Nebraska volleyball landed a commit for its 2019-2020 recruiting class who can immediately help the Huskers next season.

Keonilei Akana, who played for Honolulu Kamehameha High School and originally signed with USC, announced on Instagram Friday night she was going to play for the Huskers. Akana was granted a scholarship release from USC's program after its head coach left to coach at Auburn.

Akana will be playing indoor and beach volleyball for the Huskers. USC recruited her as a libero. She joins a recruiting class that includes Superior, Nebraska, outside hitter Kalynn Meyer. NU's top defensive specialist/libero is Kenzie Knuckles, who just completed her freshman season at Nebraska and made the Big Ten's All-Freshman team.

Akana's sister, Braelyn, was a freshman this season at Hawaii.
