Former Whitney High basketball star Jordan Wilson, who graduated high school in June, will stay in Rocklin for college. Wilson, 6-foot-4 wing player, will play basketball for William Jessup University. Wilson helped the Wildcats go 22-8 during his senior season and was one of the major reasons why Whitney advanced into the third round of the playoffs. Whitney also won the Pioneer Valley League championship. Wilson averaged 14 points and eight rebounds per game as a senior. He was voted first-team all PVL and team MVP. “I chose to play for William Jessup University because I really like coach (Aaron) Muhic and his staff,” Wilson said. “I wanted to stay near my family and friends while receiving a quality education. That made WJU the perfect choice for me.” Muhic is excited about signing the local hoops star. “It will be a great pleasure to work with Jordan as he is a great fit for our university,” Muhic said. “Plus the fact that it is great to find quality student-athletes in our own backyard to coach. “Jordan has a great feel for the game and knows how to make his teammates better. I know that he will have a great experience at Jessup.”
