Maryland women’s basketball picked up the first commitment in its 2021 class as guard Shyanne Sellers announced her pledge to the Terps.
“First of all, I would like to think my parents, Coach Carlos, Smac family, and all the coaches that have recruited me throughout the years, without them I would not be in the position I am in today,” Sellers posted on Twitter. “Lastly, I would like to thank Coach Frese and the whole Maryland staff for giving me this amazing opportunity to continue playing the game that I love. I am excited to announce that I have decided to further my academic and athletic career to The University of Maryland. Go Terps!”
The Aurora, Ohio, native is ranked by ESPN as the No. 34 player in the class of 2021 and is the seventh-highest ranked commit to announce her pledge.
As a junior, Sellers was named to the Division I OPSWA All-Ohio First-Team after averaging 21 points per game. She stands at 6’2, according to MaxPreps.
Head coach Brenda Frese managed to sign Angel Reese, the No. 2 prospect in the 2020 class, but 2021 is just as pivotal of a class with St. John’s College High School guard Azzi Fudd ranked as the No. 1 prospect in the country.
