League One Volleyball (LOVB) announced on Tuesday morning that Jordan Larson, one of the most accomplished players of her generation, has joined LOVB’s pro league and will anchor LOVB Omaha Volleyball, alongside fellow former Husker Justine Wong-Orantes.

Larson’s role at the University of Nebraska will remain unchanged for the upcoming collegiate season. She will continue to serve as an assistant coach on head coach John Cook’s staff.

“Increasing access to the sport of volleyball is core to who I am, so I could not be more excited to join an organization that is also so committed to advancing the game and every person who plays it,” said Larson. “Playing for LOVB Omaha Volleyball is an incredible full circle moment for me, and having the opportunity to play professionally for the first time in front of the community who has given me so much and supported me since I was young. With LOVB, I can’t wait to create even more impact on and off the court and inspire the next generation of young Nebraskan athletes to pursue their volleyball dreams.”

One of the greatest American volleyball players in history, Larson was the team captain, Best Outside Hitter and Most Valuable Player when the U.S. won its first Olympic women’s volleyball gold medal in Tokyo in 2021. She is currently training in preparation for the Paris 2024 Olympics later this summer.

A native of Hooper, Neb., Larson was a standout on some of the greatest teams in program history from 2005 to 2008 and was inducted into the Nebraska Athletic Hall of Fame in 2020. She helped Nebraska to a top-five NCAA Tournament finish in each of her four seasons. The Huskers went 127-8 during her career with four Big 12 Conference titles and three trips to the NCAA semifinals, including the 2006 national title and a runner-up finish in 2005.
