The Prospect Report

April 26th Edition

Mallory Matheny-Setter-Mintonette

The Ohio Setter continues to be talked about as one of the more solid picks in the class  The interest is Matheny is national, but the question is whether she will look around or if she is a lock to stay local.

Kendall Northern-MB-Elevation

The high-flying Northern is narrowing her list and pinpointing where she will camp this Summer.  She’s put up quite a diverse group of schools that she will attend in June/July.  Her stock has risen significantly as schools have watched her the past month.  It will be interesting to see if Northern makes it to the July camps before committing or if a decision comes sooner.

Britni Silver-MB/OH-East Carolina Junior Volleyball Club

Silver is a beast that goes untalked about because she plays on a smaller club team, but this kid has game for days.  The North Carolina resident is getting serious ACC interest and some looks from Top 10 programs. She dominates on the court including 22 Kills against Metro VB earlier this year.

Audrey Flanagan-OH-SCVC

The dynamic OH is in discussion for the best prospect in California.  She will get offers nationally, but does she leave the West Coast? Many compare her arm to be amongst the 5-6 best in the class and many Top 10 programs are looking to add that one big weapon so she will get plenty of interest.

Bryah Breux-OPP-Metro

Viewed by some Top 15 schools as the “highest ceiling” in the class.  Her current size is already intimidating at the college level, give her the training of a college program and she could be a force at any program.  Watch for her to land on a Top 15 program if not bigger.

Layli Ostovar-OH-Mizuno Long Beach

Maybe the most decorated athlete in California, Ostovar already has a busy camp tour set up.  She has already done some homework and cut her list to a decent number of schools.  She could look to decide shortly after attending her summer camps.  She is another national recruit who will have offers from every conference.

Nadiya Johnson-OPP-Metro

The most athletic OPP in the class Johnson is being looked at by all the big names.  She hasn’t talked much about what will be important in her decision, but it will be interesting to see how important the “academic piece” fits into her decision.  

Sara Bowcutt-OPP-AZ Storm Elite

Bowcutt impressed in her team’s high finish at Lone Star.  Sara is another example of a talented athlete who is on a deep team of multiple high-end prospects.  She gained more interest with her play last week.  Bowcutt may have opportunities very close to home.

Emma Keeping-Setter/OPP-MI Elite

Keeping’s recent play has brought more interest from schools.  ACC and SEC schools looking at Keeping and you have to imagine there will be some interest from regional schools.

Bellamie Beus-OH-Idaho Crush

The dynamic and explosive Beus is gaining serious attention from SEC schools.  She is also very high on the list of some Big Ten schools so the wait is on to see just how far from home she wants to go.

Shuffling the Middles

We have already touched on Northern, but there is a big discussion right now on how to rank the top middles in this deep class.  Ella Andrews (Legacy) and Brooke Harwood (AZ Storm) continue to gain steam from some big, big programs.  Harwood’s court may have had as many eyes as any, last weekend, at Lonestar.  Likewise, Andrews seems to get more and more interest from Top 10 programs looking to add 1 solid MB to this class.  Evaluation and ranking could go right up until the Open Period begins.

Sidney Burley-Libero-MN Select

The electric Burley spent last Summer attending camps close to home.  This Summer she plans to look around SEC and ACC country.  Is she just getting a different perspective further from home or could those be landing spots for one of the fastest risers in this class?  

Gabby DiVita-OH-Legacy Volleyball

Ever since we interviewed DiVita in February we have been trying to predict where she may go.  She is in the heart of Big Ten territory, but will also gather some serious ACC interest.  Gabby brings so many intangibles to go with her technique and is one of the best first-contact OH’s in the class.
