UT recruits named to 2019 Senior Aces list

PrepVolleyball has announced their Senior Aces, a list of the top 250 volleyball recruits in the Class of 2019 and several future Lady Vols have been honored. The list is comprised of a ranked top 100, 25 people who just missed that cut, and then the next 125 unsorted.

Kailey Keeble, a 5’8″ setter from Heritage High School in Maryville TN, is ranked at #64. PrepVolleyball says of her: “A great floor leader… a fast and agile player with great court awareness and a plethora of outstanding skills… one of the best attackers in East Tennessee… sure to be a spark and fan favorite at Tennessee from her first moment at Rocky Top.”

Making the just-missed-the-top-100 list are Morgahn Fingall, a 6’0″ right side hitter from Chantilly VA, and Kora “Travel” Morris, a 6’3″ middle from Spring TX.

And lastly, Emily Merrick, a 6’4″ middle from Flower Mound TX, made the cut for the top 250.

(Also, congrats to two local high schoolers going elsewhere who made the list: #43 Kayleigh Hames from Webb who will play for Pepperdine, and Caroline Bower from Farragut who’s heading to College of Charleston.)

Tennessee currently has six players who were named Senior Aces during their final year of high school: Sedona Hansen, Danielle Mahaffey, Lily Felts, Erica Treiber, Callie Williams, and Raquel Perinar.
