LOS ANGELES - UCLA women's volleyball head coach Michael Sealy has announced his early signing class. Claire Felix (Colorado Springs, Colo./Lewis-Palmer HS/Colorado Juniors Club) and Jennie Frager (San Diego, Calif./Torrey Pines HS/Encinitas Wave) have signed National Letters of Intent to become Bruins starting with the 2013 season.

Claire Felix

Felix, a 6-6 middle blocker, transferred to Lewis-Palmer High School (Monument, Colo.) for her senior year for academic reasons after spending her first three seasons at The Classical Academy in Colorado Springs. After sitting out the first 11 matches this season due to a transfer rule, Felix recorded 133 kills, a .418 hitting percentage, 27 aces, 51 blocks and 60 digs in 18 matches, as LPHS went 16-2. Felix, a First Team All-Pikes Peak Athletic Conference honoree, helped the Rangers to a 24-5 record this season, an undefeated league campaign and a runner-up finish in the 4A State Tournament. As a junior at TCA, Felix recorded 254 kills, 53 blocks and 176 digs, leading the Titans to a fifth-place finish at the Class 3A Tournament. Felix plays club with Colorado Juniors Volleyball. In 2012, her 18U team finished third at both the RMR Regionals and the Puerto Rican Nationals, earning All-Region and All-Star honors, respectively.

"Claire Felix has a huge future here at UCLA," Sealy said. "She has tremendous offensive hitting range, especially behind the setter, so she'll be a nice added bonus to our offense."

Jennie Frager

Frager, also a 6-6 middle blocker, helped Torrey Pines High School to a Palomar League title this season. The Falcons (28-4) swept Scripps Ranch High School in the CIF San Diego Section Division I semifinals on Wednesday, behind 12 kills from Frager, and will face Poway HS in the section finals on Saturday. Last season, Frager, a teammate of current UCLA freshman Karly Drolson, fought off injuries to help lead TPHS to a CIF Section title, a Palomar League championship and a berth in the State Tournament. Frager plays club with Encinitas Wave.

"Jennie Frager is also another middle who is going to have a huge future here," Sealy said. "Her size is going to make her a very dominant hitter and blocker in the Pac-12. She has battled some injuries in the past 18 months, but she has come back strong and we look forward to her getting healthy and strong."
