CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson Volleyball head coach Michaela Franklin announced the addition of Jori Radtke to the program Wednesday. Radtke is a transfer outside hitter and comes to Clemson after a two-year stint at Northern Illinois. Radtke is slated to be a junior for the Tigers this upcoming fall.
“We are thrilled to have Jori join the Clemson Family,” said Franklin. “Jori is a skilled volleyball player that can play the full game and fits perfectly with our program’s philosophy of Championship Behavior because of her determination and drive to be a successful student-athlete.”
Radtke was a First Team All-MAC selection after starting 31-of-32 matches and playing in 121-of-122 sets in 2018. Last season, Radtke tallied 15 double-doubles, including 18 kills and 10 digs against Chicago State (Sept. 11), and ranked seventh in the MAC in kills per set (3.21). Radtke posted career highs in kills (19) in the Huskies’ wins over Central Michigan (Oct. 6) and Ohio (Oct. 20), and in digs (22) against Southeast Missouri State (Sept. 12).
Prior to Northern Illinois, Radtke attended and played at Stevenson High School in Linolnshire, Illinois, where she was crowned the 2016 Girls Volleyball Player of the Year by the Pioneer Press. The Buffalo Grove, Illinois native was also a Second Team All-State honoree in 2015. At Stevenson, Radtke set the school’s record for kills in a single season (552) and in a career (1,311). Radtke also helped the Patriots to a third-place finish in the IHSA 4A State Tournament.
