PROVO, Utah – BYU men’s volleyball has signed two new recruits – Zach Hendrickson and Charlie Siragusa – BYU head coach Shawn Olmstead announced Thursday.

"Our program is excited about the addition of Zach and Charlie," Olmstead said. "Both are great young men with character coming from outstanding families. Their training and experience in the sport will help them adjust quickly to our team, and we look forward to having them on campus soon."

Hendrickson, a native of Louisville, Kentucky, will play libero for the Cougars.

The incoming freshman helped his Saint Xavier High School squad to state titles from 2014-16. He was a team captain from 2015-16 and also participated on the USA Volleyball Pipeline program from 2013-16.

Siragusa, from Webster, New York, will compete for the Cougars as either an outside or opposite hitter.

Siragusa helped his McQuaid Jesuit High School compete for a state title in 2014 and 2015, becoming state champions the latter year. He was also named to the All-Greater Rochester First Team in 2016. 

The two recruits will help replace the three seniors BYU will lose at the conclusion of the 2017 season.
