Rock Valley College's Aleesha Cleaver signed a National Letter of Intent today to continue her academic pursuits and basketball career at Upper Iowa University, an NCAA Division II university located in Fayette, Iowa.

Cleaver, a 5'8 sophomore guard from Dakota High School, averaged 10.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.3 steals per game last season for the Golden Eagles as she helped lead them to 28-6 record and a runner-up finish at the NJCAA tournament. She also made the President's List for the fall semester after achieving a 4.0 grade point average.

Cleaver made her signing official on Thursday afternoon in a brief ceremony held on the RVC campus among teammates, family, and friends.
