lot of balls and start the break!
