According to the leading volleyball recruiting site, there are eight freshmen that have already committed to play volleyball in college. Three are committed to Nebraska - Kennedi Orr, left, Lindsay Krause, center, and Alexis Rodriguez, right.

It was June 18, 2009, when the headline in the Lincoln Journal-Star read, “Twins are Youngest Players to Commit to NU.” And with that, the public was made completely aware of the fact that Amber and Kadie Rolfzen had committed to be Huskers about two months before starting their freshman year at Papillion-LaVista South.

To put that into perspective, the earliest anyone had committed to the Huskers prior to that was when Jordan Larson committed shortly after the end of her sophomore year at Logan View. The Rolfzen twins topped that by two years.

Nationally, a lot of people like to point to that as the opening of Pandora’s Box when it comes to recruiting players at such an early age. Ever since, Nebraska has been pointed to as the instigators in the race to recruit kids as early as possible.

Is that fair? Probably not, but it all depends on how you look at it.
