Other key USC returnees are senior middle blocker Robert Feathers, senior opposite hitter Cristian Rivera and junior outside hitter Alex Slaught, along with 2014 National Freshman of the Year Lucas Yoder at outside hitter and 2014 Freshman All-American middle blocker Andy Benesh.
Alberta currently sports a 23-2 record, including 14-0 in league play.
The Trojans will begin their 2015 regular season with a non-conference road match at Grand Canyon on Jan. 7 before opening MPSF play at home on Jan. 16 against Pepperdine.
