2025 Opposite Hitter Ryan Hunter Commits to Nebraska

July 20, 2023

John Cook and the Nebraska coaching staff might have put the finishing touches on their 2025 high school recruiting class this week as opposite hitter Ryan Hunter under announced her commitment to the Huskers on Thursday.

The 6-foot-2 left-handed pin from Charlotte, North Carolina, is the fourth member of Nebraska’s 2025 recruiting class. PrepVolleyball.com has Hunter rated 17th nationally in the 2025 class and second at her position.

As a sophomore at Mallard Creek High School in Concord, North Carolina, Hunter averaged 3.9 kills per set on .236 hitting with 72 aces and 54 blocks in 86 sets. Mallard Creek went 18-9 and made it to the second round of the Class 4A state tournament in North Carolina.

As a freshman, Hunter averaged 2.2 kills per set on .386 hitting with 67 blocks in 89 sets as Mallard Creek went 16-10 and also fell in the second round of the state tournament.

She plays her club ball for Triangle, playing at the 17U level this spring and summer. She is also a member of the USA Volleyball National Team Development Program, giving her the opportunity to train in the spring with some of the best players in the country.

Hunter was the lone uncommitted 2025 prospect to attend Nebraska’s Dream Team Camp earlier this month, where she performed well enough to turn some heads.

Hunter joins outside hitter Teraya Sigler (No. 6 at PrepVolleyball.com), setter Campbell Flynn (No. 13) and libero Keri Leimbach (No. 25) in Nebraska’s 2025 class.
