Catching Up with 2020 Michigan Commit Elise Stuck
CHARLEVOIX – High school girls basketball standout, Elise Stuck, verbally committed to play for the University of Michigan in 2020.
Stuck is Charlevoix’s all-time leading scorer with 1,494 points.
Basketball runs in the Stuck family. Elise’s mom started a travel team in Charlevoix, and her dad is the head coach of the varsity boys team. He also scored more than 2,400 points when he played at Manton, which is top ten in the state for career points. If that is not enough, Elise’s twin brother and younger brother also play varsity ball for the Rayders.
“We used to play two on two with my dad in our driveway, and I think that is kind of where it came from, but we will play one on one now,” said Stuck.
Elise has overcome a lot of adversity to have such an impressive career, but the 2019 season brings a new challenge: she cannot play.
Elise tore her ACL while playing in Louisville during the first week of July. She will have surgery in August, which means she must sit out her entire senior season.
Elise is keeping a positive attitude throughout this process and she wants her teammates to know she will do everything she can off the court.
“I’m going to be there and I’m ready to be the best water girl ever,” said Stuck with a smile.
Michigan gave Stuck an offer before her freshman year of high school and she has kept in touch with the Wolverines ever since. She will officially sign in November.
