The 6-2 forward led Wamego High School to a state title in 2013 and a state runner-up finish in 2014, while playing for her father, Jim.
A tremendous long-range shooter with excellent all-around skills on the perimeter, Page averaged 18.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.8 blocks and 3.2 assists during her four-year career as a starter.
“Kaylee’s a great shooter and can score in multiple other ways. She is well coached and really has a feel for the game," Nebraska Coach Connie Yori said. "She is a gym rat, very competitive, engaged and focused. She is a good leader, student and teammate. She is a very active and aggressive offensive player. She will be a great fit for our system and our style of play because of her versatility.”

She helped Wamego to a Class 4A state runner-up finish with a 24-1 record and claimed Gatorade Kansas Player-of-the-Year honors. She was also a nominee for the McDonald's High School All-America game.
Page closed her four-year career with a school-record 1,755 points to go along with 771 rebounds. She added 293 assists, 167 steals and 355 blocked shots. A tremendous long-range shooter, Page hit 181 threes in her 93-game career, while knocking down 35.3 percent of her long-range attempts. She was also an 84 percent free throw shooter in her career.
She capped her prep career by competing for the Blue Team in the Kansas Basketball Coaches Association All-Star game in Topeka in August of 2014.
