The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) released on Monday its prestigious annual AVCA Phenom List, which features the most promising underclassmen in the entire nation. Once again, the strength of Texas volleyball was highlighted.

The Lone Star state saw 213 of its prospects make the cut, accounting for more than 10% of the 2,065 athletes selected across the United States. The list of Texans selected is so massive (everything is bigger in Texas) that we’ll split it in three articles.

We start with the class of 2023, which had the vast majority of the total, accounting for 142 selections.
