As noted earlier, the top volleyball schools among those five would be Texas, Minnesota and UCLA, probably in that order (UCLA has had retention issues and seems to be fading). Tennessee has had some good years but is still recovering from a coaching change and the SEC isn't super-relevant in volleyball (although Florida and Kentucky are usually good). Arizona has good seasons when they snag a top talent or two but has trouble being a consistent force in the PAC.Am I correct in remembering that Lauren is the one who wants to play both volleyball and basketball? If so, I can't imagine that she could get a better pair of head coaches than Whalen and Hugh. I am an avid Gopher volleyball fan, but don't know much about the volleyball programs outside the BIG (which is THE conference for college volleyball), but are all of the schools in her final five volleyball powers also? I was a bit surprised to see that Nebraska was not in her final five, as they are close to home and they, like the Gophers, are volleyball powers. If the Gophers can get her, this would be a very good get.
Who do the gophers have offered for 2021?
Recruiting is in a Quiet Period between August 1 & September 8. Recruiting is shut down August 12-16.Nope nothing. Recruiting has ground to a halt with no news. I was kinda thinking/hoping we would have 2020 commit early August
Carr has started every game for K-State this season and is averaging 27 minutes and 14 points per game. That seems like pretty good production for a sophomore. Ayoka Lee of Byron and Rachel Ranke of Eastview are also starting for the 4-4 Wildcats.This doesn't quite fit in this thread but not sure where it does: I'm curious to know if anyone has any insight into Christianna Carr? I recall her seeming like a big deal on this or the previous board until Kansas State essentially bought her services by giving her dad a job. She's a sophomore now and neither she nor the team seems to have made much of a splash (although she did make the all-freshman team last season). Any thoughts, anyone?
Woodard might be the most athletic player I've seen on the aau level. Expect some dunks in the next couple years. Heres a little article on her with a video of her dunking.Gophers get a commit from JUCO forward Daja Woodard. Guessing her and Sconiers expected to compete for post position after Taiye graduates.
also thinking this is a Coach Carly connection as her top 5 out of high school was Louisville, Michigan State, Maryland, Ohio State and Mississippi State.
listed height ranges between 6’1-6’3. Add that to 6’2 Sconiers, 6’2 Sissoko 6’4 Hedman and gophers might actually be able to play two posts next year
