George Mason signs three highly accomplished high school recruits

Three players who have earned some of the top accolades in club volleyball, beach volleyball and high school volleyball have committed to George Mason.

George Mason coach Jay Hosack announced Sunday that high school seniors Trey Harris, Trevor Kennan and Zach Talamoa have each signed national letters of intent to play for the Patriots beginning in 2019.

“This group of guys possess all around volleyball skills that will help increase the level of play in our practices,” Hosack said in a statement. “Each of them bring something different to the table, allowing us to focus on honing, rather than reinventing the wheel. We look forward to having them as members of the Patriot Family.”

Harris, a 6-foot-5 opposite from Norfolk, Virginia, was a two-time first-team all-conference selection during his high school career. Along with these high school honors, Harris once had a career-high 32 kills in a match.

Kennan, a 6-foot-2 libero from Redington Beach, Florida, was named an All-American at the 2017 AAU Boys Junior National Volleyball Championship and led his team to AAU national titles twice in the last four years. The libero in beach volleyball also won the King of the Beach tournament in 2014 and 2016.

Talamoa, a 5-foot-11 setter originally from Hawaii, helped lead his club team in Virginia to qualify for the USA Volleyball Boys Junior National Championship in six consecutive years. In addition, Talamoa can play multiple positions including libero and outside attacker.

George Mason one-year removed from winning EIVA championship and reaching the NCAA Tournament finished last season in sixth place in the EIVA. All-conference setter Brian Negron and libero Johnny Gomez highlight the starters returning for the Patriots in the upcoming season.
