An all-conference high school middle attacker will join Loyola for the upcoming season.
Loyola coach Mark Hulse announced Thursday that high school senior Danny Sutton Farrell has committed to play for the Ramblers beginning in 2019.
Farrell, a 6-foot-8 middle attacker from Westlake Village, California, was a two-time all-league selection with his high school team. In addition, Farrell played club volleyball for MBC 18 Pali in Santa Monica, California.
“Danny will provide us with some much-needed depth at the middle spot right away, and he’s had some great experience playing at a high level in the club circuit,” Hulse said in a statement. “He’s got a good, long frame, has been well trained technically, and has a drive to improve. We look forward to seeing him battle it out with the other great young middles we have on the roster.”
Farrell is already tied for the tallest player on the Ramblers’ 2019 roster. Loyola returns two First-Team All-MIVA starters but will be without four-time All-American middle attacker Jeff Jendryk who graduated.
The Ramblers finished last season winning a share of the MIVA regular season championship and advanced to the conference tournament finals.
