FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The Colorado State volleyball program added a pair of recruits, including a top in-state talent, on Wednesday, the first day of the National Letter of Intent early signing period. Head Coach Tom Hilbert made the announcement.
Snider joins the Rams after having a tremendous prep career at Pomona High School in Arvada, Colo. In addition to being voted team captain by her peers, Snider was recognized as the best offensive player and received first-team all-conference honors her senior year. Also during Snider's senior year she was on the AVCA Under Armour Player Watch List and nominated for the Colorado all-state team.
Hilbert on Snider: "Kesley is incredibly athletic. She is fast and jumps very high. She is someone who fits the mold for what we are looking for at the middle blocker position at Colorado State. Kelsey is one of the better athletes in the state of Colorado, especially among volleyball players, and will develop into a very good player for us."
Reynolds, a four year letterwinner, joins the Rams from Dalhart High School in Dalhart, Texas. As a junior, Reynolds was named to the all-district team and received first-team all-state honors. Additionally Reynolds was named to the All-American watch list her senior season and led the team in kills with 430.
Hilbert on Reynolds: "Marlee was an unknown until last February, but she has caught a lot of people's attention over the last few months. She is super-athletic with great strength, and has incredible jumping ability. She will be a development player but will become a premier outside hitter for CSU in the years to come."
"This is a very athletic class. Because we will have so many key players returning next season, they will not have to play right away, but I expect them to come in and compete for playing time, and to be very good players for the future of this program. This class ranks, physically, among the best we've ever had."
