We continue our peruse through the new class of ’22 rankings by mentioning our favorite middles that are available. All of these players jump touch well past 9-6, all can play either middle position, and all will make a difference in the fall of 2022. It’s just a matter of who wants them more.

Abigail KeslerAbigailKesler5'11" | MBMuncie Burris | 2022StateIN, 5-11, Munciana 17 Aztecs

I listed Abigail first for one reason----her versatility. She’s fast enough to get past the big, lumbering blockers, long enough to defend from pin to pin, and is exemplary off of both two feet and one foot behind the setter. She has all of the shots in the book, and excels when the set is away from the middle (read: 3s and slides). The smallest middle on this list has probably the biggest upside.

Lovie WallaceLovieWallace6'0" | MBHamilton Southeastern | 2022StateIN, 6-0, Munciana 18 Samurai

Lovie is the only person on this list with a state championship medal in her trophy case. Her length and strength make her an ideal M2, as her attack off of two feet is heavy and effective. She can, however, go off of one foot just as well.
