SPVB 18 Elite's Freshman OH Taylor Landfair

That year, as a high school freshman, the 6-5 Landfair got bumped up to Sports Performance’s top 18s team, and her star has only continued to rise. 

In 2017, she traveled with the youth national team to the FIVB U18 World Championship in Argentina (and was the youngest player on the team), then made her verbal commitment to Minnesota following the 2017 high school season. Then after a stellar junior season in 2018 in which she topped 505 kills, Landfair earned the 2018-19 Gatorade state player of the year honor for Illinois and led Sports Performance to a junior national championship, earning MVP honors along the way. 

This fall, Landfair had 479 kills with .336 hitting (5.8 kills per set), 326 digs, and 39 aces.

PrepVolleyball has dubbed Landfair the No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2020 and she was an obvious choice for the First Team Under Armour All-America list.

“Taylor Landfair is a special talent,” Minnesota head coach Hugh McCutcheon said. “She's got length, she's physical and she can play the whole game. It's a rare combination of skills, but it's these factors combined with her work ethic and her constant drive to improve that really set her apart.”

Landfair is one of three Minnesota commits to make First Team All-American, joining setter Melani Shaffmaster and outside hitter Jenna Wenaas.
