Columbus Crew forward Josh Bartels will attend Akron in fall 2023




“I decided to commit to Akron because of the environment surrounding the great style of play, from the way the team bonded, to the quality of play on the field,” Bartels told TopDrawersoccer. “It felt like somewhere I wanted to truly be.”


“I specifically liked the traditions that the team held, the goals they set for themselves, the pre-game talks,” he said. “It was all for the better of the group rather than the individual.”

Zips are #4 in Top Drawer recruiting rankings

fellow new league member Georgetown is #3




3. Georgetown* (7)

Commitments: M Mateo Ponce Ocampo (FC Westchester – No. 36), D Oliver Stafford (NYCFC – No. 81), M Eric Howard (Crossfire Premier – No. 122), M Matthew Van Horn (Shattuck St. Mary’s – No. 141), M John Heaps (Alabama FC), M Matthew Helfrich (Bethesda SC)

Six players were confirmed via a Twitter announcement. Georgetown only loses one starter from this fall’s squad, setting them up for a strong platform for 2023.


4. Akron (5)

Akron’s secured commitments from some of the top talent from domestic ranks. Getting Borneo on campus will be critical, as he’s emerged as a high level prospect for the Crew.
