Berkeley Prep outside hitter Jordan Burgess is only a sophomore, but college already is on her mind. When asked how much she thinks about playing at the next level, Burgess quickly replied, “All the time.”

A 6-foot standout with superb all-court skills, Burgess arguably is the top 10th-grader in the state, and possibly the country.

Yes, she’s that good.

Colleges can’t officially offer scholarships until she’s a junior, but plenty of them have expressed interest. In fact, Burgess already is “trying to narrow it down.”

Which schools does she like?

On Saturday, she mentioned the following: California, Florida, Nebraska and Texas. Not surprisingly, all are national powers.

“I really want to go to the best school I can,” Burgess said.

Burgess also excels in the class.

She currently maintains a 4.0 GPA.
