Class of 2018 outside hitter Jack Stevens has committed to the Ohio State men’s volleyball program for the 2019 season. Stevens is a native of Libertyville, Illinois who will graduate in the spring/summer before heading to Columbus.
A senior at Libertyville High School, Stevens collected 286 kills in his final season of play en route to making the Boys Volleyball Lake County All-Area Team.
“Jack was outstanding and nearly unstoppable from not only the front row, but the back row and service line as well,” Libertyville coach Jenny Smith told The Daily Herald. “His off-speed shots are just as difficult to dig as most other players’ full-speed shots.”
Standing at 6’3″, Stevens also plays for Adversity Volleyball. His Hudl recruiting account can be seen here, featuring videos of his play and more information about him.
Ohio State, the two-time defending National Champions, are currently ranked seventh in the latest VolleyMob Top 20 as they are 9-2 and 2-0 in MIVA play. They have eight outside hitters on their 2018 roster with two seniors who will depart from the position following this season.
