It’s not easy to garner national recognition as a libero. Only two high school liberos made the cut for the 2019 Under Armour All-America first team list.

Position: Libero

Height: 5-8

Hometown: Redondo Beach, California

High School: Redondo Union High School

College Commitment: Texas


One of those two extra special defensive specialists is Nalani Iosia, a Texas commit from Redondo Union High School in Southern California. Iosia joins her fellow Texas recruit Naomi Campbell on the first team.

As a libero, Iosia is of course excellent on defense and serve receive, but she also boasts a super dangerous serve. This fall, she collected 94 aces for her high school team, averaging 1.3 aces per set.


“Nalani, she's a fun one,” Texas head coach Jerritt Elliott said. “She has an unbelievable skill set. She can pass, she can play defense, she's one of the few liberos who can run an offense from behind the 10-foot line in transition and is setting quicks. She has an amazing jump serve and I look forward to seeing what she will do in our program. 

“She's one of those gym rats who loves to be in the gym and she has a very high volleyball IQ. She is going to be ready to compete from day one.”

A four-year captain for Redondo Union, Iosia will also bring impressive leadership to Texas next year. To cap her high school career, Iosia led Redondo Union to a CIF Division I championship, sharing the Division I Player of the Year title with her teammate Kami Miner and finishing the season with 291 digs.

Iosia has four siblings and is following in the footsteps of older sisters Naomi and Norene, who both played volleyball in college—Naomi at Hope University and Norene at Hawaii, where she is a starting setter.
