    Another great recruiting class coach! The bar has been raised and it is still climbing. I think that each freshman class will be better than the one before, and the better we play, the better the kids get!

    Re: ISU VB signs 3 top 100 players!!!

    Easily the most highly regarded class to ever come into ISU. Perspective, the elite programs in the country will often not have two Fab 50 recruits. Two top 25 is nothing short of a staggering accomplishment, especially at a school like ISU with minimal history of success. The mere fact that all 4 ladies have national credibility has me giddy.

    I'm EXTREMELY pumped to see this Allison Landwehr. 6 foot setter? Rock on! A year sitting behind Mann and extra year of learning under CJ - look for some serious national honors for her in three or four years.

    I expected CJ to do well - but this is beyond imagination.

    Wow, that program has come a long way in a short time. Hopefully we can copy the blueprint onto other sports.

    Re: ISU VB signs 3 top 100 players!!!

    Setter is the most important position in volleyball, great to see they got such a highly ranked recruit with pretty good size.

    Middle-blocker, in my opinion, is the second most important position. It's been a while since I've played or watched indoor, but 6'3" used to be a montser in women's volleyball. If coach's comments about her quickness are correct, she could control a lot of games for the Cyclones.

    She is not a Pollard hire, she may have been te only one BVDV made, altough Pollard was with her at Wisconsin, so they fit well. The hire was probably done by Calli Sanders, the SWA, who is still here, either way she is amazing!

    Re: ISU VB signs 3 top 100 players!!!

    Basically there are three levels in Big 12 WVB now:

    Top tier: NU and UT, with KSU trying to break in
    A step down: ISU, BU, OU, MU, KU, CU, aTm
    not very good: TT

    These are the kind of recruits needed to push ISU up to the upper tier in the Big 12.

    Keep 'em coming!

    Not only that but to pull the 22nd ranked player OUT of nebraska, is an accomplishment in itself!

    I don't know if I would say KSU is even close to the level of NU or UT.


    I'd probably put it like this.

    NU and UT
    KSU, ISU, Baylor, OU
    the rest
    TT
