COLUMBIA – Mizzou Women’s Basketball announced three new additions to the 2017 recruiting class on Wednesday. Head Coach Robin Pingeton says Elle Brown (Columbia, Mo.), Kelsey Winfrey (Lebanon, Mo.) and Nadia Green (Homewood, Ill.) all signed letters to join the list of future Tigers.

Brown is the latest name to join the team from right here in Columbia, though she only transferred to Rock Bridge for her last high school season after success in Iowa at Johnston High School.

At Johnston, Brown saw plenty of success on the court. She averaged 11.9 points per game on the way to a school-record of 22 wins and a state runner-up finish.

She also earned a fair amount of attention on the track. Brown was a three-time Iowa State Champions qualifier in track and field and holds school records in the 400-meter sprint and sprint medley relay.

The success appears to run in the family. Brown is the daughter of former Mizzou Track & Field All-American and U.S. Olympian, Natasha Brown, and Assistant Athletic Director for the Mizzou Made program, Brian Brown.

Another in-state product, Winfrey is the most decorated girls basketball player in Lebanon High School history. The 5-foot-9 guard holds 21 school records after three seasons, including career points (1,425), career assists (212), career rebounds (579) and career steals (320). She was named 2016 First-Team All-State after averaging a school-record 21.2 points per game as a junior. She is also a three-time First-Team All-Ozark Conference selection, three-time First-Team All-District honoree and was a 2016 Gatorade Player of the Year finalist.

Winfrey chose Mizzou over interest from other big-name schools like North Carolina and Oklahoma State.

Green is a guard from the Chicago area, but has shown a versatile ability to play multiple positions during her career at Homewood-Flossmoor High School.

Another 5-foot-9 guard, she averaged 15 points and six rebounds during her junior campaign. She earned 2016 IBCA Class 3A/4A Second-Team All-State honors and All-Conference recognition.

Mizzou Women's Basketball opens the 2016-17 season at Mizzou Arena on Friday, Nov. 11, against Abilene Christian as part of the Preseason WNIT. Tip off is set for 7 p.m.
