The Gamecock Soccer Team, which kicks off their 2006 season August 25 at 7:00 pm against the Clemson Tigers in Columbia at the Graveyard, should look early for contributions from four freshmen who were put on the College Soccer News Top 100 Watch List. The group includes, Andrew Evans from Brookland Cayce High School right here in Columbia, and the 2006 Gatorade State High School Player of the Year; Jamal Geathers from South Aiken High School, who led his team to the 2005 South Carolina State Championship; Sam Roca from New Jersey High School in Wayne, N.J., the 2005 Coaches choice for the New Jersey State Player of the Year; and Mark Wiltse from Montgomery High School in Belle Meade, New Jersey, a four-time National Soccer Coaches Association choice for All-American. These four players help to tie South Carolina with UCLA and Wake Forest for having the most representatives on the list. This stellar class helped South Carolina to be ranked as the 19th best recruiting class in the nation.
"This is a tremendous recognition for these young men "said Coach Berson. "It is a real credit to how hard these guys have worked and we are real pleased to have them here at South Carolina."
With talent such as this coming to South Carolina, it is safe to say that second year Recruiting Coordinator Bert Molinary is getting the job done.
