USC women's basketball head coach Michael Cooper continued to rebuild the Women of Troy Vaioletama.jpgby adding three players who comprise the #8 recruiting class in the nation, according to ESPN HoopGurlz.

The class consists of two McDonald's All-Americans, PF Alexyz Vaioletama (Mater Dei HS - pictured) and Ariya Crook-Williams (Long Beach Poly HS), plus top forward Deanna Calhoun, who is rehabbing from knee surgery.

"It's really great to be able to announce our second recruiting class to USC," Cooper said. "My coaches and I worked hard to recruit and sign talented, hard-working young women who are ready to help this program take the next step. Using the WNIT championship as a springboard, we are excited about the addition of Deanna, Ariya and Alexyz and the experience, size and depth they add to our veteran team."
