Some random, off-topic info: Stanford hired Alisha Glass as their new assistant coach.
I guess she got tired of Karch pretty quickly.
Not so sure about that. She played for Karch on the National Team for quite awhile, and even knowing him as a player, she took a job as one of his assistants. It is possible however that the National Team gig did not offer the same opportunities for advancement, or pay, or whatever, as she may get moving into college coaching.
Astonishingly, the Slacker Staff showed up today at DigNittany World Headquarters and updated all of the Class of 2019 Signees and Verbals. Here's the link to the listing of those players: www.dignittanyvolleyball.com/2019-recruiting/
The updates include updated stats, a new video here and there, and the occasional new article. Not earthshaking, but pretty good for those habitual slackers.
If the player's status is verbal, does that mean they will be a walk-on?
For the 2019s, that is my assumption, but I don't know for certain. For subsequent classes, no one has signed yet, so they are all verbals.
Penn State doesn't announce who is or is not on scholarship, and my understanding is that it can change from year-to-year for some players -- i.e. a player may have agreed to two scholarship years out of four (which is different than partial scholarships -- there are no partial scholarships in D1 women's volleyball).
It's complicated, which is why I don't track scholarships, just players. And at the end of the day, that's all that matters -- they are all players on the Penn State Women's Volleyball team.
RE: Walk Ons: Not invited but team having an open solicitation and some kid wants to give it a shot. Bayleigh MIGHT have been a walk on although she may have been more than that as she was on the Club team for a year and coach or staff may have seen her and invited her to tryout
