UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The four-time defending national champion Penn State women's volleyball team welcomes five additions to the roster for the 2011 campaign.
As the calendar inches closer to the season-opener, GoPSUsports.com wanted to take the opportunity to introduce the Nittany Lion fans to the newcomers. We caught up with all five freshmen inside Rec Hall for video interviews. This week, GoPSUsports.com will feature one interview per day to get you ready for the season.
We continue today with Aiyana Whitney. Hailing from Norwood, N.J., Whitney is a 6-5 outside hitter from Northern Valley Regional High School. A two-time First Team All-State honoree, Whitney was named a First Team Under Armour All-American as a senior.
Born in New York, N.Y., Whitney has one brother (Khalil) and one sister (Anissa). Her uncle Ubusuku Abukusumo played soccer for the Columbus Crew from 1997-2000, competed on the USA U-20 Youth National Team/Olympic Pool Team in 1998-99 and the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying Team in 1996.
Meet Aiyana Whitney.
