April 30, 2008
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana head women's basketball coach Felisha Legette-Jack has announced the signing of Ashlee Mells to the 2008-09 roster. Mells comes to Indiana from South Grand Prairie High School in Grand Prairie, Texas.
"Ashlee is a welcome addition to our Hoosier family," Legette-Jack said. "She will bring us another piece of the puzzle of building our championship program. Ashlee is a player that loves basketball and has a friendship with one of our current players. She and Jori Davis played on the same eighth grade AAU team that finished second in the nation. Our goal is for our program to reach that same level and Ashlee will definitely help us."
Mells, a 5-8 guard, averaged 15 points, six rebounds and two assists per game as a senior at South Grand Prairie. She was a 2008 McDonald's All-America nominee and earned All-District 7 honors. She is ranked 86th nationally on the Dan Olson Collegiate Girls Basketball Report. Mells is also ranked the 14th best combo guard in the nation on Olson's report on girlsbasketballreport.com.
She also earned all-state accolades and was the District 6 Most Valuable Player in 2006.
Mells joins 6-2 forward Danilsa Andujar from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., 6-3 forward Sasha Chaplin from St. Petersburg, Fla. and 6-0 forward Lindsay Enterline from Monroeville, Ind. in the Hoosiers' 2008 class.
