Middle Blocker Allison Holland Commits To Penn State Women’s Volleyball

Middle blocker Allison Holland committed to Penn State women’s volleyball Saturday to round out the Nittany Lions’ 2020 recruiting class.

The 6′ 4″ prospect will enroll in classes right away and be immediately eligible for the 2020 season. Previously, she played club ball with Elite Volleyball Training Center in Plain City, Ohio.

Holland had originally committed to Tennessee back in 2017 but later reversed course and opened up her options again. She joins a number of Ohio natives at Penn State, including Jonni Parker and fellow freshman Maddy Billinovic.

Currently, Holland is the eighth newcomer to join Penn State this season. She’ll arrive in Happy Valley alongside recruits such as Annie Cate Fitzpatrick and Macy Van Den Elzen as well as transfers such as Hannah Flowers and Keatan Broughton. Prior to Holland’s commitment, PrepVolleyball.com ranked Penn State’s incoming class No. 18 in the country.

Holland will join a number of talented middle blockers at Penn State, including Kaitlyn Hord and Serena Gray. While those two will likely lock down the majority of playing time, it’s likely others, including Holland, will get a shot as coach Russ Rose weaves players in and out.

Penn State hasn’t yet released its 2020 schedule. However, the Big Ten has already announced all fall sports, including women’s volleyball, will play conference-only schedules this season.
