Iowa women’s basketball recruit Whitney Jennings has been named to the Parade Magazine All-America team.

Jennings is from Logansport, Ind. She led the state in scoring with a 32-point average.

A 5-foot-5 senior, Jennings was a four-year starter. She also averaged 8.0 rebounds, 7.4 assists and 5.1 steals this season. She’s also an honor roll student.

Logansport went 24-3 this season.

Jennings finished her career with 2,641 points, the fifth highest total in state history.

“Whitney is the point guard that we need in our system,” Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said of her. “She is a fast-scoring point guard and an exceptional ball handler.”

She’s one of four recruits who signed with Iowa. The others: Christian Buttenham (Hamilton, Ontario), Chase Coley (Minneapolis) and Carly Mohns (Brodhead, Wis.).
