Middle blocker Rey Speller is hopeful of joining the volleyball Warriors.
Speller, who last played for Golden West College in 2011, is awaiting admission into UH.
Nick West is UH’s only returning middle with experience as an NCAA starter. Jarrod Lofy completed his eligibility at the end of the 2012 season. The Warriors and Shane Welch mutually agreed to part ways earlier this month. UH recently signed Long Beach City middle Aniefre Etim-Thomas. Davis Holt also will be back for his sophomore season.
