By Evan Jones, @EvanJones_DE

Freshman outside hitter Kolby Meeks has transferred to SIU from University of South Alabama for the spring semester.

In her freshman year for the Jaguars, Meeks played in 19 sets and in 9 matches. She averaged 1.47 points per set, 1.26 kills per set and had a .217 hitting efficiency.

Meeks had nine kills on 32 attempts and three block assists against University of Texas at Arlington last season.

While at Norcross High School in Georgia, Meeks was an All-State honorable mention after she recorded 431 kills and helped her team to an 6A Area 8 title.

Meeks is the sister of NBA player Jodie Meeks, who plays for the Detroit Pistons. That makes two Saluki volleyball players with brothers in the NBA. Junior Hannah Kaminsky’s brother, Frank, plays for the Charlotte Hornets.
