It’s been a hot minute since we’ve had a commitment radar report for the kids out of Michigan.
The 2023s are off and well into their rookie seasons with their collegiate programs. Meanwhile, this summer saw the 2024s begin to dwindle in size of what was left of the uncommitted. For the 2025s, the floodgates have opened! Some of the top names in the junior class have been scooped up by some big time programs. I am sure there will be more major announcements from that class within the remainder of high school season.
Without further ado, let’s catch you up on all the big commitments coming out of Michigan since we last updated!
5’4 L – Hudsonville/FaR Out
One of the last remaining 2024s on the table, GONE! Davenport has been cooking up something real good over in Grand Rapids and it looks like its getting even better.is having a stellar senior season and looking primed to take on the GLIAC next fall. A part of the No. 1 team in all of Michigan with Hudsonville this fall, it looks as though Carr may help bring home a state title before she heads across town to Davenport.
This comes as Davenport’s fourth recruit out of Michigan in the 2024 class. Carr joins the likes of OH(Dakota), (Anchor Bay) and MB (Henry Ford).
6’1 MB – Hartland/L2
It was a theme in our part 10 of multiple recruits in one class, but it was also a theme of programs in the beginnings of new eras. Yes,marks the first of two on our list heading off to be a Golden Grizzly. Oakland, a promising volleyball program in just its second year under HC Krista Rice‘s leadership.
Cooney, one of the most promising middle blockers in the state this fall, may be a steal for the Grizzlies. We didn’t get to see what all Cooney was made out of this club season due to passing woes keeping her contributions limited, but she’s been a bright star all fall with Hartland. A stout blocker and a dominating weapon in offense, Cooney could easily make immediate impact at Oakland.
5’11 OH – Northville/Legacy
Next up, rounding out the future duo of Golden Grizzlies is. Much like her future teammate, Reck is another player having an impeccable fall season. With almost 400 kills on the season, Reck has become the go-to arm on an impressive Northville team. The Mustangs are currently ranked No. 2 in D1 and were National Runner-Ups a season ago.
This is another incredible pick up for Rice and Co. at Oakland. Reck has the abilities to dual as both an outside attacker and a DS with her passing capabilities. But Reck has also been showing some nice muscle in her offense over the course of the last several months. Not a bad problem to have come the fall of 2025 and beyond.
to College of Charleston
5’10 S – Portage Northern/Dead Frog
We haven’t heard much from the southwest portion of the Mitten yet, until now. Acting as the first commit to come out of the 2025 class for Dead Frog is. Bates will be following a nice line of talent to come out of the Mitten state and head down to Carolina to the College of Charleston. This is a player that brings a nice body of experience that includes a recent top 5 finish at AAU Nationals this summer. This fall, Bates has been setting the pace for Portage Northern, a highly respected crew expected to make a deep post-season run.
to Lincoln Memorial
5’9 L – Detroit Country Day/Legacy
Another 2024, off the board! It’s getting slim pickings with this class.is another highly rated libero out of this class going NCAA Division II bound. Lockhart has been the heart and soul to a really strong Detroit Country Day program for the last several years in the jersey. She’s a strong defender and solid passer. She made some significant moves in her game over the course of this last club season. Lockhart locked down the jersey very quickly on a team full of stronger defenders and led the group to a GJNC Bid.
