NORTHRIDGE, Calif. - Cal State Northridge head men's volleyball coach Jeff Campbell has announced the signing of two additional players, Andrew Freiha and Arvis Greene, who will join three fall signees in donning the red, black and white in 2013-14.
"This is one of the finest recruiting classes we've ever had at Cal State Northridge," said Campbell. "All five of these young men have great character and are talented players on the court but also excellent academically."
Andrew Frieha, a 6-5 outside/opposite hitter from Otay Ranch High School in Chula Vista, Calif., is the first player to sign with the Matadors during the late signing period and fourth overall. Freiha was recently named a Boys High School First Team All-American by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA). He was also named first team All-CIF in 2013 as well as first team All-Mesa League. The Mustangs won three consecutive CIF San Diego Section Coast championships from 2011-13. Freiha, who was a teammate of current Matador Nick Alegrado, also plays for Coast Volleyball Club in San Diego.
"Andrew is a tall, lean and long volleyball player," said Campbell. "He had a great high school career winning CIF three times so he's proven winner. He's a great jumper that plays at a very high level and we're excited to have him join our program."
Arvis Greene, a 6-6 middle blocker from University High School in Los Angeles, Calif., is the second player to sign with the Matadors during the late signing period and fifth overall. Greene was a two-time first team All-City selection (2012, 2013) and also made the Los Angeles Volleyball All-Star Team. Led the City Section in both hitting percentage and kills percentage as a senior. Greene, who also played basketball for his high school team, also plays for Bones Volleyball Club in Thousand Oaks.
"Arvis is a multi-sport athlete who touches 12-0, so he's super athletic," said Campbell. "He should be one of most athletic players on the team next year and he's also an excellent student. We're equally excited to have Arvis join our team."
Freiha and Greene will join the trio of Justin Beskeen, Trevor Bryant and Will Parke who signed with Cal State Northridge during the early signing period.
