Labor Day has come and gone, which can mean only one thing in the high school volleyball world - the national rankings of the top senior players from across the country is coming out.

Prep Volleyball, which has been ranking the top 100 senior recruits in the nation since 2004, will slowly release the list over the next couple weeks. It’s always interesting to see how much respect athletes from Nebraska get in the national rankings. Even though those of us in the state know how great the talent is here, it doesn’t always translate at the national level.

For my money, three players from Nebraska should be in the national 100 - Sarah Wing of Omaha Marian, Taliyah Flores of Papillion-LaVIsta South and Jaela Zimmerman of Malcolm. Wing should fall somewhere between 75-100, while Flores should likely be in the 60-90 range. Zimmerman, in my opinion, is a top 30 talent - maybe even top 25.

But, again, Nebraskans tend to get snubbed on the national recruiting rankings. Brittany Witt wasn’t a top 100, nor was Brooke Heyne, Allison Schomers, Sydney O’Shaughnessy, Olivia Nicholson……..well, you get my point.

Over the years there have only been three players from Nebraska
