LOGAN, Utah - Utah State's head volleyball coach Grayson DuBose had one of the best recruiting classes in the nation and the second-best recruiting class in the Western Athletic Conference in 2007 according to PrepVolleyball.com.
PrepVolleyball.com ranked Utah State's 2007 recruiting class as one of the top 95 in the nation and the second-best in the WAC, behind only Hawai'i who had the 19th-best recruiting class.
The class, which is voted on by select collegiate coaches from across the country, consists only of high school players and does not include junior college and four-year transfers.

Utah State's four other newcomers include Kris Hymas (South Jordan, Utah/Salt Lake CC); Melissa Osterloh (Sandy, Utah/Portland State); Jessalyn Payne (Greeley, Colo./Arkansas State); and Jessica Wilkinson (Penrose, Utah/Salt Lake CC).
