Outside hitter Hayden Kubik, younger sister of Husker and Big Ten / national freshman of the year Madi Kubik, announced on Twitter Wednesday afternoon that she has committed to NU.
She’s one of the nation’s top prospects in the 2022 class after logging 400 kills as a sophomore at West Des Moines Valley High School.
Kubik said on Twitther, “I am so excited to announce that I have verbally committed to continue my education and volleyball career at the University of Nebraska! I want to thank my coaches, family, friends, and teammates for helping me along this journey.”
According to Prep Dig, Kubik is the No. 1 prospect in Iowa.
The son of former Husker defensive back Barron Miles is walking on to NU’s football program for the upcoming season.
The 6-foot, 170-pound Barron Miles Jr., who played football at Chandler (Arizona) High School, will join the Huskers. Miles had limited stats according to MaxPreps, but Chandler is one of the best programs in the nation. Three of Chandler’s defenders signed scholarships with BYU, while three signed with UCLA, Wisconsin and Northwestern, respectively.
The elder Miles was an All-Big Eight cornerback in 1993 and 1994 before enjoying a 12-year career in the Canadian Football League. He’s now a coach in the CFL.
