    Since we are starting to see who's in the new 2018 recruiting classes, and spring season is upon us, I'm starting the new thread for the new year (in a slightly different format!)

    Impressive and aggressive scheduling IMHO. Shows the confidence AC has in her squad. Someone wants another Natty

    This isn't a bad schedule either....

    Some programs just can't get this kind of attention when scheduling. I guess different talent levels and where that program is in the "big picture" influences?

    She is not lacking in belief in the young women under her charge. The spring for them is about growth. My player is already missing being on the pitch and is bummed that she isn't getting to play in any of these excellent games. Texas A&M is a good side. They lose a little talent but should be the favorite along with Florida in the SEC.

    She is really going to like the schedule this fall. They really like their chances this year.

    She knows. She has a few other players she loves watching too. Especially a certain GK

    No official press yet, but it looks like Pepperdine officially signed:

    Trinity Watson - CA
    Leyla McFarland - CA
    Olivia Packer - NV
    Nicolette Lewis - CA
    Kinsey Ehman - AZ
    Isabel Nelson- TX

    If there are others I didn't see anything yet.

    There is a big gap between Stanford and UCLA and the rest of the country. North Carolina is the closest but Stanford and UCLA have no weaknesses when they are 100%. The only team beating either other than each other is a pro team or WNT.

    I would take either of them against our U20s.

    @surfrider hey Ken you been a little quiet. How is $C's pathetic recruiting class looking? I know that you are swinging on Stanford's class (especially since they never recruited your kid). How did the Trojans do?

    Has anyone heard or know of any players that walk on to a team but end up earning a scholarship? How hard is this to achieve for a young athlete?

    It happens. I have also heard of players getting only book money to start and then earning a scholarship increase. Lots of different roads to Rome. The only constant is hard work and support.
