Maryland women’s basketball commit Riley Nelson, a guard from Bullis High School in Potomac, was named the Gatorade Maryland Girls Basketball Player of the Year on Wednesday.
Nelson was named a McDonald’s All-American this past season and is the No. 18 recruit in the 2023 class according to ESPN.com. She led her school to a 19-10 record and the Independent School League Division AA Tournament semifinals while averaging 16.6 points and 10.9 rebounds per game this recent season.
She is one of the players that head coach Brenda Frese has attracted in a recruiting class ranked No. 7 in the country by ESPN.com. It’s a big move for Maryland to get the best player in the state to stay in the area for her college career.
