Top 30 Recruiting Classes: If I Were Ranking The 2016 Classes

Here’s one pseudo-expert’s take on what the Top 30 class rankings should look like


[Editor’s note: founder John Tawa is not a prospect evaluation expert like the college coaches on his panel. So when it comes time to determine which schools have the best recruiting haul, despite seeing all of the players at least as much as the coaches themselves, he facilitates the preparation of the list but does not have a vote or act as a decision maker. But what if he alone framed the list? The results would look a little different than the Top 30 that rolled out this week…]

    John – 10 days ago you wrote “Stanford has an immediate need at libero and scored the highest-ranked prospect in Hentz, who is No. 22 in the Senior Aces. Hentz is a gritty defender and capable passer whose passion touches everyone around her. She will make the team better just by being on the court.”

    But in this article you write “I am concerned about ball control. Do they have it in this class? Hentz is an outside making the transition to libero and is highly regarded and rightfully so. But is she a great passer? Can she become one?”

    So you are asking if the sole Libero from Team West, who was selected MVP of the Under-Armour All-American game, is a great passer?

    Don’t let her greatness as an OH and 6 rotation player overshadow and trick you you into thinking the passing isn’t there. It’s not a transition to Libero, it’s more like picking up where she left off, only this time in a different colored jersey. I think her experience at all 6 has made her a better Libero, and she will make the hitters in front of her better because of it.
