Under Armour All-American Profile: Kalynn Meyer

Middle blocker Kalynn Meyer is a legacy at Nebraska four times over. 

Not only did her mom Peggy (volleyball) and dad Andy  (discus/shot put) both play college sports for the Huskers, but her two of her older sisters both were/are members of the track and field team (Leah’s a junior on the current squad). So of course, joining the decorated Nebraska volleyball team for her college years was an obvious choice, once she settled on pursuing volleyball at the next level.

Position: Middle Blocker

Height: 6-4

Hometown: Superior, Nebraska

High School: Superior High School

Club: VCNebraska

College Commitement: Nebraska


Despite being the No. 5 ranked middle in the Class of 2020, according to PrepVolleyball, and the No. 21 player overall, choosing to play volleyball in college wasn’t as simple of a decision as it might sound. Not only a state champion in volleyball, Meyer also owns state rings in basketball and track and field. In fact, there might not be another multi-sport athlete as decorated as Meyer in the entire state of Nebraska. 

As a high school sophomore in 2017-18, Meyer led Superior High School to the state title in volleyball and basketball. That year, following in the footsteps of her father and sisters, Meyer won all-class gold in the discus throw and shot put at the track and field state championships and earned the title of Nebraska Gatorade Track & Field Athlete of the Year. Her discus throw of 175 feet, 7 inches is No. 2 on the state’s all-time chart.

This fall, Meyer led the Superior volleyball team to a 30-4 record and a fourth-place finish in the Class C2 state championship. At the end of her four-year varsity volleyball career, she had set a new Class C-2 state record for career kills with more than 1,800.

Meyer signed her National Letter of Intent in November and is the only scholarship signee for Nebraska’s in the Class of 2020. She’s also the first scholarship recipient from the state since 2014.  

“Kalynn is one of the best middles in the country and we are thrilled she chose to stay in Nebraska,” Nebraska head coach John Cook said. “Kalynn is dominant at the net and has a chance to contribute on the court right away.”

Add to Meyer’s long list of prep accomplishments a spot on the Under Armour High School All-America First Team. Although many Nebraska commits have appeared on the first team, a native Nebraskan hasn’t made the top squad since 2012.
