Utah’s Zoe Weatherington Transfers To Penn State Women’s Volleyball

Penn State women’s volleyball is hot on the recruiting trail, folks.

On Thursday, the Nittany Lions announced they’d officially acquired junior outside hitter Zoe Weatherington, who’ll transfer from Utah.

Weatherington started 29 of 31 matches for Utah this fall. She powered the Utes to a 22-9 overall record by racking up 277 kills, 82 total blocks, and 54 digs.

Weatherington heads to Happy Valley with two seasons of eligibility remaining. She’s totaled 635 kills, 140 digs, 131 total blocks, and 39 starts in three seasons with the Utes. Additionally, Weatherington owns a .230 hitting clip across her collegiate career.

So far, Weatherington is the third player to transfer to Penn State this offseason. She joins former Purdue middle blocker Taylor Trammell and former Long Beach State outside hitter Kashuana Williams as the Nittany Lions’ newest transfers.

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.
