The Maryland volleyball team bolstered its 2018 recruiting class Monday with the commitment of outside hitter Emma Schriner.
Schriner, a native of Williamsburg, Virginia, was the 60th-ranked player in her class by PrepVolleyball.com and a first-team Under Armour All-American. Schriner spent the spring semester at the University of Tennessee, but will still be classified as a freshman.
Schriner bolsters a Terps roster depleted by transfers and graduations. The team now has four newcomers to replace its seven departures.
The personnel turnover is not limited to the roster, as former head coach Steve Aird left for Indiana shortly after the season, sparking some of the transfers. Adam Hughes will be in his first year as a head coach at Maryland after being an assistant under Aird. Assistant coach AJ Bonetti comes to College Park after spending the past two seasons at Tennessee.
Schriner would be the third first-team All-American to play for the Terps. She adds depth to one of Maryland’s deepest position, as three outside hitters return from last years squad; senior Liz Twilley and sophomores Aylin Saran and Erika Pritchard.
