"We feel very fortunate to have Davionna join our basketball family, head coach Robin Pingeton said. "She has great size and athleticism and with a lot of hard work I believe she will develop into a great player for us."
Holmes attended East St. Louis High School, where she played both volleyball and basketball. She averaged 14.4 points and 4.4 rebounds per game for East St. Louis, and was among conference leaders in three-point shooting. Holmes earned First Team All-Southwestern Conference honors with the East St. Louis high school volleyball team as was also selected for USA Volleyball's Girls Youth Continental team.
Holmes will come to Mizzou as a redshirt sophomore and will sit out a season before joining her teammates on the floor. She plans to study English during her time with the Tigers as well.
