Kentucky volleyball coach Craig Skinner is going to return a lot of very talented players, including Southeastern Conference Player of the Year Emma Grome and fifth-year senior Azhani Tealer, off this year’s Sweet 16 team that lost to San Diego but he is also once again adding some incredible talent.

Three Kentucky signees — Brooke Bultema (Ohio), Brooklyn Deleye (Kansas) and Ava Sarafa (Michigan) — all were named the player of the year in their state by MaxPreps.

No other school had three signees named player of the year.

All three obviously were named to the MaxPreps All-America team — only one other school also had three future players named All-American.

Sarafa was also named Michigan Division I player of the year by Prep Dig Michigan.
