Nike signed Kelsey Plum, former Washington star and the first pick in this year’s WNBA Draft, to a multi-year endorsement deal.

“Nike is the undisputed leader in basketball and it’s a dream come true to become an official member of the family,” said Plum in a release. “The brand’s bold vision for future innovation and commitment to making athletes better made the choice clear.”

This past season the Pac-12 Player of the Year set the NCAA women’s record for career points (3,527) and points in a season (1,109, 2016-17). She ranks second all-time, male or female, in NCAA history for total points.

Plum swept the season’s player of the year awards including the Naismith Award, the Wade Trophy, the Dawn Staley Award, the Nancy Lieberman award and several others. She will begin her pro career with the San Antonio Stars.
