Under Armour All-American Profile: Rylee Rader

Assumption High School volleyball coach Ron Kordes calls his star middle blocker Rylee Rader a silent assassin. The 6-3 middle blocker isn’t the most vocal leader on his team, but she puts up some pretty darn impressive numbers. 

The Rylee Rader File

Position: Middle Blocker

Height: 6-3

Hometown: Louisville, Kentucky

High School: Assumption High School

Club: KIVA

By the time Assumption won its third Kentucky state championship in a row to end the 2019 season, Rader had collected 270 kills, hitting .403, 37 aces, and 38 blocks, despite missing almost a month of the season due to a concussion.

Already a two-time Kentucky Gatorade Player of the Year, the 2018 All-USA Player of the Year, and PrepVolleyball’s National Junior Player of the Year, as a senior, Rader added First Team Under Armour High School All-American to her list of accomplishments.

Watch Rylee Rader in action at the 2019 Under Armour High School All-America Match, streaming live right here on FloVolleyball, Dec. 31 at 7 PM ET.

Incredibly, Rader is one of two Assumption athletes to make the Under Armour first team, joined by Anna DeBeer, Rader’s teammate since the third grade. The two will play one final season of club ball together at KIVA before going their separate ways next fall: Rader to Ohio State and DeBeer to Louisville.

“I connected with Rylee and her family right away, just really enjoyed who she was and what she wanted to be,” former Ohio State head coach Geoff Carlston said. “In my opinion, she’s one of the best middle hitters in the country and will surely make an immediate impact in our program.”
