CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia volleyball head coach Shannon Wells announced the signing of four student-athletes in the class of 2024 on Wednesday (Nov. 8).
“This is a huge class for us, not only because of their physical size, but because of the impact they will have in our future,” Wells said. “We challenged each of these athletes early in the recruiting process to come and build a championship program at UVA and they are all in to make that happen. This is not only a class of incredible talent, but also incredible people. Each of them has the chance to see the court very early in their career. We can’t wait to have them on Grounds!”
