Houston Signs Haywood to NLI

Nov. 10, 2017

HOUSTON -- University of Houston Volleyball Head Coach Kaddie Platt announced the signing of Kendall Haywood to a National Letter of Intent on Friday morning.

“Kendall is going to have an immediate impact on the program,” Platt said. “She is a true competitor and has great training. Kendall is the full package as a middle, both defensively as a blocker and offensively with her ability to score. She is also a great student and will be a great leader for our program in the future. We are excited about what Kendall will do as a Cougar.”

Kendall Haywood
6-1 | MB | Goose Creek Memorial HS/Willowbrook Volleyball Club | Baytown, Texas

Haywood is a 6-1 middle blocker out of Baytown, Texas. She was a four-year letterwinner at Goose Creek Memorial High School and plays for Willowbrook Volleyball Club for former Houston letterwinner (2000-01) and assistant coach Gabi Carbone.

“Kendall has been the rock of this team,” Carbone said. “She has grown so much not just as a player but also as a leader. She has been the hardest worker and is truly the backbone of the team. She is a strong blocker and hitter.”

Haywood is a four-time 21-6A First-Team All-District selection. She helped Goose Creek to a district championship as a sophomore, bi-district title as a senior and runner-up finishes as a freshman and junior. Haywood leaves Goose Creek as the school’s all-time career record holder for kills and blocks.

With Willowbrook, she was a two-time GJNC All-Tournament Team selection, helping the team to a gold medal at the tournament in 2016 and bronze medal in 2017.
