Burton Signs National Letter of Intent
MARYVILLE, Mo. -- Northwest Missouri State University head women's basketball coach Gene Steinmeyer has announced the signing of Jessica Burton (Overland Park, Kan.) to a NCAA Division II National Letter-of-Intent today.
Burton is the last Northwest signee in the early signing date, which takes place Nov. 10 through Nov. 17.
She is a 5 foot 10 forward at Blue Valley Northwest High School. Burton averaged 14 points, six rebounds and three assists per game.
"Jessica is the last of a very versatile recruiting class," Steinmeyer said. "She's strong and she loves the outside but is very talented inside also. Her great speed and size along with her shooting ability will benefit Northwest's basketball program. We look forward to having Jessica join the team."
Burton will be a freshman at Northwest next fall.
