U.S. women's water polo attacker Maddie Musselman, an All-County performer from Corona del Mar who recently helped the Americans capture the FINA World Championships in Russia, has committed to UCLA, she confirmed Wednesday.

"Happy to be committed to UCLA" the class of 2016 recruit posted on Twitter.

Musselman withdrew from Corona del Mar last spring to focus on training with the national team. Her play with the U.S. squad since has continued to blossom with strong showings this summer at the Pan American Games and at World Championships.

In Russia, she scored a goal to give the Americans a lead in the finals against against Netherlands.

Musselman's sister, Alex, is a former CdM standout and senior-to-be at UCLA.

"I was looking at the combination of academics, campus life and, of course, water polo," Musselman said of her decision. "There are many great schools and programs, and over the course of the year, it came down to where I felt I belong."

Musselman's announcement comes on the heels of U.S. men's national center Ben Hallock of Harvard-Westlake committing to Stanford. She is the youngest player on the U.S. national team.
