San Jose, Calif.--Taylor Elliott, a 6-1 middle blocker from Alameda, will join the San José State University volleyball team beginning with the 2015 season, as announced by head coach Jolene Shepardson.
Elliott played at the College of Alameda for the 2013 and 2014 seasons. She was a 2014 first team All-Bay Valley Conference honoree and was the team's Most Valuable Player this past season. Elliot is also a two-time academic honor roll honoree.
A 2012 graduate of Bishop O'Dowd High School, Elliott played two years on the varsity team and was named a second-team all-conference honoree as a senior.
