Lakewood star OH Berkley Whaley might only be a sophomore, but she already has attracted interest from national volleyball powers such as Florida, Florida State, Nebraska, UCLA and Penn State. The 6-foot-1 standout, recently named the Times’ Pinellas Player of the Year, also is getting letters from the likes of Auburn, Michigan and many others.

To date, though, she has only one offer.

That, Whaley said, came from Florida awhile back.

She added that Nebraska is showing “a lot” of interest.

Penn State could be an interesting school to follow as her recruitment picks up. The Nittany Lions won their third straight national title over the weekend in Tampa, and have signed Plant OH Maddie Martin to their 2010 recruiting class.

“They sent me some film of a match to watch,” Whaley said.

Lakewood’s season ended some time ago, but in volleyball there truly is no offseason. Whaley has been competing for the club team Pinellas Heat.
