Last week, Jayda Curry — a coveted 2021 point guard prospect from (Corona) Centennial High School in Southern California — announced she has significant interest in Jody Wynn’s Washington Huskies program and placed the UW in her final “Top 5” of schools.

This week, Jayda Curry announced on her Instagram account that she will make her commitment decision on August 1, 2020.
It is huge news that the Huskies are in serious contention for Curry’s point guard services.
Besides the University of Washington, other schools rounding out Curry’s Top 5 are (in no particular order): Utah, Arizona State, California and San Diego State.
Heavy Pac-12 recruiting interest reflects the belief Curry’s talents could impact the balance of power in the conference.
The speedy and aggressive Jayda Curry is a scoring point guard with the ability to push the ball on the break, as well as attack with the dribble in half-court. She is a nonstop ball of energy constantly making plays for teammates or scoring herself.
If signed by the Huskies, Jayda Curry would join an impressive list of Washington 2021 commitments — ie., shooting/combo guard Avery Van Sickle, point/combo guard Jess Finney and wing AJ Marotte — that could play off her talents and give her plenty of options to create on offense.
Curry would also mesh well with the incoming 2020 Huskies freshmen class — comprised of big athletic wings 6’0″ Jayda Noble and 6’2″ Alexis Whitfield, as well as speedy (pass-first) point guard Tameiya Sadler.
This summer Curry is displaying her impressive basketball skillset during the shortened summer basketball circuits, specifically with the West Coast Premier team.
Hopefully, the hot pursuit of Jayda by Jody Wynn and her staff will be rewarded with a Jayda Curry commitment to the Huskies on August 1st.
