This week, coach John Cook's Nebraska Volleyball Program will host its camp for high school players.

After realizing her potential on the court, Gothenberg's Tiani Reeves will be there having already signed with the Huskers for the class of 2015.

Reporter Jeff Packer has the story....

Gothenburg senior volleyball player Tiani Reeves is a Division One Recruit and that is just sinking in.

I never thought that I could do that in volleyball. I just got sold on volleyball, sold on the game, sold on what I could do. I'm so excited on what I got.

Reeves committed to the Huskers in Mid June, a couple of months before the start of her senior year in high school.  A four time state winner in track and field,  Reeves thought that would be her future but one night at a volleyball game in Lincoln changed all of that.

I will never forget, she called me up and she said I can do this and I said yes, I know you can but she had to believe that herself.

Reeves only recently started playing club volleyball on a serious level so she know that when she gets to Lincoln and the Big Ten the learing curve will be very steep but the first Swede ever recruited to play volleyball at Nebraska is ready.

There's been girls that when I was at national track they were at national volleyball when I was 11. So I have a lot of making up and  they are really excited about what I can do.

Coaches can see she has so much untapped potential that hasn't come out yet. That's really exciting and I can't wait.

Now Reeves will be living the small town dream as a Husker in a state that loves the sport.

I'm so excited because it's a volleyball state and I just want the girls in here in small town Nebraska to do something and believe nothing can stop you.
