The Under Amour Next Camp Series brings some of the best of the best across the country to the center stage. From this camp, with ages ranging from juniors to freshman, the gym is red hot with top notch volleyball.
From these camps, two athletes are nominated at every camp to take part in the annual Under Amour All-American Games in Orlando in December. Along with these golden ticket invites, Under Armour crowns a dream team of MVPs that put on a show at the camp.
Being at the Orlando camp, I am here to give you an inside look at the top names that came out of AAU National’s stop on the UA Next tour.
Hannah Benjamin – 6’2 OH – A5
Kentucky bound next winter, Benjamin has been crushing the game with A5 for the last few seasons. This player brings the heat and can bring some nice ball control. Benjamin received her golden ticket back to Orlando this coming Winter for the prestigious Under Armour games.
– 6’1 S – Top Select
From one Kentucky bound kid to the next, this UA All-American invite will be playing for cross state rival Louisville. Cabello doubles so effectively as both a setter and an attacker in the regular season. Cabello’s setting prowess will be the name of her game in December.
UA NEXT MVPs
– 6’1 S – Tribe
One of the hottest names in the 2025 class, Glass is a walking highlight reel. A high-jumping lefty setter that can crush the ball on two? It’s an instant classic. An instant MVP.
Carley O’Brien – 5’11 OH – Upward Stars
This is a new player on my radar and a new player that I will surely be keeping tabs on going forward. O’Brien plays for Upward Stars out of South Carolina and is heading out to Liberty in the fall of 2024. O’Brien plays the game with a lot of pop and intensity.
Taylor Parks – 6’1 S – OTVA
If this wasn’t an indicator to what her next few days would like, I don’t know what was. Fresh off of her MVP honors at UA Next Camp, Parks went on to win a National Championship in the 17 Open with OTVA.
Victoria Harris – 5’5 L – SC Midlands
Another highlight from South Carolina, Harris is one feisty defender. With some of the best hitters in the country, the harder the ball, the better Harris was. This ‘bro is taking her talents with Gamecock volleyball.
– 6’0 OPP – Team KIWI
In a gym full of high fliers, you’d imagine it’d be pretty hard to stand out. With Higgins’ vert, she quite literally hops off the pages. Up high and a bombing lefty swing, Higgins is heading to Florida State in the fall of 2024.
