Kiki Iriafen, the potential No. 1 pick in next year's WNBA draft, committed to play for USC this upcoming season, she told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Iriafen, who was the ninth-ranked recruit in the class of 2021, has spent the past three seasons at Stanford.

The 6-foot-3 forward had a breakout 2023-24 campaign, averaging 19.4 points, 11 boards, and 2.3 assists across 36 appearances. She was named the Pac-12's Most Improved Player and earned the Katrina McClain Award as the top power forward in women's college basketball.

Iriafen joins a talented Trojans core featuring star guard JuJu Watkins and the nation's top-ranked recruiting class.

The Trojans went 29-6 last season en route to their first Elite Eight appearances in 30 years.
