Bethany Brafford, a 6-foot-2 middle hitter from Mansfield, Ohio, has
verbally accepted a scholarship to play volleyball at the University
of Minnesota, her father said.
Brafford helped Madison High School win the 1998 Ohio state
championship and led it to the state semifinals last season. Madison
is ranked No. 1 in Ohio and No. 21 in the United States this season.
She also led her amateur team, Team Xtreme, to a fifth-place finish in
the national tournament.

She has been recruited by 149 colleges, including each of the Big Ten
schools, and has been offered scholarships by 62 colleges. She visited
Minnesota last weekend.

Gophers coach Mike Hebert isn't allowed to comment about recruits
until he has received a signed letter of intent. The earliest Brafford
can officially commit to the university is Feb. 2.
