CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia volleyball head coach Shannon Wells announced the signing of outside/right side hitter Chloe Wilson (Nashville, Tenn./Harpeth HS) on Monday (March 21). Wilson was a member of the Wake Forest Demon Deacons from 2020-21.
“We are very excited about the addition of Chloe Wilson to our program,” said Wells. “I had the privilege to coach Chloe at a USA Volleyball event nearly six years ago, so I knew she was going to be a great collegiate player. Chloe will bring a unique challenge to our opponents. She’s 6-4, has a terminal arm, can take swings on both pins, sets up a huge block and has experience playing six rotations. With three years of eligibility remaining, we’re very confident that Chloe will continue to help us build Virginia Volleyball into an elite-level program and we cannot wait have her in our gym this August.”
Wilson appeared in 31 matches and played in 81 sets in two seasons with the Demon Deacons. While at Wake, Wilson tallied 130 kills, hit .210 and posted 47 blocks. In last year’s season finale at Virginia Tech (Nov. 26), she notched career highs in both kills (15) and blocks (4). During her freshman campaign, Wilson swung for a season-high nine kills against Pittsburgh (March 12).
Wilson was a Middle All-Region Team selection during her sophomore and junior seasons at Harpeth High School in Kingston Springs, Tennessee. She was also a TSWA Division II All-State selection. Wilson also competed for Tennessee Performance Volleyball Club, hailing from the same club team as Cavaliers’ newcomer GG Carvacho, who signed with UVA on Jan. 6. Wilson is the first UVA Legacy student-athlete in Virginia volleyball program history. Her mother, Kerry, lettered in volleyball in 1993 and her father, Shawn, was a four-time letterman in basketball from 1991-94. Wilson is set to begin training with the Cavaliers this summer.
