Abstract
  • Division I women's volleyball currently harbors two increasing trends. First, there are more and more student-athletes who are committing to their institution more than 24 months before August of their freshman year. Second, the number of student-athletes that transfer each year is steadily increasing. Coaches have already publicly equated the two trends, citing early commitment and the negatives that come with it as hindering their ability to retain high-level athletes. This study, however, analyzed 6,404 Division I volleyball student-athletes who committed between 2005-2010 and found that early commitment is not significantly predictive or influential to be the main cause of student-athlete transfers or drop-offs.
