While it may have been expected for weeks, it finally happened this weekend.
Knoxville Catholic volleyball standout Cassie Kuerschen announced her verbal commitment Saturday to the University of Tennessee on Twitter.
Just a sophomore, Kuerschen helped lead Catholic to a runner-up finish this past week in the Class AA State Tournament. She finished with 26 digs in the championship match.
Kuerschen was also the District 3-AA Defensive Player/Libero of the Year this season. Virginia was also after her talents.
“She’s definitely one of the top libero prospects in the country for her age group, so honestly the sky’s the limit,” Catholic coach Brent Carter told 5Star Preps in late August. “This coming year, that’s when scouts are just all over the place. She’s going to have more schools to look at than she can imagine.”
I’M ALL IN… Super excited to be committed to play volleyball at the University of Tennessee. Huge thanks to everyone who made this possible- love you all. Can’t wait to give back to this town all that it’s given to me. GO VOLS!! #VFL🍊 pic.twitter.com/1HHlPFzk8m
