Unsigned Showcase

Flagging Down Showcase Talent in Washington, D.C.

Before the gym in D.C. turns into the battleground for the Capitol Hill Classic on Saturday, PrepVolleyball.com hosted an unsigned showcase. With over 600 athletes spread among the three sessions, there was plenty of action to see and quite a buzz among college coaches at the event as to where to look next.

While there was an abundance of talent to see, we noted several players (97!) who stood out in particular and also added comments by us and college coaches available… you could say we “flagged” down some terrific athletes in the United States capital.

Thank you and good luck to all those who participated!
