Leyla Blackwell N




Her 22 stats, when they made the final four, were unreal, last year more like Bekka and Andi. Probably an upgrade from Maggie. All three likely to play a lot if healthy. While Blackwell and Landfair are likely upgrades on CJ and Maggie, I liked our chemistry and would have liked it if both had stayed instead. But once they left, kudos on Cook and staff to bring in the best outside and best middle in the portal.

I agree. I would have preferred to have all the girls stay, but it was not to be.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Blackwell beat out one of the other two middles for a starter slot. I also don't think it is a given that Landfair will beat out Krause for the OH2 position. Krause was playing amazing volleyball right before she got hurt last year. If she can get back to that level, she will push Landfair for the starting slot.

With all our starters back, and with the additions of Landfair and Blackwell, I like our chances of getting back to the final four. Should be a fun year.
 
Not convinced Blackwell is a better middle than either Bekka or Andi. I think Cook might want her as an outside blocker. I see Landfair riding the pine and used as a situational player; hit .222 last season and defensive numbers do not impress. Wouldn't say her best days are passed, but . . .

With Beason, Murray, Krause, Pierce and Landfair, and Blackwell with 4 years only at Middle, no chance she plays outside for NU. It is possible, I guess, that she could be backup behind Beason, but I see Krause or Landfair as more likely there. I think she will get more middle play than Maggie, but I agree that Bekka and Andi likely will start more than Blackwell.
