Purdue’s Taylor Trammell Transfers To Penn State Women’s Volleyball

Amid a flurry of in-conference transfers, Penn State women’s volleyball picked up a major piece on Saturday when it secured a commitment from former Purdue middle blocker Taylor Trammell.

Trammell, who played for the Boilermakers for the last two seasons, will transfer to Penn State as a junior. Her first collegiate action came last spring during the Big Ten’s pandemic-modified season.

“I am so excited to announce that I will be continuing my academic and volleyball career at Penn State University,” Trammell wrote on Instagram. “I am so grateful to be a part of such a great program and the State College community.”

Across her career, Trammell has racked up 219 kills, 246 total blocks, and 25 digs. She led the Boilermakers with 138 blocks as a freshman last spring and owns a career .359 hitting clip.

Trammell started all 23 games for Purdue across the team’s pandemic-modified spring 2021 season. She saw a slightly reduced role this past fall when she started 18 matches but appeared in 26 total games.

At Penn State, Trammell should see some action at the net next fall next to established starter Allie Holland. Four-time All-American middle blocker Kaitlyn Hord transferred to Nebraska last month and will spend her last year of eligibility with the Cornhuskers.

So far, Trammell is just the second player to transfer to Penn State this offseason. She joins former Long Beach State outside hitter Kasahuna Williams, who’ll transfer with two years of eligibility remaining. Last fall, Williams racked up a team-leading 452 kills en route to first-team All-Big West honors.

It’s likely that first-year head coach Katie Schumacher-Cawley will continue exploring the transfer portal this offseason to fill out Penn State’s roster. A number of previous Nittany Lions found new homes through the transfer portal — Hord to Nebraska, Annie Cate Fitzpatrick to Florida, Jenna Hampton to South Carolina, Gabby Blossom to San Diego, and Emily Oerther to Mississippi State.
