Berkeley Prep outsider hitter Sidney Brown, the Tampa Bay Times' all-Suncoast and all-Hillsborough County Player of the Year, has been recognized as one of the nation's top 50 junior recruits by Prep Volleyball.
Brown was one of the area's leaders in kills at 5.2 per game, and was second on her team in digs per game (3.6) and blocks (27). She led the Bucs to the Class 4A title game, where they lost to MaxPreps' No. 1, Orlando Bishop Moore.
Prep Volleyball uses a panel of college coaches to determine "the 50 players in the Class of 2014 with the greatest potential to make a deep impact on the next level." Brown was one of 23 outside hitters to make the list, and only one of three players from Florida overall.
Brown has said she is considering Michigan, North Carolina and Stanford, where former Berkeley Prep star Jordan Burgess was one of three freshmen to make the All-PAC 12 team.
