East Central Girls Basketball: Sania Wells signs with Auburn

According to ESPN of the less than 300 high school girls basketball players listed as three star recruits or above for the class of 2019, East Central’s Sania Wells is the only one from Mississippi.

She wasn’t able to please everyone when she committed to Auburn in February, but she certainly made a lot of people proud today by signing her national letter of intent with the Tigers.

“Can’t go wrong with SEC football, watching it every Saturday with my family and then watching basketball games. It’s just I’ve wanted to be in it since I was young, and it feels good to finally be a part of it.”

Following in the footsteps of South Alabama running back and older brother Tony Brown, Sania Wells joining the division I ranks at this point is practically a family tradition. “It means a lot because I watched my brother before me and my older brother before him do it and I’ve just been waiting for this moment for like two years now, so it meant a lot.”

Wells is part of a five player signing day class for Auburn where the 27th ranked point guard in the nation has already had the better part of nine months to process her future in the plains. “It sunk into me as soon as I like committed. Like I normally have to get used to players bigger and stronger than me, but I can’t wait to be up there. I cannot.”

During her junior season, Wells averaged 25 points, seven rebounds, six assists, and six steals per game. She’ll have a chance to fill the stat sheet sooner than later with the Tigers who lose their starting point guard to graduation, just in time for the Hurley hoop star to shout out ‘War Eagle.’ “Ya’ll can expect me coming up in Auburn and showing out, being point guard so I can’t wait.”

A four-sport athlete, Wells also plays softball, soccer, and volleyball for the Hornets. In 2018, big brother Tony Brown was Mississippi’s Gatorade Player of the Year for football.
