Former Nebraska All-American Kayla Caffey joins Texas volleyball team


When players on the Texas volleyball team report for duty on Monday, one more newcomer will need to introduce herself.

All-American middle blocker Kayla Caffey took to Instagram on Friday to announce that she will transfer to Texas. This past season, Caffey earned a second-team nod on the AVCA’s All-American team.

During the 2021 season, the six-foot Caffey hit .363 while averaging 2.41 kills and 1.11 blocks per set for a Nebraska team that reached the NCAA’s championship match. In Nebraska’s four-set win over Texas in the Elite Eight round, Caffey contributed seven kills and four blocks.

The 2022 volleyball season will be Caffey’s seventh at the collegiate level. She spent four years at Missouri and two seasons at Nebraska. Caffey redshirted in 2016 and received a medical redshirt in 2018. All NCAA athletes received a blanket waiver for a year of eligibility because of the coronavirus pandemic.
