    Beachwood’s Aryana Jackson signs with Texas A&M-Corpus Christi


    Aryana Jackson on Thursday became the third Beachwood student-athlete to sign a National Letter of Intent this week. Jackson will continue her education and basketball career at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.

    “It was just about the feeling,” said Jackson of her decision. “I felt at home. Even though I’m going thousands of miles away, I still felt at home.”

    Jackson, a guard, averaged 14.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game last season. She shot 31-percent from 3-point range with 51 3-pointers on the season and she shot 51-percent from inside the arc on her way to earning Second Team All-Chagrin Valley Conference and third team All-Northeast Lakes District honors.

    She was named Beachwood’s defensive MVP and also scored the 1,000 point of her career in 2013-2014.

    “Aryana brought another scorer/defender to our team last year and was a big part of our second straight regional final appearance,” said Beachwood coach Mike Coreno. “As a player, Aryana has the complete game. She can score inside and outside and is a great defender.”

    Jackson has high expectations for her senior season at Beachwood but she’s also excited about what the future holds in college.

    “It’s a little scary,” she said. “It’s a little scary because I’m not sure how they’re going to run it in college. I have a feeling it’s going to be really fun and a whole new experience for me to find myself.”
