With school starting on Tuesday January 16, hopefully, there will be an announcement this week of the new players that will join the team in the spring.   Should be exciting :) .

If past procedures hold true, there will not be an announcement until the new recruiting class is announced in February.

 

My guess is that is by NCAA rule. I would think that new (to UA), qualified student-athletes may be enrolled in the Spring Semester but not officially part of the team until the signing period/letters of intent (which occurs in early February).

Also, Jared has, in the past, held off even in February, until he was sure on some of his foreign recruits, to announce them all at the same time.

Well the three "new names" confirms what I have heard from a source on campus over the holidays!  There are still a couple of additions remaining that I had heard about -- two players coming from Portugal... I suspect the team was trying to add them before Spring practice, which would mean they are enrolled for Spring semester.  I had heard that coach Coppinger was overseas recruiting.  He's the GK coach, so I wonder if he recruits (field players) also...?

Wow. The coaches will have their work cut out trying to narrow that list down. Or are there normally 32 players on the final roster?

That is still too many.

Technically, with Costa gone will we be looking to add another GK so that we have 3?
