U.S. women's soccer goalie and former Husky Hope Solo is getting some more, um, exposure.

She is reportedly baring it all for ESPN The Magazine.

"Being naked outside is very liberating….at least I hope it will be @ESPN and @ESPNMAG!!! GAMETIME BABY! Ball up!" she tweeted Monday.

Solo is expected to appear in the Body Issue, which features nude athletes in poses that creatively conceal their R-rated areas.

Solo also tweeted a photo of herself post-shoot in which she appears to be wearing little more than a bathrobe as she frolics in a fountain.

Solo, a Richland native who played at UW from 1999-2002, has seen her media exposure explode since the World Cup last month. That trend apparently will continue.
