Simpson And Campbell Named To Fab-50
BOULDER – Two future Colorado Buffaloes, Jahara Campbell and Taylor Simpson, were named to the Volleyball Magazine 2021 Fab-50 for 2021.
"I'm happy for Jahara and Taylor's continued recognition," said head coach Jesse Mahoney. "They highlight a very talented and deep group of recruits that we expect to impact our program next fall."
The pair are named to the longest running girls volleyball rankings which honor the top 50 senior-aged players in the nation. They join a long list of Buffs to earn this honor, including Nicole Edelman, Meghan Barkman, Kelly Campbell and more. Simpson and Campbell will become the 23rd and 24th Fab-50 to sport the black and gold. This is just the sixth time in CU history that the Buffs have landed multiple athletes from the same Fab-50.
Campbell, a 6-1 outside hitter from Chandler, Ariz., was named an Under Armour First Team All-American and was also named a PrepVolleyball.com All-American.
Her future teammate, Taylor Simpson, is a 6-0 setter from Calabasas, Calif., was named a Third Team All-American for Under Armour and did not have the opportunity to make the PrepVolleyball.com list as she didn't get to play her senior season.
In total 11 athletes are headed to the Pac-12 from the list. Three are headed to Stanford and USC, followed by a pair to CU and Oregon and one to UCLA.
The future Buffs signed in November and have since been joined by three others for the 2021 signing class; middle Bella Simkus from Denver East, libero Emilea Stepaniuk from Ridgefield, Wash., and PrepVolleyball.com All-American libero Emma Torstenson from Northfield, Minn.
