It is now my great pleasure to introduce you to our update to the newly updated 2021 Prep Dig State Rankings List.  We are proud to say that we have 128 of the best players in the 2021 graduating class listed and ranked.  It is absolutely our pleasure to bring this to you in our wonderful and large state. 


The 2021 Class is one that we are really proud of as we have watched them complete their senior seasons and are now ending their 18’s year in club as they fine tune their skills to play at the next level in college.  In the coming days and weeks we are going to introduce you to new athletes and also re-introduce you to some who have made some moves on the list.  We are super excited to bring this to you and we look forward to publishing more articles on these wonderful athletes.   


We love what we do and are always looking to learn more about the athletes we currently have on our list and also ones that aren’t on it yet.  The best way for me to learn is for you to talk to me about them.  I love interacting with our readers.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with information. I have tons of players who message me and keep me updated with new information on their seasons and training. We hope you are enjoying our website. Thank you for reading!

I often get asked what goes into the ranking process. Well here is how I am going about it.  I stay connected to the volleyball scene as much as I can.  We speak to hundreds of club and high school coaches, club directors, and college coaches across the entire state to gather as much information as possible on each athlete.  We study tournaments entered and tournament finishes.  We study high schools, preseason lists, and awards given to athletes from UIL, TAPPS, and SPC.  Usually we would watch as much in-person practices and tournaments as we can.  We have been watching a lot of awesome club volleyball tournaments in person and also I have been watching hours of game footage and highlight reels as possible.  The more you film have online, the better the research and analyzing of skills I can do to make the ranking as accurate as I can.  You are more than welcome to tag us on social media or send us emails with updates to your film.  It is also a great idea to keep updating it so that you can keep getting more exposure to college coaches.  They are watching too.


The other question I get often from parents and players is “Is it 100 accurate?”.  The short answer is no.  However, we are putting a lot of hours and hard work into trying to get it as accurate as we can.  With over 20 years of analyzing players and college recruiting experience and understanding that we must take multiple things into consideration, has allowed me to be content with how we are going about it.  While we know that it is not an exact science, we are very confident in the hard work that is going into analyzing each player and the overall ranking process. 


We hope you are as excited as we are about our third update since our launch last year. We super excited to introduce new players in the 2021 class and also the movement that we have had throughout the class.  We will be rolling out our Prep Dig State Ranking Updates each week with a different class and we are starting this week with the 2021 class updates.  Next week we will update the 2022 class and then the following week we will roll out the 2023 class.  We are working hard on gathering more information on the 2024 class and will be unveiling it a week after the 2023 class is published.
