MERIDIAN — One of the top girls high school basketball players in the Class of 2016 has reopened her recruitment.
Mountain View point guard Destiny Slocum, who verbally committed to the University of Washington prior to her junior season, confirmed she officially decommitted on Thursday.
Slocum led the Mavericks to their first Idaho 5A state championship this past season. She averaged 25.1 points, 5.6 assists and 5.3 rebounds en route to being named the Idaho Gatorade Player of the Year.
“I want to be 100% sure that I’m make the right decision for myself,” Slocum said through a text message. “If I’m meant to be at Washington, then I will end up there. If not, well, then it was smart to try and figure my future out again.”
Slocum said she does not have a list of top schools at this time but wants to explore all her options. ESPN ranks Slocum the No. 4 prospect in the 2016 recruiting class. Before committing to Washington, Slocum was also considering Arizona, Duke, Oregon and UCLA.
Slocum says she plans to sign her letter of an intent during the early basketball signing period in September.
