It seems as if every time you turn around, Susan Wagner point guard Nicole Melious is adding another college scholarship offer to her ever-growing list.
This time it’s two: Vanderbilt University and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Women’s Basketball teams have stepped up and invited Melious to be part of the Commodores and Gulls girls’ basketball programs, with in hors of each other, today Hoopers NY tweeted.
Melious, a rising sophomore who plays AAU play with the Hoopers NY, reopened her recruitment after verbally committing to Purdue, with the offer still standing.
The Staten Islander now has at least 18 offers, and show no sign of slowing down.
Melious’s college list includes offers from the likes of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, 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.
The above list of quality women’s basketball programs confirms the type of student-athlete Melious is, on and off the court.
Furthermore, the 5-foot-8 dynamic player is a tremendously hard worker who’s bound to receive more offers as her high school career progresses.
Note: I added the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s offer to the story after publishing that Vanderbilt offered Melious, as both schools offers were very close together.
