    Just realized that the Jacobs transfer makes it twice her stud player has left for SC (Andrews) romognolo probably doesn’t send McAlpine a Xmas card

    When can you say where she will be attending? Does this happen mid year or will it happen over the summer?

    It can happen mid-year or during the Summer. Mid-year depends how diligent the university (administration and coaching staff) and transferring student are in getting the paperwork together. Must be on top of things and strong grades helps a lot.

    Lots of movement happening.

    Yup, my DD saw that transfer last night. Read like a mid-year transfer.

    Yeah I heard that a player from UNC has swapped the "N" for an "$" and of course KM will do whatever he can to compete with Stanford and UCLA. Going to school out of state can be tough for a SoCal kid. I always recommend that a player picks the school not the soccer because even in a great soccer situation the player is at school all but maybe 5-6 weeks out of the whole year. This means that liking the overall environment is probably more important than the soccer situation.

    Of course it is easier said than done. There are 24 D1 women's soccer schools in California and 13 of them are in SoCal. There are also another 25 D2/3 teams in California that are very good options for players that want to remain in state.

    Good luck to you and your player. I wouldn't be surprised to see her making a significant contribution this season on a significant team.

    Another busy offseason. And this is just the beginning. Lot's of work to do to catch the top 2 teams. Both of which lose only two starters. It's going to be tough to get significant minutes on any of those teams and both have solid recruiting classes coming in. I wonder where Stanford is going to get the money from to afford their class. SS will contribute and the incoming keeper is an upgrade at the position but the rest of the players are walking into the Hunger Games whether they know it or not. I like it though because as the saying goes, "steel sharpens steel."

    Good luck to your player this offseason.

    Yes--KM very active with the de-commits/transfers....he also recently picked up two very talented 2018 girls that had both been originally committed to other schools (Wash St and Penn St)
    Thanks for kind words MAP-- BIG challenges ahead, but she's excited for the opportunity. Agreed-- steel sharpens steel....so true!
    Hoping your DD had a great recent US camp!! Always rooting for her :):)

    just curious about this process - Are coaches able to openly recruit players from other colleges or do the players have to reach out first to express their interest? While still in high school, once a commitment is announced, the coaches are not to recruit those players any longer so was wondering about any rules on this after college has started for these players

    She will be getting scoped next week and will be out for a month and a half rehabbing. The plan is for her to be 100% before the real deal in July/Aug. Thanks again for the kind words.

    Your player should be excited. She is going into an excellent academic/athletic/social situation.

    I had a great couple of weeks off from work! I have no soccer for several months so I will be in the Caribbean at the end of the month for a week sipping Mai Tais. My player is getting her knee taken care of and she is happy. This upcoming season is a 2 horse race and my kid is one of the key players on one of the horses in the race. Life is good. How's your New Year going so far?

    Our thinking exactly. She tried to tough it out but it has been bothering her since May.

    College coaches can NOT recruit a player playing for another program no matter the level. The player must request permission to contact from the head coach and must be approved.. Once, permission to contact is granted then college coaches and player can make contact with each other.

    If a college player contacts another college coach, before being granted permission to contact. NCAA rules are the college coach must inform the current coach....and that would be ackward!

    My wife works in academia (thank GOD, my kids got my wife's smarts), so she was able to consult with the athletic director at her school. It really helped that he was a former D1 athletic director too.

    Hey @soccer661 I heard that one of the Stanford 2018 recruiting class was not going to get in and now is a Notre Dame commit. Which recruit isn't getting in? There are 6 SoCal recruits and I know that it has to be one of the field players. I can't imagine that it would be SS or NG as they are two of his U20 WNT players.
