Coach Kelly Sheffield’s 2015 recruiting class, already expected to be among the top five in the country, has gotten even stronger.

Sheffield received an oral commitment this week from Amber MacDonald, a 5-foot-4 libero from Alpharetta, Ga., who attends Blessed Trinity Catholic High School in Roswell, Ga.

MacDonald was named to the MaxPreps Sophomore and Junior All-American teams the past two years, as well as its Small School All-American team this year. She also was first-team all-state as a sophomore and junior.

She helped lead Blessed Trinity to the 2012 Georgia Class AAA state title, as well as the state runner-up spot in 2013.

MacDonald joins a recruiting class that includes Madison Duello, a 6-2 outside hitter from Liberty, Mo.; Julia Saunders, a 6-3 outside hitter from LaGrange, Ill. (Nazareth Academy); Brooke Morgan, a 6-5 middle blocker from Dike, Iowa; Tionna Williams, a 6-3 middle blocker from Fort Wayne, Ind.; and Hannah Juley, a 5-11 setter from LaGrange, Ill. (Lyons Township).

NCAA rules prohibit Sheffield from discussing recruits until they sign their National Letter of Intent.
