The 2021 recruiting class for Nebraska didn’t need much more to add to its prowess, but did anyway as they have landed the commitment of outside hitter Ally Batenhorst.
Also committed to the Huskers for 2021 and registered in the VolleyMob Recruiting Database are setter Kennedi Orr, middle blocker Rylee Gray, outside hitter Lindsay Krause and defensive specialist/libero Alexis Rodriguez.
Adding Batenhorst to the group had Nebraska assistant coach Kayla Banwarth ecstatic about the future of the Huskers as well:
THE DREAM TEAM IS COMPLETE! ❤️🌽🏐 #GBR

A 6’4″ outside hitter, Batenhorst is a sophomore at Seven Lakes High School in Katy, Texas. So far in her high school career as a second year varsity player, according to her MaxPreps profile, she has recorded 735 kills (4.5 per set) on a .262 hitting percentage, 406 digs (2.5 per set), 108 blocks (0.7 per set) and 67 aces (0.4 per set). She also has a .880 reception percentage.
On the club circuit, she plays for Houston Juniors and the HJV 17 Elite team. She was actually born in Omaha too and grew up a Nebraska football fan.
