The 5-foot-3 defensive specialist from Raleigh, North Carolina, is the fifth-ranked player and No. 1 libero in the 2023 recruiting class according to PrepVolleyball.com. She attends Leesville Road High School and plays her club ball for NC Volleyball Academy.

Choboy originally committed to Minnesota in June of 2021, but coach Hugh McCutcheon announced on Oct. 16 that he will be stepping down at the end of the season. McCutcheon will transition to a new role at the university staring on Jan. 1.

According to MaxPreps, Choboy averaged 4.3 digs per set and 3.6 kills per set this season for Leesville Road. She earned an invitation to the Under Armour All-American Game in January.

She also played for the USA Volleyball U19 team at the Pan American Cup in July alongside Nebraska freshman Maggie Mendelson and 2023 commits Harper Murray, Bergen Reilly and Andi Jackson. She helped the United States capture the gold medal and earned the Best Receiver award. Murray was named Best Spiker while Reilly was tabbed as the Best Setter and MVP of the event.

According to PrepVolleyball, Nebraska’s 2023 class now includes the nation’s No. 2 player in Murray (the second-ranked outside hitter), No. 4 player in Reilly (the top-ranked setter), No. 5 player in Choboy (the top-ranked libero), No. 7 player in Caroline Jurevicius (the top-ranked opposite hitter) and No. 13 player in Jackson (the third-ranked middle blocker). Mendelson was also originally part of the class and the second-ranked player in 2023 before reclassifying to 2022 to join the Huskers for this season.

Choboy will join starting libero Lexi Rodriguez and walk-on Maisie Boesiger in the defensive specialist group next season. Kenzie Knuckles is a senior this season, though she has one more season of eligibility available to her because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
