Pietrini and Enweonwu from Club Italia. Any list without them are in my not really serious. Enweonwu got injured early in the season but might be just as great prospect as Egonu according to people I know who have seen her. The winger/outside spiker Pietrini have been hailed on different sites, web forums etc, as the new Piccinini, as perhaps the greatest prospect Italy ever have seen. She also had a pretty good season in Club Italia in Serie A2 where she scored 533 points and was the 7th best scorer overall in the league. Not bad achivement for a 17 year old.

Apart from them there are an interesting prospect from Russia with the height of around 210 cm, Maria Daineko, who is the daughter of a former ex-basketball pro. I do not know about the level of her skills really, they seem to be shrouded in darkness, but she represented the youth team of Saratov last time I checked. There is a picture of her here:

French league is a very poor league, anyone can become MVP at the poor French League, thus you shouldnt add this Herbots girl to the list because it would be unfair to the other girls that play in high quality leagues.

Re: @BrazilVOLLEYGIRL French league is very poor you’re right but being MVP of this league doesn’t mean nothing .And being a holder of french team playing the champions league is better than to stay on the bench in a top league. Read this list of players in their early years in France : Rasic, Mihajlovic…and the last one Haak MVP last season and this season best scorer in lega italiana. I agree with Anton about Hanna HRYSHKEVICH even if she doesn’t play in a top league she’s one of the best player of the CEV cup

Haak played in France last season, and now in Italy she was just named MVP and outplayed everyone including Egonu.

Elena Pietrini Will be one of the best outside hitters of the world in a few years, she os beyond her age, it’s not impressive that she’s been named ‘New Piccinini’. Terry Enweonwu and Sara Fahr are great too. In Brasil we have Júlia Bergmann, she’ll be one of the best outside hitters of this new generation. Natália Martinez and Paredes from dominican republic, Russu and lazarenko from Rússia, Diana and Dani Seibt middle blockers from Brazil, Gunes from turkey.
