    2012-13 Recruiting class

    What an exciting recruiting class Coach has announced for 2012-13. I am terribly impressed with Christy's (and her staff's) skill at coaching and recruiting. She constantly seeks excellence; it is apparent in how she handles herself on game-day and how she handles herself away from the court. We can see some great development of this year's rookies, as well as upperclassmen. Just wish volleyball got a bit more recognition; it is certainly deserved. Can't see ever giving up my VB season tickets!!!

    Yes, CJL saying, she thinks this class makes them a top 5 team in the future.

    definitely like the sound of someone who can play both setter and outside hitter, that is a rare, but deadly combo. Wondering if CJL is considering going to a 2 setter offense at times.

    That was my thought too - that we might go to a 6-2 offense. Sounds like a really great class, excited for the next few years!

    Yes, and considering TX wanted Malloy (we beat out TX for a recruit!), that would be my hunch. Maybe it wouldn't be all the time, but certainly could mix things up.

    Re: 2012-13 Recruiting class

    Thanks for the update. Yes, our volleyball program is the best kept secret in the state (from our beloved media). There's been pretty good attendance at several of the meets. I hope the trend continues similar to the uptrend that started when coach Fennelly took over WBB. This program deserves a lot of support.

    That's awesome to hear. I enjoyed to to volleyball games when I was a student a few years ago, I should follow them more now.

    Re: 2012-13 Recruiting class

    I wonder how that class ranks against other elite programs

    I have had 4 season tickets for the past 3 years even though I cannot make but a couple matches a year. It is my way of showing support to Christy Johnson and what she has accomplished here at ISU.

    I encourage others to do the same. If you do not use the tickets, you can donate them to the local Youth Shelter or some other charity to use.

    Had a cousin graduate through the program a few years ago, and you could see even back then Christy was building a monster program.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see it be top 15 or even top 10. Last year we had one top 50 recruit and we were ranked 25th recruiting class(i think), but this year we have 3 in the top 50 and 4 in the top 100. Really awesome job by CJL and staff.

    Re: 2012-13 Recruiting class

    Some have posted doubts about being able to recruit top players to ISU. I think CJ joins Fred, BF, Corey Ihmels and Jay Ronayne in proving that we can if we try. These five coaches, and likely Jackson, will have teams vying to finish in the top 20 every year. VB is likely to have the highest national season end ranking of any sport on campus this year and the future looks even better.

    Re: 2012-13 Recruiting class

    CJL was at the Cyclone lunch at Hickory Hall about a month ago. Second time I've seen her speak there but she seems like a great person. She is easy to listen to and very impressive on her responses to questions.
