Hononegah's King makes Marquette commitment official

Rockton, Ill. (WIFR) Hononegah senior Jordan King signed her letter of intent to play basketball at Marquette University.

King said this is something she has worked towards since the third grade, when she decided she wanted to play college basketball after watching Maya Moore at the University of Connecticut.

She said the Golden Eagles already feel like family.

"The coaches at Marquette, I really clicked with them," said King. "Even the players too were so welcoming. Just the style of play too fits really well and for it to be close to home is pretty good too."

"To see my dreams come true and see all the hard work pay off, it's just been amazing."
