CSUN women’s basketball team head coach Jason Flowers announced the signing of two new players to National Letters of Intent for the 2015-2016 season Friday April 17.

Claudia Ramos and Ameriya Jackson will be new additions to the reigning Big West Tournament Champions coming into the new season, and Flowers is excited to have them for their character and abilities on and off the court.

Jackson is a state-championship-winning point guard from Texas, while Ramos is a six-foot guard who boasts an international FIBA resume.

Ramos competed in last summer’s FIBA U-17 Women’s World Championships playing as a small forward and averaging seven points and 5.1 rebounds a game, before playing in the 2014 FIBA Americas U18 Championships and leading Mexico with 15 points against the USA team. She averaged 12 points a game, shooting 60 perecent at the field while attending the Instituto Tecnologico Campus Guadalajara.

Jackson’s track record is as impressive. The five-foot-seven point guard averaged 10.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.1 steals per game at Manvel High School in Manvel, Texas earning first team all-district and third team all-region honors. Jackson won the her high school’s first ever Texas Region III State Championship as a junior.

Ramos and Jackson are among three other acquisitions, with CSUN adding Channon Fluker, Nautica Morrow and Cheyenne Allen back in November 2014.
