PLAYER BIO

Describing a player as "versatile" becomes rather redundant when talking about new additions to the Curry family at Purdue. Yet for 5'9 Tye Jackson, who is destined for the shooting guard position in college, "versatile" has to be used for the high school post player who leads her team in rebounding. Tye also led the team in scoring, assists, rebounds and blocked shots. Plus has been honored for her defensive pressure. Add to that a story that she blocked a shot against the backboard last season, and you have done well to define Curry's latest versatile addition.

Jackson averaged 17.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, 4.5 steals, 4.0 assists, 1.1 blocks as a junior for 29-5 Westfield, taking the District MVP award and was also named Houston area Player of the Year.

During the 2001-02 seaosn, Jackson was named by the Texas High School Athletic Association to their All-Tournament team. A year before, Westfield lost to Mansfield in the 2000-01 state finals.

Tye Jackson made an oral commitment to Purdue on November 14, 2003. She signed with Purdue during the early period on November 17, 2003. She chose Purdue over Texas.


SCOUTING REPORTS

Purdue head coach Kristy Curry..."We are thrilled to have another Texan join our roster. Tye is the most athletic player in this recruiting class. She is extremely quick, has the ability to get to the rim and can shoot the three. She will fill a void for us at the shooting guard position." (November 17, 2003)

Georgetown coach Rhonda Farney..."She can play any position. She's one of the most versatile players. There are other versatile players, but what separates her from them is she doesn't prefer one position over another. She's been a special player since I saw her her freshman year. She played exceptionally well at the state tournament her sophomore year. Certainly she's grown. But I think she's always been pretty special. She's the best player in the state." (November 15, 2003 - Houston Chronicle)
