The Georgia Southern University volleyball team received a commitment on Tuesday from six-foot-four outside hitter Liat Hackman of Beverly Hills, Ca.

Hackman is coming to GSU with quite an impressive resume. She recently finished her final season with Beverly Hills High School and is currently playing on the LAVA South club team. She has also been named to the All-Ocean League first team the past two seasons.

Hackman’s play has also turned heads on a national level. She was invited to play on Team USA in the World Maccabiah Games in Israel, where she was named co-captain and helped bring home the silver medal.

GSU head coach Dustin Wood is excited for Hackman to come in and immediately make a difference for his team.

“I have been watching Liat for the past two years, and there is a huge upside in her development,” Wood said in a news release. “Her high school, club and USA Volleyball international experience will serve her well in her tenure here at Georgia Southern, and we are excited to add Liat to our program.”

The Eagles won the regular season Southern Conference Championship and are heading into the first round of the SoCon postseason tournament against Elon University on Friday.
