Legette-Jack Inks Fourth For 2008

The IU women’s team announced today that a fourth member of the 2008 recruiting class has signed to begin play the Hoosiers this coming fall.

Ashlee Mells

Ashlee Mells, a 5-8 guard, posted averages of 15 points, six boards, and two assists as a senior at South Grand Prairie (Tex.) High School, earning a McDonald’s All-American nomination.

A factor in her choice to come to Bloomington may have been a long-standing acquaintance with Hoosier freshman Jori Davis, who played high school ball in Rochester, New York but was an AAU teammate of Mells on an eighth-grade team that finished second nationally at a tournament in Amarillo.

“Our goal is for our program to reach that same level and Ashlee will definitely help us,” Legette-Jack said in the release.

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.


  1. Um, a McD AA for the women’s team? That’s, uh, pretty good for us, right? Crap, I might have to start following them more closely.

  2. JIM—

    I hope that wasn’t misleading. Mells was not selected as a McDonald’s All-American, just nominated.

    But, in my humble opinion, you might have to start watching them more closely since they are returning a solid freshman class, including Davis, that appears to be the core of the team for the next few seasons, as well as retaining the services of post duo Whitney Thomas and Amber Jackson for one year and consummate scorer Jamie Braun for two.

  3. Great news…IU seems to be showing steady improvement…should have a good nucleus for next year…glad to see they got some size, that has been a weakness – depth inside
    Looking forward to the 08-09 season, men and women

  4. term and should never have been trade marked in the first place. But they have to prove it. Bruce sets out to gather the evidence.

    At the same time another small family business in the US are being sued by Deckers for calling their boots uggs.
