JMU's "Precious Destiny"

ESPN's Hoopgurlz reports that AAU teammates Precious Hall, a 5-8 guard from Tallahassee, Fla., and Destiny Jones, a 6-0 forward from Miramar, Fla, have both verbally committed to James Madison. This gives the Dukes three verbals for the class of 2012; last month JMU got a commitment from Robert E. Lee guard Angela Mickens. (Click here for a complete rundown on verbals for all Virginia's D-I schools).

To be fair, the Daily News and Record in Harrisonburg apparently had this information first. But since their online stuff is hidden behind a paywall, we're never quite sure what they have, or when they have it. That's no knock on the writers, though, who appear to be doing a good job of keeping the paper's subscribers informed.

Hall and Jones were both played for the Essence AAU club, the same outfit the Dukes mined for senior Kiara Francisco. Old Dominion freshman Myeisha Hall and Virginia Tech sophomore Brittni Montgomery are also Essence alums.

Time will tell if either of JMU's new prospective signees will develop into All-CAA candidates. But they're already first-team all-name contenders right out of the box. Can't wait to start putting Precious and Destiny in headlines. The possibilities are endless....
