Former Missouri Tigers defensive specialist Andie Hanus has found a new school by transferring to Delaware. A sophomore in 2017, Hanus will be a junior come the fall of 2018 with two years left of eligibility. Although it isn’t a certainty, it would remain likely that she is immediately eligible since she is changing conferences.
A 5’8″ native of Omaha, Nebraska, Hanus attended Missouri after receiving a plethora of honors for her time at Marian High School. She initially intended to redshirt as a freshman in 2016, but instead played in 14 matches. That led to this past season when she appeared in 112 sets and totaled 98 digs, nine assists and an ace.
Missouri is coming off of a 22-12 season in which they went 13-5 in the SEC and made a run to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season. The 2017 roster featured just a pair of defensive specialists, so the Tigers will be a bit short in terms of returners at the position come 2018.
From old to new, Hanus’ new destination, Delaware, is coming off of a 5-21 season. They’re just a year removed from a 16-win season though as Hanus will look to help the program gain in the win column. She will join a roster that had three defensive specialists/liberos last year – all who were underclassmen and seem likely to return at the position with Hanus for 2018.
