Default VB class ranked #26 by PrepVolleyball .

This is definitely a step in the right direction . It will be fun watching the two Mikaylas (Shields & Robinson) play .

26. SOUTH CAROLINA: Brooke Gostomski, 6-0 OH, Muskego (Muskego, Wisconsin); Savannah Marshall, 5-1 libero, Kellam (Virginia Beach, Virginia); Ellie Popelka, 6-2 MB/RS, Jamestown (Williamsburg, Virginia); Mikayla Robinson, 6-2 MB, Harvest Christian Academy (Elgin, Illinois); Jess Vastine, 6-1 MB/OH, Millenium (Goodyear, Arizona)

COMMENT: South Carolina was 18-12 overall a year ago, but that record is deceiving. Though the Gamecocks won more matches than at any time since 2008, they only went 6-12 in the SEC. They needed more firepower to team with outstanding freshman RS Mikayla Shields. Head coach Scott Swanson believes he hit the jackpot with this class, which includes one player rated among the top 20 recruits in the country and three others in PrepVolleyball.com’s Top 250 Senior Aces. Robinson, No. 18 in the Senior Aces, is the program’s cornerstone recruit. Perhaps the best pure athlete in the country, Robinson, whose father was at football star at South Carolina, has the kind of lateral quickness and awesome vertical ability that cannot be taught. “She’s a one in a thousand type of athlete,” said Swanson. “She has so much potential, she has the potential to be an All-American, she has the potential to play on the national team, to play professionally. She’s a program-changer for sure, and we couldn’t be more excited about having her here and giving her the experience of making her own legacy as a volleyball player for us.” USC also got better on the outside with Top 250 Senior Aces Gostomski and Vastine. Both are very competitive players with big club experience. Gostomski is better all-around while the underrated Vastine is a point scorer with a heavy arm. Popelka, at 6-2, gives Swanson more options at the net. She is versatile and scores with great efficiency. Marshall is tiny but she has a sound passing platform and is quick and aggressive on defense. She could see immediate playing time on a defense that graduated its libero and will be untested going into the fall .
