Highlighted by two-sport player Maggie Mendelson, here’s a closer look at star power in the Huskers | freshman division Sports

When volleyball-basketball combo player Maggie Mendelson advanced her high school diploma, the Nebraska volleyball team ended up with three top-20 recruits in its incoming freshman class.

Last winter, Mendelson transitioned to the 2022 recruit class and plans to play both volleyball and basketball for the Huskers. In both sports, she also played with the US youth national team.

Mendelson is considered the nation’s #4 volleyball recruit by Prepvolleyball.com. The site recently updated their recruit rankings, placing Mendelson in the 2022 class.

Ranking is based on a player’s ability and dominance in high school and club volleyball.

Husker freshman middle blocker Bekka Allick of Waverly is at number 6. And NU outside hitter Hayden Kubik is 18. Both Allick and Kubik graduated early from high school and trained with the Huskers in the spring.

Defense specialist Maisie Boesiger from Norris will also be there.

Nebraska should have a great recruit class in 2023 as well. Three of the top four recruits in the rankings have already signed for Nebraska — Harper Murray (No. 1 recruit, Michigan underdog), Caroline Jurevicius (No. 3, Ohio right side hitter) and Bergen Reilly (No. 5, setter from South Dakota).

Later this month, the Huskers will be able to accelerate their recruitment for the Class of 2024.

Texas and California are the states that produced the most top-20 recruits in the 2022 class, with three recruits each. Florida and Illinois each had two.
