Getzin on his 2013 class:
"This is a very exciting class for us. We lose seven seniors from this year's team, so this class coming in has a lot of roles that we need filled. This is a class that can step in and compete as freshmen right from the get-go. They're probably one of the most experienced groups that we've brought in, and probably one of the most decorated as far as winning awards for their achievements already."
|Kristen Brashear||Libero||5'9||Louisville, Ky.|
|Melanie Crow||Right Side||6'1||Wildwood, Mo.|
|Aubrey Edie||Setter||6'0||Fayetteville, Ark.|
|Margaret Eggert||Outside Hitter||6'1||Woodbury, Minn.|
|Louisville, Ky.||5'9||Libero||Sacred Heart Academy|
"Kristen comes to us from Louisville, Ky. She'll be coming in as a defensive specialist/libero. We're very excited about her athleticism and the way she competes. She's a very competitive kid and we're looking forward to working with that type of attitude that she brings to the court. I've already watched her play middle blocker in club, and while she's not a middle blocker, you couldn't tell that by the way she went about her business. She'll throw everything out on the floor each and every point. We're looking forward to that."
Quote about Kristen Brashear from her club coach - Dan Palmer, Adidas Union 17
"Kristen is an extremely gifted athlete. This, combined with her competitiveness, puts her in a very elite and select group of defensive players. I expect she will make great contributions to the Ole Miss community."
|Wildwood, Mo.||6'1||Right Side||Lafayette (Wildwood, Mo.) High School|
Quote about Melanie Crow from Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin
"Melanie is from St. Louis, Mo. She won a second state championship – they didn't lose a set all season and Melanie was a big part of the success that team had. Melanie is about a 6-1 right side attacker. She's a crafty player who can hit any shot in the book and will get a lot of kills for us. We're looking for her to come in and compete for playing time right away. We think she is a player that can help us immediately."
Quote about Melanie Crow from her high school coach - Zach Young, Lafayette High School
"Mel is one of the best blockers and hardest hitters to come through our high school program. She was unstoppable at the state tournament and is a huge reason we were able to repeat as state champions this year. Melanie is a great leaper, and can take the second ball without hesitation. She could be a setter on a lot of teams. We look for Melanie to do great things at Ole Miss."
|Fayetteville, Ark.||6'0||Setter||Fayetteville High School|
"Aubrey just got named second team All-American. She's our first All-American recruit. Also, this summer she played on the USA Junior National A2 team, which is quite an honor to get picked to that. While she was there, she proved to be one of the best setters in the country. We're really excited about what she brings to the table. She just won a state championship and was named MVP of the tournament. And the great thing about Aubrey is she's so humble about all of those awards and keeps working hard. She's about 6-1, long length. Each time I see her she seems a little bit taller. She's going to bring a dimension, size wise, that we haven't had here in quite some time."
Quote about Aubrey Edie from her club coach - Jenny Lingenfelter, Ozark Juniors
"Aubrey is one of the best athletes I have had the privilege of coaching. She is definitely one of the best setters coming out of our program, not only because of her skills, but also because of her work ethic, leadership skills, focus and self-motivation. Her athleticism, knowledge, and passion for the game will definitely help the Rebels achieve their goals and be one of the best teams in the SEC. I am very excited she chose Ole Miss, and I believe she will be a great asset to their program. I look forward to seeing her grow at Ole Miss."
|Woodbury, Minn.||6'1||Outside Hitter||East Ridge High School|
"Margaret comes from Minneapolis, Minn. She's our first recruit out of that area. She's a big, strong girl who will compete for playing outside hitter right away. She hits a heavy ball, and we were really impressed with her when we got to work with her last summer at camp. She's really progressed nicely through her high school season, and I think coming in she'll be one of the players who's competing for playing time right away."
Quote about Margaret Eggert from her club coach - R.T. Luczak, Kokoro Volleyball
"Margaret's commitment and dedication to obtaining the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve at an elite level are the catalysts for her improvement. Her ability to focus, implement change and push herself ensures her achievement. Margaret is a gifted competitor. She strives every day to achieve excellence. These character traits make Margaret an exemplary role model for the younger players in our program at Kokoro Volleyball. Margaret is an impact player, and I am excited to see the contributions she will make at Ole Miss, and the SEC starting in the 2013 season."
