Boston College women’s basketball has picked up a new recruit for the 2018-19 season. Jenasae Bishop, a point guard from East Chicago Central High School, announced her commitment earlier this month. Bishop received a number of D1 offers, including Wisconsin, Indiana, and MSU. Purdue and Princeton also showed interest in Bishop.
Bishop has been a member of the varsity team at East Chicago since she was a freshman. She has averaged 23.7 points per game and 6.2 rebounds per game over three seasons. As a junior, she averaged 24.9 points per game and 6.2 rebounds per game. As a junior, Bishop already holds East Chicago’s career scoring record.
Bishop was one of the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association’s “Supreme 15” underclassmen this season. She was also named to the IndyStar Indiana Junior All-Star team.
The Boston College women’s basketball team has struggled over the past few seasons and ended last year with a 9-21 record. If Bishop can adjust quickly to NCAA play and the high level of talent in the ACC, her offensive skills could gain her significant playing time as a rookie.
