UAF Volleyball signs Aaliyah Muhammad
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) -
The Alaska Nanooks volleyball announced on Monday the signing of Aaliyah Muhammad, adding another piece the roster. Muhammad joins the Nooks after a season with the College of the Desert Roadrunners in Palm Desert, California.
“As we watched film we really liked a couple of different things,” said Alaska Nanooks volleyball Head Coach Brian Scott. “One, is that she has this great lateral movement and that’s important for a middle blocker.”
Alaska is in need of middle blockers after graduating Kim Wong last season. The 2020 recruiting class for the Nanooks is shaping up with Ashlee Adams, Marine Angely, Danielle Dodge, Miya Ohms, Rilee White and Muhammad.
“We are very excited to add a student-athlete of Aaliyah’s caliber to our team,” Scott said on Monday. “She is very athletic middle blocker that can immediately make our gym stronger in that position. In addition to being a talented athlete, Aaliyah is a great individual, whose character will make our program better. We are anxious to add her to our talented squad.”
Although the Nanooks won’t compete this fall, there are discussions of moving the season to the spring of 2021.
