Dixon’s Brenna Melvin Commits to Play College Volleyball at NIU

Dixon High School Senior Brenna Melvin will continue her volleyball career at Northern Illinois University.

Melvin has a verbal commitment to play college volleyball with the Huskies beginning this fall.

Melvin says it really is a dream come true for her to be able to play volleyball at the next level, “It’s one of the coolest feelings that I have ever had. It is so unreal to me because I’ve had this dream for so long.”

Melvin says she was deciding between Southern Mississippi and UNC-Greensboro when the call came to her and within a week, her pick was NIU, “NIU just spoke to me. The coaches, all of them are amazing and saw a lot of potential in me. NIU feels like home away from home.”

Northern Illinois University is a Division 1 University in DeKalb. The Huskies are a member of the Mid-American Conference. The NIU Volleyball Huskies went 8-22 in the 2019 season.
