Texas secures its first 2022 volleyball pledge as Indiana’s Emma Halter commits to the Longhorns

Posted July 3rd, 2020


The Texas volleyball program received a verbal commitment from Indiana prospect Emma Halter on Thursday.

With her pledge, Halter becomes the first member of UT’s 2022 recruiting class. Texas has not yet received a commitment from the Class of 2021.

Halter is a defensive specialist and libero who is entering her junior year at Roncalli High in Indianapolis. This past season, Halter received a second-team designation on the Indiana Volleyball Coaches Association’s Class 4A all-state team. According to MaxPreps, she led the Rebels with her 7.4 digs per set. Halter also served a team-high 49 aces.


Sydney Petersen, a rising junior and two-year starter at the libero position, will have graduated by the time that Halter gets to campus. Texas signed libero Nalani Iosia and defensive specialist Reilly Heinrich during the 2020 recruiting cycle.
