Putting out the player rankings is always a little bit tricky, because it's really a ranking based on a perceived college-level ability of high school players.

Therefore, maybe some players that are outstanding high school players are ranked a little lower than, say, a really good high school player that still has a lot of upside left untapped. As a result, you never really know how accurate the rankings are for at least three or four years after the class graduates from high school.

With that in mind, let's take a look at how the top 20 players in the Class of 2019 rankings are doing in their first season in college.

#1 - Kyla Swanson, MH, Wahoo - at Illinois

After a standout high school career, Swanson stepped into an ultra-competitive situation at Illinois as one of three incoming freshmen middles for the #18-ranked Illini. Swanson has played in four of the 11 Illinois matches so far this season, earning a pair of starts. She had season-highs in kills (3), digs (6) and blocks (5) in season-opening match against Tennessee.

#2 - Kelsie Cada - OH, Bishop Neumann - at Wayne State
