Grace Mitchell signed with the University of Nebraska in 2015.Snipes, who said she was wavering between FIU and Rice, is expected to formally sign for the Golden Panthers on National Signing Day on Nov. 9, 2016.â€œWhen they (FIU) started recruiting me, they were supportive in every way on and off the court and that was a major thing for me,â€ Snipes said. â€œWhen I went up there for my official visit, I enjoyed the girls and the campus. So thatâ€™s when I knew Iâ€™d be great at FIU.â€FIU is a member of Conference USA. In 2015-16, the womenâ€™s program went 2-14 and were 5-26 overall.â€œI have a cousin who lives in Miami, and I didnâ€™t know much about the school,â€ Snipes said. â€œWhen I learned more about the school and got to know the coaches a lot better, I was convinced. They have been great to me since April.â€Snipes, a 5-11, senior, is expected to be a four-year starter when she starts this season for the Crusaders. In her 64 varsity games, she has averaged 10.3 points per game, scoring 662 points throughout her career. She has a 47 percent shooting percentage.In 2015-16, Snipes helped Wellington break the state record in three-point shooting percentage where she went 21 of 54 from the fried for a 39 percent success rate.Snipes helped Wellington to a 24-1 record in 2015-16 and a third-place finish in the Class 4A Div. 1 state tournament in Salina. Her last performance on the hardwood for Wellington was a memorable one as she hit a buzzer beating 3-pointer to lift the Crusaders to three point victory over Labette County.This summer, Snipes played in a summer league in Italy, and has played extensively in various summer basketball leagues.According to ESPN.Com, Snipes is considered a three-star recruit. In the evaluation report it states she is an â€œagile perimeter prospect elevates in mid-range game; length, wingspan, active in passing lanes, finishes in uptempo.â€Snipes received an â€œ88â€ scouts grade.She was an honorable mention Class 4A all-state in 2015.Snipes is currently playing tennis for Wellington and plays with her basketball teammate Avery Rusk in doubles competition.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.
