In two years, Reilly Heinrich will make a short move from Leander to the 40 Acres.
A libero who is finishing up her sophomore year at Leander’s Rouse High, Heinrich gave a verbal commitment to Texas’ volleyball program this week. Texas Tech signee Katy Northcut was Rouse’s libero this past season, but Heinrich still averaged 2.3 digs per set according to Maxpreps.com. With Heinrich on its roster, Rouse reached the Class 5A championship game.
The 5-5 Heinrich also plays for the Austin Juniors volleyball club.

Heinrich joins a recruiting class that already includes Mansfield Lake Ridge outside hitter Madison Williams and Naomi Cabello, a setter from Florida. Those players won’t arrive at Texas until 2020.
Sydney Petersen is the only libero currently in UT’s program who is expected to be around in 2020. Peterson signed with Texas in November and will be a freshman this fall.
