Freshmen Receive High Honorable Mention for 2014 Recruiting Class
July 28, 2014
MEMPHIS - -
The University of Memphis volleyball freshman class received “High Honorable Mention” recognition in the Prepvolleyball.com Top Collegiate Recruiting Classes of 2014.
The list ranks the top 30 schools ranked 1-30, with the next 25 listed as “Highest Honorable Mention” and 44 others receiving “High Honorable Mention” recognition.
The survey for the top collegiate recruiting classes is completed by a panel of college coaches who double as recruiting experts. The coaches represent every major conference in the country, plus some lower D-1 schools and some D-II and D-III schools as well.
The charge to these coaches was to judge each class, using both size and strength of the class and impact on that program as guides. I also asked the coaches not to judge based on immediate impact during the 2014 season, but to assess based on the cumulative impact the class could make in 4-5 years at the school. The classes consist only of players making their initial appearance in a four-year program.
Memphis volleyball opens up the 2014 season on Aug. 30-31 at the Marcia E. Hamilton Classic in St. Louis, Mo.
