Following the end of the 2023 women’s volleyball season, USF head coach Diogo Silva announced the 2024 signing class for the upcoming season. The Dons welcomed three new members to the team for the fall of 2024 — Shannon Sheehy, Delaney Ewing, and Shannon Knight. The Foghorn spoke with Ewing about her commitment to USF. 

Ewing is eager to get to the Hilltop after signing her letter of intent on Jan. 17. She is finishing her final year of high school in Fort Collins, Colorado, and said she “couldn’t be more excited about moving.” 

Coach Silva said, “I have no doubt she is going to succeed. She knows the lesson of wanting, working hard, and achieving.” 

Ewing has been to San Francisco many times, but her most recent visit sealed the deal for her  commitment to USF. She said, “At the time of my visit the freshman girls were amazing and so welcoming.”

She recalls connecting with sophomore libero Abby Wadas when she visited the Hilltop. She says “I find it surreal that I am now seen as a leader. When it feels like just yesterday I was the nervous freshman walking on.”

Ewing said, “It was the best visit I went on. So special and so magical in a way.” 

The process of commitment for Ewing started in her junior year of high school. Through the college commitment process, she received offers from Colorado State University, Colgate College, California State University, Sacramento, and California State University, Fresno. For Ewing, “USF always piqued my interest- and it felt good knowing [Silva] was extremely interested.” 

With the guidance of Wadas, Silva, and the entire team, Ewing has a community awaiting her on the Hilltop.
