After some key departures this offseason, Maryland volleyball added a graduate transfer to the 2021 roster. Libero/defensive specialist Kaylee Thomas will be joining the Terps from Alabama.

“We’re thrilled Kaylee decided to join us for her grad year here in College Park,” head coach Adam Huges said in a press release.

“Kaylee has a strong passion for the game and brings with her a wealth of experience playing at the Power Five level. She’s committed to our program’s values and vision, and for that we’re excited to hit the ground running in August.”

In her three years with the Crimson Tide, Thomas had 1,102 career digs in 369 sets. She became the 14th player in Alabama history to surpass 1,000 career digs by her junior year. Thomas’ best season came during her sophomore year when she was second on the team in digs with 344.

Thomas earned both her bachelor's and master's degrees at Alabama and will pursue a post-baccalaureate degree in sociology during her lone year in College Park.

The addition of Thomas comes shortly after the departure of key Terp Sam Burgio’s graduation left a void to fill in the backline.
