"We are really excited about Liza," commented Mooberry on Walker's signing. "She is an athletic 6-1 middle blocker/outside hitter that brings a solid work ethic and energy to the court. She's excellent in the classroom and a great fit for CSU."

A standout in tournament play, she was named to the 2012 Nation Ford Invitational All- Tournament team, the 2012 Virginia Tech Hokies Super Regional All-Tournament team and the 2013 Hillcrest Invitational All-Tournament team.
