Woodbridge, Virginia- The Bluefield College womens volleyball team has signed one of the top high school prospects in the country in Jasmine Morrow, according to prepvolleyball.com which ranked her as one of the top sophomore and juniors in the country.
Morrow signed her letter of intent to play for Coach Votaw and the Lady Rams on February 21st, 2012 at her high school.
Morrow, a 5-foot-8 outside hitter from Woodbridge, Virginia, who was originally being contacted by over 200 colleges, was chosen the MVP at Evangel Christian School in Dale City, Virginia. Jasmine, daughter of Tim and Lynn Morrow, was the ODACS state MVP from years 2008-11, and the 2008-11 MVP of her high school team. She was also the News and Messenger player of the year in 2009 and 2010.
For her career, Jasmine had 1661 kills, (which is a school record), 880 digs and 458 aces to go with 254 assists.
"This is an historic day in the life of Bluefield College Volleyball. To be able to land a recruit as talented as Jasmine is a major shot in the arm for our program. We are excited that Jasmine is joining the Lady Rams volleyball program", said Bluefield College coach Brian Votaw, who is entering his second season as the head coach at Bluefield.
"Jasmine is one of top 10 outside hitters I have personally seen coming out of high school. She has an incredible vertical and an incredible arm swing to go with it. I'm also extremely impressed by her defense and back row attacking."
"Jasmine is a gifted player and even more importantly is an incredible young christian woman who despite all her success remains quite humble. She has prepared herself well by playing at an outstanding successful high school program at Evangel Christian while being coached by her father Tim. She also played for an excellent club for 5 years with the Clash Club program. I look forward to her contribution to our team and anticipate her making a huge impact in her freshman year," expressed Coach Votaw.
"I chose Bluefield College because as soon as I visited it, I feel in love with it said Morrow of her college choice. "I loved the small campus, and the small class sizes." "I loved practicing with the team and got along well with the players on the current team. I also really liked Coach Votaw and I believe playing for the Rams will be great experience."
