Multiple high school all-conference players along with a member of a youth national team will join USC.
Coach Jeff Nygaard announced that recent high school graduates Gus Acord, Andrew Condon, Lucas Frassrand, Simon Gallas, Corbitt Kerr and Shane Suxho have all committed to play for the Trojans beginning in 2020.
Acord, a 6-foot-1 libero from Studio City, California, earned first-team all-state honors with his high school team earlier year. He finished his senior season with more than 100 digs and contributed 97 kills on a .320 attack percentage.
Condon, a 6-foot-6 middle attacker and outside attacker from Villa Park, California, was a first-team all-conference selection during his junior season. In addition, Condon helped his club team win a silver medal at the 2017 USA Volleyball Boys’ Junior National Championship.
Frassrand, a 6-foot-6 opposite from Rockville, Maryland, made his high school all-county team during both his junior and senior seasons. The opposite also won a bronze medal with his club team at the 2018 Boys’ Junior National Championship.
Gallas as a member of the German Boys’ Youth National Team helped his country qualify for the 2019 FIVB U19 World Championship. The 6-foot-7 outside attacker also won back-to-back most valuable player honors at the two most recent BearWool Volley international tournaments.
Kerr, a 6-foot-6 opposite from San Diego, was named the 2018 most valuable player of his high school’s conference. In addition, Kerr played with the U.S. Boys’ Section A1 National Training Team in 2017.
Suxho, a 6-foot setter from Rancho Santa Margarita, California, earned his high school conference’s most valuable player award earlier this year and was an all-conference selection in 2018. The setter is also the son of former USC setter Donald Suxho, who was the 2000 National Player of the Year and a two-time U.S. Olympian.
These players join middle attacker Max Beck and outside attacker Adam Flood, who both committed during the early signing period, to complete the Trojans’ recruiting class.
USC finished last season earning the final at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament and lost to the MIVA champions Lewis in the opening round.
