Sun Devil Volleyball Adds Transfer Claire Jeter
TEMPE, Ariz. – Adding more talent to the roster, Sun Devil Volleyball has signed transfer middle blocker Claire Jeter coming off of her freshman year to join the team next season.
"Claire is a tall middle with a very good arm that will nicely take one of the spots we needed to fill for the upcoming season," Arizona State Head Coach Sanja Tomasevic said. "She comes from a good volleyball club in Texas and has experience playing high-level volleyball, which will be very useful in a competitive Pac-12 season. I'm super excited to add Claire to our Sun Devil Family!"
Jeter is a transfer from Texas A&M who will be a sophomore in the upcoming fall 2021 season. In the 2021 season, she played 32 sets for the Aggies, totaling 53 kills and 10 blocks. At Georgia in March, she notched a career-high 14 kills on a .407 clip with six digs.
The Missouri City, Texas native has an impressive volleyball resume. While in high school, she was a four-year starter at middle blocker and right side at Ridge Point High School. She led her team to second and third place at the Texas 6A tournament in her junior and senior year, respectively. Jeter played three years of club volleyball for Houston Skyline Juniors, leading her team to a National Championship at the USAV National Level in 2016.
As a senior, Jeter was named an All-American by PrepVolleyball.com, as well as being named to the Under Armour All-Region team and the Under Armour All-American Second Team. As a junior, Jeter amassed many honors including being named to the AVCA Preseason Phenom List, being named the MVP of the 6A District and earning Academic All-District four consecutive years. In those seasons, she was named to the Texas All-State Team, making the state tournament team in her junior year.
Her parents are Zach and Rachel and she has one younger brother named Austin. Her mother played volleyball at San Jacinto Junior College for two years and her dad played football at Tabor College.
