I believe Jennifer will be graduating this spring and if she returns to play
volleyball, it would be as a graduate student. Graduating isn't really in
question. It's a matter of whether she wants to finish her volleyball
eligibility as planned when taking the red-shirt this year. She also has a
possible career in professional volleyball to consider. These are unusual but
very real choices for the double sport athlete. I'm hoping she gets
All-American status in Bball this year so she'll have it in both sports
(already earned that last year in Vball). I'm not sure how many have
achieved that but it's got to be a very elite club. Good luck to her on a
MAx salary for the WNBA, around $100,000. League minimum is around 40,000. Some
players get more playing overseas. A year of college is probably worth more.
This isn't exactly the NBA. It's the WNBA meaning that it could
probably wait. I imagine the top players get around 500K, most less than that.
This is not like she's going to be signing for millions of dollars. She is an amazing athlete, I would like to see her stick around and see
if she could lead the volleyball program to the national title.
I think BYU Women's Volleyball program would have to release her from her
commitment to play for them for her to renigh on that promise, and I truly think
they should be unselfish and do so. It's time for her to take advantage of
her stock in the WNBA right now. Thanks for all you have done for BYU
Women's Basketball and Volleyball, Jennifer. You are a quality girl and
