Class of 2019 recruit Shane Atkins has committed to the Pepperdine University men’s volleyball program. A 6’6″ outside hitter, Atkins is set to join the Waves for the fall of 2019 with his freshman season set for the winter of 2020.
Atkins will be a senior in the fall this upcoming semester at Rocklin High School in California. The lone season that has been recorded on his MaxPreps profile was as a sophomore though when he logged 4.2 kills per set on a .320 hitting percentage, 2.0 digs per set, and 0.6 aces/blocks per set.
On the club side of things, Atkins plays with Bay to Bay Volleyball Club. Some video of his play can be seen below via YouTube:
It’s not the lone Pepperdine commit thus far for 2019 that has been registered in the VolleyMob Recruiting Database. Atkins joins Scott Solan, a 6’7″ left-handed hitting opposite from Nevada.
Pepperdine finished the 2017 season at 15-8 overall and 8-4 in the MPSF. They are also ranked #7 in the Way-Too-Early 2019 VolleyMob Men’s Top 20 Power Rankings.
