Oregon volleyball gains commitments from three Under-Armour All-Americans
Oregon volleyball will add three Under Armour All-Americans to next year’s roster for the 2018 fall season, the most of any DI college.
The Ducks will add Karson Bacon, Brooke Nuneviller and Camryn Tastad.
Bacon played in a total of 360 sets during her time as an outside hitter at Rancho Cucamonga High School. She averaged a hitting percentage of 31.5% and had 480 kills this season en route to being named the AVCA California player of the week during the week of Sept. 11-17. She will be a middle blocker for Oregon.
After unofficially visiting the Oregon campus in the spring of 2016, Bacon told the Daily Bulletin that she didn’t see a reason to wait to commit to the school.
“It was beautiful there and I really liked the coach,” Bacon said. “I also got a chance to talk to some of the players and they were very honest. It seemed like the right place for me. I felt very good about making the decision.”
Nuneviller, a libero from Corona Del Sol High School in Tempe, Ariz., played on the U.S.A. Youth National Volleyball team for the past two years. Nuneviller played in 106 sets this season with 442 digs and 49 aces. She will play outside hitter for the Oregon.
Tastad will come in as a future libero for Oregon, using what she’s learned playing the position for Santa Fe Christian High School in Solana Beach, Calif. Tastad has a total of 452 digs and 37 aces so far this season.
CONGRATS TO CAMRYN TASTAD (16Brent) FOR COMMITTING TO UNIVERSITY OF OREGON!!! 🌊🌊🌊 #wavevb #wavenation
The AVCA and MaxPreps named a total of 150 All-Americans and Honorable Mention All-Americans this year.
The honored athletes are invited to play in the Under Armour All-America Volleyball Match on Friday, December 15 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.
