Before practice starts for Nebraska volleyball next Wednesday, the defending national champs held photo day to kick off the 2018 season on Thursday afternoon at the Devaney Center.

And taking part in her first photo day at NU, Texas tranfer Lexi Sun was all smile on picture day, surrounded by her new Husker teammates.

The sophomore outside hitter was a unanimous first team All-Big 12 selection last season as a freshman at Texas. The 6'2" Sun averaged 3.27 kills per set last year.

The California native ended her high school career as the PrepVolleyball national player of the year, the Gatorade Player of the Year, and the All-USA Volleyball Player of the Year in 2016.

Now, Sun is set for her sophomore season with Nebraska and is immediately eligible to play for the Huskers in 2018.
