LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech head volleyball coach Don Flora announced Wednesday the signing of international prospect Audrey Fragniere to a national letter of intent during the spring signing period.

Fragniere, a native of Neuchatel, Switzerland, is the second prospect to ink with Tech for the 2014 season, joining fall signee Alyssa Ybanez out of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.

"We are looking forward to having Audrey join the Texas Tech volleyball program," Flora said. "She has a broad depth of elite experience playing with such great teams in recent seasons. She is an explosive and dynamic athlete who plays the entire game of volleyball. Her excitement to be a Red Raider and passion to play at a high level will immediately add to the environment in our gym."

Fragniere, who splits as an outside hitter and on the right side, currently plays for Sages NUC, one of the top teams in her native Switzerland. She was part of an under-23 squad that captured the Swiss Junior National Championship this past February.

Fragniere, who attended Lycee Jean Piaget ecole de commerce High School, can play all six rotations and will give Tech additional depth on the outside.

Her signing marks the third-straight year Tech has inked an international recruit after Emily Ruetter committed to the program in 2012 and Victoria Hinneburg did the same in 2013.

Tech will announce its 2014 schedule along with its incoming class of preferred walk-ons in the upcoming weeks.
