As much recruiting attention as Lincoln East 6’2 attacker Atley Carey is getting despite having surgery on both of her feet in the past year, it’s hard to imagine what it might turn into now if she stays at full strength for an extended period of time.
Carey, who plays on the Nebraska Elite 16 Vici club team, was able to pull every match this past weekend in Denver at the Colorado Crossroads USAV Qualifier in her first competitive tournament since foot surgery earlier this year. As a sophomore at Lincoln East last fall Carey finished with 172 kills and 58 blocks.
South Dakota, which has built a pretty steady pipeline in Nebraska in recent years, and Colorado are the two colleges where Carey said she has been on visits. She is also drawing interest from TCU, Xavier, Wake Forest, Wichita State, West Virginia and Texas-Arlington.
Carey said she isn’t in any hurry to make a commitment and wants to take her time and make sure she finds the right fit.
“I don’t have a timeline for getting committed,” she said. “It’ll happen when it happens and when it feels like it’s the right fit for me. It doesn’t have to be the biggest and the best school that makes an offer. I just want to be happy playing and where i’m going to school. i am looking for a school that has nice facilities, good team chemistry, and has a lot of support for their student athletes.”
