Editor’s note: We begin our countdown to the start of the fall 2021 NCAA Division I volleyball season with this weekly look at the Big Ten, 14 programs in 14 Thursdays. VolleyballMag.com contributor Emily Ehman is a former Northwestern libero, lived in the bubble in Dallas and covered the inaugural Athletes Unlimited volleyball this spring, and does analysis on Big Ten volleyball broadcasts.
Emily Londot had a spectacular freshman season for Ohio State, which advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Londot, a 6-foot-3 right side from Utica, Ohio, was both the VolleyballMag.com and AVCA national freshman of the year. She led her team by far in kills, averaging 4.07/set and tied for second in blocks.
We cover a lot of ground in a short time, including the success the Buckeyes had this spring, how Londot got to know new coach Jen Flynn Oldenburg in Egypt, and where to eat in Columbus:
