Shyanne Sellers has made her choice.
The Aurora junior guard announced her verbal commitment to play college basketball for the University of Maryland in a Sunday tweet.
"First of all, I would like to (thank) my parents, Coach Carlos, SMAC family, and all the coaches that have recruited me throughout the years," Sellers wrote on Twitter. "Without them, I would not be in the position I am in today. Lastly, I would like to thank (Maryland) Coach (Brenda) Frese and the whole Maryland staff for giving me this amazing opportunity to continue playing the game that I love."
Her father, Brad Sellers, a former professional basketball player and the mayor of Warrensville Heights, also chimed in on Twitter.
"Today, I want to say how proud (I am) of my daughter Shyanne Sellers and her verbal commitment to attend and play b-ball for the University of Maryland," Sellers wrote. "We all are very thankful for the opportunity that she has been given! From rec league in Aurora, to SMAC Ballers, and now the Big Ten!"
Sellers, the 34th-ranked player in the Class of 2021, according to ESPN, finished her junior season averaging 20.8 points, 11.0 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 2.2 steals for the Greenmen. That included scoring her 1,000th career point in just the second game of her junior season. She earned Suburban American Player of the Year for the third straight season, Division I Northeast Inland District Player of the Year, first team All-Ohio and was a finalist for Ohio’s Ms. Basketball award, which went to Kettering Fairmont senior Madeline Westbeld.
As a sophomore, Sellers averaged 23.6 points and 9.6 rebounds. She was rewarded with first team all-district and first team all-state honors — both for the first time. As a freshman, she averaged 15 points and nine boards, earning second team all-district and honorable mention all-state.
The Terrapins have put up their own impressive numbers. Sellers will be joining a Maryland team that has won five of the last six Big Ten championships (and 22 conference titles overall).
Prior to picking Maryland, Sellers tweeted out her nine finalists Aug. 11: Maryland, Michigan State, Indiana, Florida State, Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, Louisville, UCLA and Purdue-Fort Wayne.
