Some of the top incoming college men’s volleyball recruits are capping off their high school careers with a national accolade.

A nationwide voting committee selected 20 players to the 2022 AVCA Boys’ High School Senior All-America Team that was unveiled Tuesday.

This annual honor is the nation’s only high school All-American team for boys’ volleyball. Players eligible for the team had to be a senior and their head coach needed to be a member of the AVCA.


Pepperdine, UC Santa Barbara and USC each led all colleges with two recruits earning All-American honors. BYU, George Mason, Lindenwood, Long Beach State, Princeton, Stanford, UCLA and McKendree also all had one recruit make the team.
