Another future recruit made her intentions known recently as class of 2020 Sydney Reed has committed to the University of North Carolina women’s volleyball program. A 5’7″ outside hitter, defensive specialist and libero in her prep career, Reed will join the Tar Heels for the fall of 2020.
Reed is a sophomore at Flint Hill High School in Oakton, Virginia, where she helped her team to a 37-0 season and a state championship. In fact, it’s one of the top programs in the country, ranking 55th in the MaxPreps National Rankings.
Individually in her second season of varsity, Reed logged 373 digs (3.7 per set), 303 kills (3.0 per set) on a .224 hitting percentage and 86 aces (0.9 per set) according to her MaxPreps profile.
On the club side of things, Reed plays with the Metro American Volleyball Club – the same club that has produced countless other Division I and collegiate products, such as former Florida star Rhamat Alhassan. Specifically, Reed plays with the Metro VBC 17 Travel Team. Her player profile with listings of her countless awards can be seen here.
North Carolina finished 14-14 in 2017 and 11-9 in the ACC a year after they made the Sweet 16. At Reed’s current height – which could change if she grows – it would remain likely she is a DS/L. That would put her in a position group with one player on their current roster who is on pace to return plus any other newcomers between now and the fall of 2020.
