  • Volleyball Recruiting - Class of 2019

    I believe this is the 1st Shocker Volleyball commitment for the Class of 2019:

    OTVA‏ @OTVAvolleyball Feb 8

    Congratulations to @ariannaarjo on committing to play at Wichita State!! @GoShockers #OTVA #committed

    Arianna is a 5'8" Libero from Bishop Moore Hiigh School in Orlanda, Florida.

    To the best of my recollection the Shocks haven't had many, if any, players from Florida. There are 12 years of rsoters on (2006 - 2017) and none of the players wre from Florida. Perhaps joining the AAC may have been a factor here.

    Arianno somehwat resembles Shocker Hall of Famer Kelly Broussard. We can only hope that extends to the way she plays.

          Lambo says you have to get them while they are young in the game of volleyball. I guess we need to start a 2020 recruiting thread. Of course, Marriah can't sign a letter of intent November of 2019.

          Marriah, who played for Beatrice her freshman year where her Mom was the head coach, was regarded as the top freshman in Nebraska. She transferred to Lincoln Lutheran for her sophomore year (2017-18) and apparently her Mom was no longer coaching Beatrice.

          Here are couple of articles about Marriah, a 6-0 outside hitter:

          Here are some highlight videos of Marriah:

          My guess is Lambo is thinking 6-rotation skils with Marriah along the lines of Jody Larson.

        Interesting nugget from Rich Kern whom I hold in exceedingly high regard. Nicole Anderson from Plano, Tx has been committed to Boston College for almost a year but yesterday apparently changed to WSU.

        PrepVolleyball still shows her a Golden Eagle commit, but if you Google Search you'll see a result saying that too linked to her Texas Club site, but if you click on the link it's not available so I think they took it down. The 6'0" OH is entering her senior year in high school at Plano East.
