5. Facundo Conte
With Coach Velasco reportedly swapping Conte from outside hitter to being an opposite hitter is the actual reason why Conte is on the list. We wonder how he’d perform as a right side attacker & how Coach Velasco will integrate Conte’s all-around talent in his system for offense and defense.
6. Max Holt
Holt aka Thunder Holt in Volleywood is undoubtedly one of the best middle blockers in the world right now. His pairing up together with 2008 Olympic Champion David Lee gives Team USA the opportunity to be among the top favorites to have won the World League & World Cup.

Fast forward to 2019, Ivan has now recovered but we have enough reasons to wait and see if he still has the same explosive touch he is popular for. Maybe a new hairstyle is the other thing Ivan will be capable of surprising us with. This one right here is one of the top Volleyball Players 2019.
8. Mateusz Mika
Mika had indeed played a very important role last year at the 2014 World Championship. There, with his formidable skills, he had helped Poland to win the World Championship crown in front of the home crowd.

Giba has incredible brand recognition associated with his name. Born in 1976, he won an Italian Cup in 2006 and won the award for the most valuable player. He may be a little shorter in stature as compared to his Volleyball peers, but he makes up for it with charisma and skills.
