One of the nation’s top volleyball recruits hails from Raines High School in Katy, Texas. Ever heard of it? Not many have.

Cami May is one in a national trend of high-Major DI volleyball recruits who are bypassing the high school game. They are exclusively playing club ball en route to the college game.

The 6-foot-3 middle played three seasons for Cinco Ranch High School, before enrolling at Raines to graduate early and shove off to national-power Penn State after Christmas.
