    Jerritt Elliott said in his press conference "hopefully " they can close out the 2020 class later meaning Parra which worries me a little but I believe she will come to Texas. So whoever goes to those point Texas meetings with coach Elliott and your seeing this can you please ask him about Parra and let the rest of us know.

    Who knows what is out there at end of semester. Parra may be iffy. Sun transfered at end of semester so there may be somebody show up that no one knows about now. Transfer to me means unhappy. Unless it is a graduate transfer. Regardless, he is still working so I hope it is a difference maker. Losing White, need to try and replace her with a potential difference maker to keep the train rolling.

    Found this match with redondo union vs mater dei in playoffs. Just thought I'd share it so everyone can see nalani losia in real action and how she plays instead of just highlights

    I hear Capri Davis May be coming to Texas from Nebraska. If that’s the case do you think he’ll redshirt Melanie Parra who already moved to Austin or Madison? Madison is recovering from a torn ACL.

    Looked up Davis last game and she was not on box score for regional loss on Saturday. Interesting that she was a teammate of Madison at Mansfield Lake Ridge. She played more as a freshman at Nebraska as not much as a sophomore. I imagine a redshirt for Madison and playing time next year will be between Davis and Parra. Just guessing.

    It appears Capri Davis took a medical leave from the team on October 23 2019, her Sophomore year. Which is somewhere about mid season for Volleyball? Don't think she was starting at the time?

    I think he will redshirt williams but I still say parra gets the spot she is just on a different level than any freshman in the country. I guess it depends on how much capri davis develops but im glad she came because Texas was thin without her for 2020

    Looks like I was right. I’m stoked for the 2020 season.

    Doubt that. I think, if anything, it means we may lose Shook or something of that nature. But we may have had the space anyway.

    Lol no even with parra, Texas was going to be very thin with pin hitters. Madison Williams might redshirt since she is coming off an ACL injury so capri davis adds to the depth that we desperately needed. So as of now pin hitters would be Logan eggleston, Skylar fields, melanie parra, capri davis and madison Williams(if she doesn't redshirt) I don't know nor do I want to speculate but I don't think capri davis will be given one of the scholarships but who knows but parra is not out of it because she still is in round rock attending high school

    Still no word on Melanie Parra signing her LOI.

    In other news, Cal-Santa Barbara libero, sophomore Zoe Fleck, is in the transfer portal. She visited Texas officially the last couple of days; saw her attending the women's hoops game against Tech with Logan Eggleston, Capri Davis, Coach Tonya Johnson, Coach Elliott and his wife.

    She visited Nebraska officially earlier in the week, as well as visiting UCLA unofficially a couple of days ago.

    Since she plans to enroll in classes next week, a decision should come any day now, although she might make a visit to Wisconsin this weekend.

    Well parra returned from Dominican republic back to Austin after mexico failed to qualify for the Olympics so I assume she is still committed. She is now playing AAU for roots volleyball an Austin based team so I think she will join in the fall. As for fleck this is who I really hope makes her way to Austin. She will drastically increase our defense and to have losia and Peterson as DS will help Texas alot. If everything works out between parra and fleck then Texas is a sight to see in the fall

    So from the REAL volleyball experts...…...I thought Peterson had a really good year. Right up till she got replaced during the Tournament. Did she really have that bad a run ..…..or was it just an off game or two? Obviously, the Horns struggled in last two games. So is the recruiting of Fleck an indication of the staff thinking Libero is now the weak link on the team? Or just Fleck being that good that it would be competition for Peterson. I cant believe Fleck would agree to go to a Nebraska or Texas or other without some commitment of playing time. Setter was the biggest concern for the last 3 years...…...but has libero replaced that positional concern?

    I do believe libero is the problem. Peterson's biggest problem is her range. She cannot cover a lot of court as she is not quick enough to. If the ball is in her range then she is a great player but if its a little bit out her zone then it's a kill most of the time. Fleck has it all as alot of people have compared her to morgan hentz in terms of her speed and being able to cover a lot of court. I dont think setting was a problem last season it was just opponents being able to hit over jhenna since she is very small. In terms of her setting she is a great ball distributor and stats show that because Texas led the ncaa in hitting percentage throughout the enitre season. It will be interesting to see how everything plays out if fleck does decide to transfer. I believe she will take over the libero spot and losia will be DS. Cabello just might take over as well if her location is up to Texas standards.

    Makes sense. Sure hope Fleck doesn’t go to Nebraska. Distribution to hitters is the big thing for a setter. Giving up some height and over the top kills is maddening. Hard to have it all I guess.

    I don't think she will pick Nebraska considering she has the best chance to start at Texas. Also she is very much a beach girl so I don't think she will enjoy her time there since it's always so cold but who knows what her criteria is? Hopefully Texas has everything she is looking for

    Still hasn’t been confirmed anywhere by the University I thought. Why wouldn’t she have signed a LOI yet?
