DE PERE (WLUK) -- Through two seasons Jordan Meulemans has developed into one of the better girls basketball players in the state and with that comes attention.

The De Pere junior has received six Division I offers but she's not rushing to pick a school.

"Right now, kind of looking at them as all even but probably sooner rather than later I will start narrowing down," she said. "It's probably just going to come to me and whenever I know the school I'm going to know it. It will probably be sometime at the end of my high school season, but I don't know for sure yet."

Green Bay, Milwaukee, Marquette, Illinois State, Creighton and St. Thomas (Minn.) have offered Meulemans. Being from De Pere, the Green Bay offer sticks out as it's in her backyard and she likes how the Phoenix plays.

"I love Green Bay," Meulemans said. "They transition. They transition just how De Pere does. They want to play fast and play fast all the time.

"They just work hard and they love the coaches. They're so personable to talk to. I just love their program."

Redbirds coach Jeremy Boileau likes the Green Bay fit also, but says Meulemans just wants to help a team win.

"She just wants to go play and she wants to play fast offensively, defensively," he said. "That's been her mentality. I've had a lot of conversations with the colleges she's involved with and I definitely see a lot of her personality coming out in a lot of these coaches."

Meulemans could certainly receive more offers so she knows this AAU season she has to be on her game. She said Wisconsin Flight Elite, her AAU team, will play to September so she will have plenty of chances to draw more eyes.

The junior has the complete game. She is 6 feet with a wingspan of 6-2 and has range beyond the 3-point arc. In addition, she's great off the dribble. Defensively, with her length, she can match up at any position.

It's no wonder Division I schools are interested.

Meulemans said her approach to playing is simple and knows there's still time to impress colleges.

"All the time when I step on the court I just want to play my best," said Meulemans, who averaged 17 points per game last season. "It doesn't really matter who's watching, but sometimes it kind of does matter who's watching.

"I have all high school season to talk to coaches so I'm excited for what's to come."

With her future, there's a lot to be excited about.
