    Volleyball Recruits - 2012

    With three seniors graduating in Victoria Henson (OH), Ashley Mass (DS/L). and Cassie Pratt (S/DS), we know Christy has added three 2011 recruits in Tory Knuth (MB), Tori Hurtt (OH), and Taylor Goetz (S/DS).

    After next season we will say good-bye to four seniors in Debbie Stadick (MB), Kelsey Peterson (RS), Caitlin Mahoney (DS), and Carly Jensen (OH). From what I have been able to find, Christy already has four commits for 2012 to replace them:

    Mckenzie Bigbee, 6'1" OH - Williamsburg - Top 50 in junior class

    Morgan Kuhrt, 6'0" OH - Waverly-Shell Rock see article: Ames Tribune > Archives > Ames Tribune > Sports > ISU volleyball: Bigbee, Kuhrt commit to play for Cyclones

    Caitlin Nolan, 5'6" L - Southlake, TX scroll down link for pic: Texas Advantage Volleyball Club

    Andie Malloy, 6'1" S - Lucas, TX Top 50 in junior class

    Nice to see Christy get a couple more top 50 recruits, and to follow BF's lead to grab a couple of Texas players. Also note the height of the setter Malloy. Any concern of not having height at setter when Landwehr is done can be put to rest.

    Nice class of recruits. Our talent has been great with coach. Would love to see some impact players right away, even out of the kids coming in. Why do we have to wait until Landwehr is done? I hate to single her out, but this team is lacking something to get over the hump, from being good to being great. I would hope that the best setters and passers hit the court.

    Landwehr was just a freshman last year, you know? Criminy.

    Re: Volleyball Recruits - 2012

    I think she won't be junior eligiblilty wise until next fall. She saw limited action her freshman year and this last season was her first major action.

    Don't forget ISU will be "adding" Hockaday this year as well.

    Re: Volleyball Recruits - 2012

    Two Iowa preps in the class of 2011, Haley Eckerman and Ali Stark, would have been "impact players," but instead chose to play for Texas (Eckerman) and Illinois (Stark).
    Eckerman is one of the top 3 national recruits, and Stark is top 50.
    Here's hoping Christy builds a fence around the state!

    What was the deal with Eckerman? I think she wanted to play with some girls on her AAU team that ended up at UT, also. That was frustrating, who knows, maybe she'll get homesick.

    Eckerman is a big=time disruptive diva who has caused numerous issues on her club teams. I doubt she will be a productive player at Texas.

    For whatever reason, Ali Stark wanted to play in the Big 10. She chose Illinois over Penn State. I'm sure Christy would have loved to sign Stark but she probably isn't losing any sleep over not signing Eckerman.

    Christy also has a verbal comittment from another very highly recruited setter, Kathryn Gallagher, from 1st Alliance VBC in the Chicago area. Word is that she is very athletic and a great floor leader.

    Does that mean Christy may be going to a 6-2 system in 2013?

    It definitely gives her that option. I guess only Christy knows at this time but she is going to have two great setters in her cabinet.

    Mckenzie Bigbee and Morgan Kuhrt made the all tournament team at USAV Junior National Championships. Bigbee was the MVP. Their team, Six Pack out of Cedar Falls won the 18 National Tournament.

    Re: Volleyball Recruits - 2012

    #80 Kathryn Gallagher made 2012 PrepVolleyball.com Senior Aces (Top 100): "One of the fastest setters in the class of 2012, Gallagher’s play is cat-like in that she is quick, bouncy and determined to get what she wants. She rarely needs help getting to any passes and takes a majority of those with her hands. And what beautiful hands they are! Gallagher’s high release holds the middle blocker at bay until she’s ready to deliver an accurate and tactically smart set to one of her hitters. Quick defensively -- her speed allows her to get to most balls on her feet – and possessing a great jump float serve, Gallagher is more than just an assist machine. She also blocks pretty well for a small setter. “Probably her greatest asset is her ability to assess the situation and make a great decision in a calm fashion regardless of where our team stands in the match,” said York head coach Patty Iverson. Gallagher will bring her dynamic play and intensity for winning to the Iowa State Cyclones in the fall of 2012"

    I am sure the other 2012 recruits will make it too. Great to see a strong class coming.

    Do you now know what Andie Malloy and Mackenzie Bigbee are ranked?
