Charity McDowell Added To Irish Volleyball Class of 2024

NOTRE DAME, Ind. — Irish volleyball has rounded out its Class of 2024 recruiting class with the signing of middle blocker Charity McDowell, head coach Mike Johnson announced today (May 6).

“We are really excited about Charity, said Johnson.  “She has a tremendous upside physically and she will become a very good player if she can progress on a daily basis.  Charity comes from a great family and is the kind of kid we hope to surround ourselves with.  She strives to become the very best that she can become in all areas of life – athletically, academically, and personally.  We are looking forward to getting to work with her.”

McDowell joins Aubrey Hamilton, Lindsey Miller and Hattie Monson to complete Notre Dame’s incoming freshman class for the 2020 campaign.
