IU volleyball commit Tommi Stockham was named the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Nevada Prep Girls Athlete of the Year last week.
As the No. 32 recruit in the 2020 class, according to PrepVolleyball.com, Stockham became Nevada’s class 4A all-time leader in kills this past season with 1,625 over four years at Bishop Gorman High School. She also tallied 829 digs, 218 blocks and 194 aces throughout her prep career, helping to lead the Gaels to three 4A state titles.
Stockham, IU’s second-highest ranked recruit in program history, earned her second-straight Nevada Gatorade Player of the Year selection in January following a dominant senior season that included a career-high 622 kills and 402 digs.
The Hoosiers, who finished last season with a 3-17 conference record and a 14-19 overall record, enter the upcoming season with the No. 15 recruiting class in the nation. It’s the highest-rated recruiting class in program history.
Stockham headlines IU’s eight-player recruiting class alongside Under Armour All-American’s Leyla Blackwell and Savannah Kjolhede.
