2018 recruiting

Recommended Posts

I believe that this young man is a 2018 recruit.   Am I correct that he is the first recruit for 2018?  I believe that Cameron Victor is a 2019 recruit.

Looks like this new verbal commit plays (or has played) for the US U17's.

The New York product is the No. 38 ranked player in the 2018 Boys IMG Academy Top 150. A member of the U.S. U17 Residency program this spring, Ritaccio earned a call-up to the roster for last year’s Nike Friendlies in Florida. His time at residency has limited him to three appearances

Welcome to another highly sought after soccer recruit.  Welcome, Sammy.

 

And I would also like to say that Jonathan Lewis is one very classy, super nice young man.  Jonathan replied back to the newest recruit.  Joining a legendary program.  Congrats.

 

Sammy, looking forward to seeing you on Cub Cadet field in fall 2018.  it appears that this young man is with Real Salt Lake Academy now and has spent time with the Canadian national team.

Class of 2021?  Am I right on that?

 

Apparently. I had no idea when I posted last night. All I had found was his tweet/twitter profile, which has no detail. I found this this morning...

I am hoping for 1 or 2 more kids from Portugal (hopefully like Joao) for 2018.  I thought I heard one of the assistants may have been over there recruiting some more a few months back.

I lived in Munroe Falls for some time. 

I have family (on both sides) living in Stow. 

I know the area very well.

And TennZip is a proud graduate of Workman HS, the former S/MF HS.

At the intersection of Darrow Road and Graham Road, there is plaza containing Marcs and some other stores.

That is where Workman HS used to be, back in the Middle Ages when TennZip was enjoying his 7 years.

So this young man, and I mean young, is pretty gifted.  Doesn’t play HS soccer, just for Internationals.  Kinda shortish, but skilled on and off the ball.  Is very intelligent, seems quick.  Probably a left-side fullback....fits Zips style.  Bulldogs probably would love to have him....but the verbal commit probably will nix any chances...

Leo Chappel has been very busy on the road since the season ended, and his travels are going to pay off handsomely, I am confident.  Yes, in Portugal, among other locales.  Looks like a number of incoming players will be eligible to play this upcoming spring season.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  :cheers:

I feel old when I see a kid from my son's class committing to a college. 

 

Will is an amazing athlete. If he didn't elect to focus on soccer he could be an all-state player in multiple sports.

What are Will Jackson's other (potential) sports?  Do tell.
