The daughter of two Purdue alums, Megan Skouby is a star player and student entertaining offers from across the
nation. Her 6'6 height has the obvious advantages, but she rounds out her game with a deft passing eye and a
legitimate perimeter shot. At 6'6, Megan Skouby is a college coach's dream come true. Her high school coach
compares her game and style of play to Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain for the simple fact, "She can do it all."
She can run the floor, she can shoot from the perimeter, she can dominate the paint, and rarely gets into foul
trouble. In competition the summer of 2004 at the USA Basketball Developmental Camp, she did not miss a
freethrow the entire camp.
She is regarded as one of the top centers in the country and was one of 48 juniors selected to participate in
the USA Women's Youth Development Festival, where she teamed with Purdue recruit Jodi Howell on the North team.
As a junior, she led Mentor High School to a 24-2 record, averaging 17.9 points and pulling down nearly 12
rebounds a game, while shooting 63% from the field and 78% from the foul line. In her three years, the Cardinals
have a 66-10 record, including two district Division I championships.
Skouby was also a volleyball standout at Mentor, before giving up the sport as a senior to concentrate on
basketball. She was named 3rd team All-State in volleyball as a junior. Skouby has reduced her list of schools to
four, and plans to sign during the early signing period in November. She plans to enter a science-related program
in college, and holds a 3.9 GPA.
