As if graduating high school a semester early and taking on her first collegiate semester at Butler University were not enough, Zionsville, Indiana, native Megan Carr has decided to take her show on the road. The 5-9 defensive specialist has announced that she will be playing for the Ohio State Buckeyes in the fall.

Carr began taking on more defensive responsibilities throughout her career, accounting for 5.0 digs per set as a sophomore (474 digs), 4.0 as a junior and 4.7 (598 digs) as a senior. Her 598 digs in 2016 stand as a school single season record. She made good on 93 percent of her career serve reception. Carr also excelled at the service line, managing 68 ace as a senior.

A three-year captain for the Eagles, Carr played in every set of her high school career (403) and led Zionsville to a regional title and the Indiana Class 4A Final Four in 2016.

On the club scene, Carr played for the Munciana Volleyball Club, and was part of the 2014 AAU National runner-up squad.

“Megan has a tremendous competitive spirit that will fit perfectly with our incoming class,” OSU head coach Geoff Carlston said in the school’s announcement. “We are all pretty excited that she will be joining our Buckeye family this fall as one of our radsters.”
