USC Women's Volleyball: Trojans Inking 3 Class Of 2025 Standouts

An influx of talent for an already-talented program.

Your USC Trojans women's volleyball program is about to add an influx of new talent ahead of the 2024-25 NCAA season... although that talent won't be available for the immediate future, of course.

Per a USC Communications press statement, high school juniors Ava Knepper, Alma Yaacobi and Sofia Umeda have all inked national letters of intent to join the Trojans for their 2025-26 season. It's a coup for the program to acquire such highly-touted prep prospects.

"Ava is arguably the top attacker/utility player in her class," head coach Casey Moon raved. "Her skill set is dynamic, with a nonstop motor. Being a two-way player who is physical and creative makes her extremely special. To compliment her physical toughness, Ava is a great at anticipating the counterattack. Not only does she have speed, she has the ability to create one-on-one with an explosive shot. She is truly a team-first player who always wants her teammates to succeed."

At 18-12, the Women of Troy have had a solid-but-unspectacular run thus far this season. Most recently, USC fell 3-2 to the UCLA Bruins at the Galen Center this past Friday.
