Kentucky senior outside hitter Avery Skinner will be playing in different colors next season. According to Baylor Volleyball’s Twitter account, Skinner is headed to Waco, TX, to play for the Bears as part of another year of eligibility given to players this season by the NCAA.

As you can probably tell from the team’s tweet, Skinner had a very accomplished career at Kentucky. She is third all-time in school history with four matches of 20+ kills, her career-high being 22 against Tennessee this past season. With this transfer, Skinner will be able to complete her Master’s Degree while also continuing to play volleyball.

“I am absolutely thrilled about the addition of Avery Skinner to our program. She is an extremely talented and skilled athlete with strong leadership skills,” said Baylor Head Coach Ryan McGuyre. “Most importantly, we are adding an experienced national champion to our squad. She sees the bigger picture and has a healthy ambition to be great and help those around her.”

Her sister, Madi Skinner, is still with the Cats as a promising young star. Along with the younger Skinner, UK is still poised to return a great roster next season despite losing Avery.
