Kelsey Robinson, an outside hitter who played at Tennessee and picked honorable mention status from the American Volleyball Coaches Association has decided to transfer to Nebraska. She will have one year of eligibility remaining.
From the official website of UT Athletics, the 6-foot-2 Robinson, earned her second-straight First Team All-SEC honor this season, while also garnering AVCA All-South Region recognition. The Bartlett, Ill., native led the Big Orange in almost every offensive statistical category and finished the season ranked second in the conference in points per set (4.84) and third in kills per set (4.22). A six-rotation player, Robinson also ranked 14th in the SEC in digs per frame (3.50).
The junior led the league in double-doubles (22) for the second-straight season and finished the year with the highest single-match kill total in the SEC. She put down a career-best 29 kills in a five-set victory over then-No. 10 Iowa State on the opening weekend of the season.
Robinson also did a number on the Tennessee volleyball record books this season. With her first kill of the third set at LSU (10/10), the junior became one of just 18 Lady Vols in program history to eclipse the 1,000-career kill mark. Just nine days later, she posted nine digs at Texas A&M, making her just the fifth Tennessee player in school history to record 1,000 career kills and 1,000 career digs. Robinson, who is the only Tennessee player to record five 20/20 matches since 2001, currently ranks fourth in the UT record books in with a career kills per set average of 3.60.
