ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan volleyball team's six-member incoming freshman class is ranked as the No. 12 class in the country by PrepVolleyball.com in its annual recruiting rankings. The Wolverines also have the third-highest ranked class in the Big Ten.
Michigan's six-member class includes outside hitters Ally Davis (Hinsdale, Ill./Hinsdale Central) and Kelly Murphy (Marietta, Ga./Walton), middle blocker Krystalyn Goode (River Falls, Wis./Nicolet), setter Carly Warner (Naperville, Ill./St. Francis) and defensive specialists Tiffany Morales (Redondo Beach, Calif./Redondo Union) and Lindsey Lerg (Farmington Hills, Mich./Mercy).
"I always think the most important thing when looking at a recruiting class is if it fits the needs of your team," head coach Mark Rosen said. "This group definitely fits our needs exactly and gives us balance across the board. I think we have a few six-rotation kids in this class, which has really become our identity the past few years. We lost some key players to graduation this past year, but I think this class has the ability to step up and help us compete."
The class joins seven returning letterwinners from a 2011 team that went 22-13 and made the program's fourth Sweet 16 appearance in the past five years.
U-M kicks off the 2012 season against Nicholls State on Aug. 24 in Columbia, Mo.
