Penn State Women’s Volleyball Picks Up Transfer Kashauna Williams

It took a few weeks, but Penn State women’s volleyball finally made its first splash in the transfer portal this week.

On Thursday, the team announced it’d picked up a commitment from former Long Beach State outside hitter Kashauna Williams. Last fall, she racked up a team-leading 452 kills en route to first-team All-Big West honors.

Across her three-season playing career, Williams has compiled 1,181 kills on a .223 hitting clip. This fall, she also tacked on 59 total blocks and eight service aces.

Williams, who debuted for Long Beach State as a freshman in 2018, should arrive in Happy Valley with two years of eligibility remaining. Long Beach State didn’t field a team during the 2020-21 academic year due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s challenges. She’s also among eligible student-athletes who received an extra year of eligibility from the NCAA.

Picking up Williams should provide key depth for Penn State and new head coach Katie Schumacher-Cawley, who’s tasked with rebuilding a competitive lineup. A number of Nittany Lions found new homes through the transfer portal this offseason — Kaitlyn Hord to Nebraska, Annie Cate Fitzpatrick to Florida, Jenna Hampton to South Carolina, Gabby Blossom to San Diego, and Emily Oerther to Mississippi State.
