Basketball life couldn’t be any better for rising Susan Wagner sophomore point guard Nicole Melious, as she adds another college offer to ever growing list. This time it’s the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, today her AAU team, Hoopers NY, announced.
Melious reopened her recruitment after verbally committing to Purdue, with the offer still standing.
Now, in addition to Hawaiʻi, the 5-foot-8 Staten Islander has offer from the likes of Rutgers, Quinnipiac, Seton Hall, Fordham, University of Denver, Manhattan College, US Naval Academy, University of Loyal Chicago, Syracuse, UNC Asheville, Georgia Tech, Butler, Ohio State, Xavier, among others.
That speaks volume to the type of student-athlete Melious is right now. And at just 15, she is likely to improve her hardwood skill set.
The question is, which colleges don’t want the talented player, but I digress.
Melious has been outstanding so far this summer, especially in Indianapolis, where she poured in 52 points in a game, and was held under 30 only twice in 13 contests.
Additionally, Melious averaged an impressive 32.5 points per tilt, to go along with 7.5 assists and 5.4 rebounds last month in the Pittsburgh Shootout with the Hoopers.
Futhermore, she enjoyed a tremendous freshman year with Susan Wagner, averaging a little under 28 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists per game for the 24-3 Lady Falcons.
Watch Melious put in some work in a speed drill.
