Nebraska Volleyball welcomed three new players on Wednesday, including two Nebraska high school players. The team announced its 2020 recruiting class. The Huskers are on a run of four straight trips to the Final Four. They’ve added more talent to a star studded roster that has no seniors currently on the roster.

The highlight of the 2020 recruiting class is Kaylnn Meyer from Superior, Nebraska, who is the 21st ranked prospect in the country. The 6-3 middle blocker joins the program after being named Under Armour All-American, the first from Nebraska since 2012 when twins Amber and Kadie Rolfzen.

“Kalynn is one of the best middles in the country and we are thrilled she chose to stay in Nebraska,” John Cook in a statement. “Kalynn is dominant at the net and has a chance to contribute on the court right away.”

Setter Annika Evans joins the squad from Waverly, Nebraska. Evans older bothers played football for Nebraska. In high school she recorded over 3,000 assists as a four year starter for the Waverly High School Vikings.

The other letter of intent Nebraska received today comes from Aviston, Illinois. Abby Johnson is a middle blocker who led Breese Central High School to a 27-11 record this fall. She is a three year starter for the Cougars.

Aviston, who earned her scholarship after two strong performances at Nebraska volleyball camps, comes to Lincoln averaging 3.3 kills per set during her senior year of high school.

“Abby worked extremely hard to become a Husker. After attending two camps this summer, her talent could not be denied. We knew we had to get her to Nebraska,” Cook said. “She is without a doubt going to raise the level of competition and hard work in our gym, and her outstanding character will fit right into the Nebraska culture.”
