VB Signs Four for 2017
Yep, it's that time of year in a number of sports - while football gets all the fun on its own day, today kicks off the signing period for sports like golf, baseball, basketball, and yes, volleyball too. With just one senior on the 2016 squad, Faye Adelaja, Purdue had a chance to add some depth to a somewhat-depleted roster, and they did just that, landing four players today. Recruiting isn't over yet (early signing ends 11/16), and Dave Shondell did mention the likelihood of a transfer joining the freshmen, but for now, we can talk about these women.
Following high school and club volleyball is beyond my ability at this time, so how about if I just direct you to a man who knows a lot more about it than I do? The official release is here for your reading pleasure, but I've embedded Shondell's comments below on each player.
5'11" S/OH Hayley Bush (Union, KY Ryle)
6'1" OH Caitlyn Newton (Terre Haute South Vigo)
5'10" L/OH Jena Otec (Crystal City, MO St. Pius X)
