    ***Official Early Signing Day Thread***

    As stated in other threads, our large freshman class this year limits how many we can sign today.

    Did CJL put off any announcements yesterday to stay focused on K-State. Besides being on national TV, this game was as big as it gets for the conference standings and the all-important RPI

    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    Ciara is a get from Minny. She had a verbal commit and apparently something went down and now she's here. Maria was honorable mention Under Armour All-American for high school volleyball.

    And look at how tall these girls are! Maybe we'll finally conquer the block!

    Yeah, Capezio committed to Minnesota when she was a soph - would also like to know what happened...great signing for CJL.

    I like the class. Clara sounds like a big get that everyone knows, while the other two were under the radar for their own reasons. If I recall, Matlock did not have the national accolades of many of the other girls. We got some serious height in two and another who can jump out of the gym, and CJL compares to Vic Henson. With who is coming back, there won't be pressure to play them early, although I could see Clara pushing for PT.

    Re: ***Official Early Signing Day Thread***

    If Capezio committed when she was a soph, that wuld been for a coach no longer there. IIRC, an assistant took the program over last year as a caretaker for this year's coach, who was the US National Team coach (men's, I think).

    EDIT - Take the if out of the remember part (and yes, I'm shocked).

    Second EDIT - From Hugh's bio, he coached men for 2008 Olympics and women for 2012 Olympics.

    Ciara played through a knee injury this post season and now that the season is over I assume will have surgery. I assume the injury is why Coach McCutcheon pulled her scholly as she injured the knee last year as well, but who knows... Heal up, get stronger and fight for Iowa State!

    I saw Samara play a couple times and she is a beast athletically, extremely raw though. So much potential, you could tell she hasn't been playing organized volleyball her whole life. It will be fun to watch her progress and hopefully dominate in the future.

    If Maria compares to Henson in the view of Coach, she must be very good indeed. The brief bio, stressing her academics, her weight-lifting, her quickness, etc., made me think of Wonder Woman.

    too bad this one didn't follow her sister to ISU! Sounds like quite a player!

    Solid class. Very excited about Samara's potential with that frame. Have her room with Fruechte and start building an All-American.

    American Volleyball Coaches Association

    Fruechte is an Under Armour Honorable Mention- All American...surprized Capezio isn't listed somewhere

    I believe Malloy and Bigbee were both 1st team on this list last year.
