Ava Jones, a rising high school senior from Kansas who verbally committed to Iowa's women's basketball team Sunday, was seriously injured along with her parents when they were struck by a car in Louisville on Tuesday night.

Jones, a 6-foot-2 wing player, is No. 83 on the ESPN HoopGurlz top 100 prospects list for the class of 2023. She averaged 20.8 points, 15.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists last season for Nickerson High School in Kansas.

Jones initially committed to Arizona State, but re-opened her recruiting after longtime Sun Devils coach Charli Turner Thorne retired in March. Jones announced her commitment to Iowa on social media Sunday. Since she has not signed with the Hawkeyes, the school could not comment on Jones' condition, an Iowa spokesman told ESPN.
