As reported by boylancatholicbroadcasting on ihigh.com on November 21, 2011, Penn State has received a verbal commitment from Boylan Catholic’s 6-1 S/RS HS So. Bryanna Weiskircher (Rockford, Illinois) to play volleyball starting in the 2014 season. According to the report (Click here for full story), Bryanna also was considering the University of Florida and the University of Illinois.
Bryanna brings terrific credentials. Emily Tropp, who covers prep sports in Northern Illinois for the Rockford Register Star (rrstar.com), calls her “the best player this area has produced since Keith’s Jordan Haverly.” (Check out Tropp’s article “Remember this name: Bryanna Weiskircher.”) And a January 27, 2011 post on the Chicago Sun Times’ “From the Back Row” blog described Bryanna as “one of the top frosh in the country.” Bryanna was named to PrepVolleyball.coms’s 2010 Frosh 59 and she earned Honorable Mention All-State from the Champaign-Urbana News Gazette.
Here’s a video of Bryanna from October 22, 2011 in a match in which against Winnebago. In the video, Boylan’s Maddy Guyette makes a save from a Winnebago attack, and Bryanna (No. 1) ends the rally with a kill:
And here’s a link to a nice photo of Bryanna facing a triple block.
