South Florida has made the addition of a Division I transfer in ex-Marshall Herd outside hitter Jac’cara Walker. Walker played for Marshall the past two seasons and will be a junior with the Bulls in 2018 when she has two years left of eligibility.

Walker was the team-leader in kills this past season for Marshall, logging 376 kills (3.92 per set), 236 digs (2.46 per set) and 33 aces (0.34 per set) in 2017. It was another strong step in her career after she was named to the Conference USA All-Freshman team in 2016.

Prior to her time at Marshall, Walker attended P.K. Yonge High School in the sunshine state. She was even the Gatorade Florida Player of the Year as a senior.

“We are very excited to welcome Jac’cara to our program,” South Florida head coach Courtney Draper said in the Bulls release of the addition. “Our staff loved watching her play throughout her high school career and she now has proven success as a Division I player as well. She is simply a great six rotation volleyball player. I think she is going to help our program on many levels and is a great match for our system.”

In her return to her home-state, the 5’9″ outside hitter will join a team that went 12-18 this past season who is looking to get closer to the 2016 version that won 19 matches. USF had five players who could play outside hitter on their 2017 roster, although one exhausted her eligibility.
