As UA volleyball coach Dave Rubio signed three top-100 recruits in the Class of 2017 last week, his third consecutive nationally-ranked recruiting effort. There was one notable prospect who got away: Kalen Owes, an elite-level player at Phoenix Desert Vista High, committed to USC for the Class of 2018. Owes is the daughter of former UA basketball standout Ray Owes and one of Rubio’s foundational volleyball players at Arizona, Laura Bartsch Owes.
