Princeton signs three standout high school recruits

Three incoming freshmen recruits who won multiple championship while in high school will join Princeton for the upcoming season.

Princeton announced Friday that recent high school graduates Billy Andrew, Mike Fuerst and Kendall Ratter committed to join the Tigers beginning in the 2015 season.


Andrew, a 6-foot-7 middle attacker from Phoenix, Arizona, was a two-time all-state selection and as a sophomore helped guide his team to the state finals. In addition, Andrew competed in the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships.

Fuerst, a 6-foot-6 middle attacker from Arlington Heights, Illinois, was a multi-sport high school athlete who led his team to two regional championships. He also ended his high school career with the school record for single-season and career blocks.

Ratter, a 6-foot-4 outside attacker from Encinitas, California, helped his high school team win three league titles and the 2013 state championship. As a junior, Ratter led the nation with 78 aces and then finished his high school career earning Second-Team All-So Cal honors earlier this year.

Princeton finished last season advancing to the EIVA Tournament championship match for the first time since 2010. In addition, the Tigers return a majority of their starters for the upcoming season, including All-American opposite Cody Kessel.
