élan McCall was primed to be a superstar in Fort Worth, but her career as a Horned Frog is over after just two seasons as a member of the TCU Volleyball team.

An All-Big 12 first team and rookie team member as a freshman, the Leander, TX native struggled with injuries in year two, missing several conference games. She never quite got back to the dominating form of her freshman campaign, finishing her sophomore season with just 93 kills (after 370 as a freshman) in 51 sets played.

A high school All-American, McCall was a top 100 recruit out of Rouse High School. Her signing was a changing of the tides for TCU Volleyball and Jill Kramer, who has recruited at an impressively high level but has yet to get over the hump in conference and postseason play. The signing class of McCall, Katie Clark, and Ashley Wehrstein were expected to lead the charge into a new era of on-court success in Fort Worth.

Now, they’ll lean on a new crop of young talents to pair with a solid veteran class as they look to make the NCAA Tournament in 2020.

Meanwhile, McCall heads west to join a UCLA program that went 19-12 in 2019, losing to eventual National Runner-Up Wisconsin in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. She will sit out the 2020 campaign due to transfer rules (pending an immediate eligibility waiver from the NCAA), and will have two years of eligibility remaining when she returns to the court in 2021. Joining her with the Bruins in 2021? The daughter of former TCU co-OC and running backs coach Curtis Luper, Charitie, one of the top recruits in the state herself.
