Former Nebraska volleyball player Capri Davis will continue her college playing career for Texas.

Texas coach Jerritt Elliott announced her addition to the Longhorn program on Monday. Davis will join the Texas program as a transfer in January.

"She's an explosive athlete from the state of Texas that we are thrilled to get into our gym," said Elliott in a news release. "We are very excited to welcome her to our family."

“I’ve reached the decision that transferring is in my best interest at this time,” Davis said.

Texas had its season end with a loss against Louisville in the NCAA Sweet 16 last week. Nebraska’s season ended Saturday with a loss to Wisconsin in the Elite Eight.
