We are very excited to announce part three of the Class of 2024 Watch List for the 2021 club season! This list is compiled of well-known players within their age group and those who may not yet have had the opportunity to shine on their high school teams since they were playing or will be playing alongside and against players above their age. How did we compile this list, you ask? We used independent research and asked coaches to nominate players from outside their own clubs that impressed them in competition. Players are listed by their primary positions, then alphabetically by first name. So if a player is listed as multiple positions, they can be found under the primary position submitted by the coach who nominated them or by our selection.
The list will be released daily by position, and today we've got Right-Side Hitters: Their job may seem simple at surface level, but they're often matched up against the top hitter from opposing teams. Right-side hitters are some of the most gritty, versatile, block-hungry players in the game. In fact, they're so versatile that most of them will likely appear under different positions scattered across this year's watch list. That might just be why the right-side category may seem so short compared to the rest.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is NOT a ranking by any means. It is simply a list of players who have the potential and skills to become elite-level athletes and that PrepVB, spectators, and the coaches who nominated them alike should keep an eye on in the years to come. So, there's no need to be up in arms if a player is left off the list. It holds absolutely no representation of their self-worth as an athlete or a person. Please ONLY reach out to us if there is a discrepancy with positions, names, club teams, or heights. You can email Jimmy Pompeo at Jpompeo@prepvolleyball.com. You can also comment with other players you believe should be included, or that we should watch.
Without further ado, we give you the Right-Side Hitters of the Class of 2024 Watch List. Thank you to all those coaches that helped us curate this year's list.
