Razorbacks lose All-American hitter to Florida State

After four years at Arkansas, all as a starter, while capping her undergraduate years with All-American honors and helping her team to the Elite Eight, Taylor Head is moving on.

The Razorbacks’ outside hitter, third in school history with 1,899 kills, will transfer back to her home state to play for Florida State for a final season of college volleyball. She was granted that season because her freshman year, 2020, was interrupted by COVID-19.

Florida State’s head coach is Chris Poole. He started the volleyball program at Arkansas in 1994 and was the Hogs’ head coach until 2007 when he moved to Tallahassee.

Head, who was named one of Arkansas’ Top 10 athletes of the 2023 calendar year, finished the season second in the SEC in kills with 494.

Arkansas finished the 2023 season with a record 28-6, their best record since 1999.
