    Coach Moynihan: "Nikia is an exceptionally gifted athlete. She is one of those players that catches everyone's eye with her extraordinary pace. She can play upfront or in defense, but will likely play defense for us. Her pace will be a welcome addition and she will help us contain some of the athletic forwards we face in the Big Ten. While fast, she is also quite good on the ball and will be excellent building out of the back for us."
