Recruiting report: Millard South girls basketball star Maddie Grull has offers piling up

Millard South's Maddie Krull received scholarship offers from Denver and Northern Colorado last week, joining several other programs. 

Maddie Krull has been a household name in Nebraska high school girls basketball since bursting onto the scene as a freshman.

The 5-foot-10 guard will be a junior at Millard South this season. Last week Denver and Northern Colorado joined the list of schools offering her a scholarship.

South Dakota, South Dakota State, Wyoming, Colorado State, Illinois State, Eastern Illinois, UNO, Drake and Minnesota had already offered. Nebraska, Dayton, Wichita State, UMKC and Princeton and are in regular contact and could follow suit.

Why all the interest? At the top of the list are her energy and competitiveness. “Those are the things that stick out to them,” Krull said.

Krull is not in a rush to make a decision.

“There is a chance I could commit in two months or it could be a year from now,” she said. “I’m taking one day at a time.”

Krull and her All Nebraska Attack teammates are in the middle of a two-tournament swing that started in Washington earlier this week and will finish at the Blue Star Nationals in Orlando, Florida, this weekend.

She is looking forward to the weekend and the last NCAA live recruiting period of the summer.

“We have a good chance of winning this weekend and I want to enjoy the end of the summer and playing with my teammates,” she said.

She still has to seasons before jumping to the next level. And she aims to keep getting better.

“I’m working on finishing around the rim better, being a better ball-handler and making jump shots consistently,” she said.
