Siloam Springs, Ark. (April 20, 2009) - Allie Rankin, a 6-0 middle blocker and outside hitter from Richardson, Texas, has committed to play women’s volleyball at JBU in the fall.
Rankin transfers to JBU after completing her freshman season at Arkansas Tech in Russellville.
Before heading to Arkansas Tech, Rankin had an outstanding career at Dallas Lutheran High School where she was a four-time All-District selection, including a two-time First-Team selection as a junior and senior and a three-time All-State selection, including a two-time Second-Team All-State honoree.
