The four-time All-American will have one year of eligibility remaining. Hord was third in the Big Ten this season with a .394 hitting percentage. In two games against the Huskers this past season, she totaled 16 kills.

She will play a key role in helping replace middle blockers Lauren Stivrins, who has used up her NCAA eligibility, and Callie Schwarzenbach, who transferred to Long Beach State.

Kayla Caffey may return to Nebraska, but she is awaiting word from the NCAA on if she will be granted a seventh year of eligibility.
