HUNTINGTON, Ind. – Huntington University head coach Lori Culler has announced the signing of Columbus Grove standout Jade Clement. Clement is following in her father Jeff’s footsteps, a 1991 graduate of Huntington and three-year member of the men’s basketball team.

Known for her ability to score in a variety of ways, Clement currently ranks third on the Bulldogs’ all-time scoring list with over 1,200 career points and still counting. As a senior, the 5-4 guard is averaging nearly 14 points per game while dishing out 2.5 assists, collecting 2.4 rebounds and swiping 2.4 steals per night.

With senior awards still to come, Clement’s resume is already littered with basketball honors highlighted by being named the PCL Player of the Year and Northwest Conference Player of the Year as a junior. She has also claimed two First Team All-Conference honors, First and Second Team PCL accolades and was recognized by the Ohio High School Athletic Association as a Division III All-District 8 First Team and All-Ohio Special Mention.

“Jade is one of the top players in both the Putnam County League and the Northwest Conference, so we're thrilled that she's chosen to follow in her dad's footsteps to play basketball for HU,” said Culler. “She is a complete player with her ability to score in a variety of ways as well as the ability to apply good pressure defensively with her quick hands and anticipation skills.

“She also brings a lot of success with her from a strong Columbus Grove program. We expect Jade to contribute early and often.”

Jade is the daughter of Jeff and Nichole of Columbus Grove, Ohio.
