BigSoccer.com announced its Top 10 recruiting classes, putting Missouri at No. 9. This is a program second under head coach Bryan Blitz, who started the program in 1996. The Big 12 leads the rankings with three schools in the Top 10.
“I have a great feeling that this incoming class, which my staff worked so hard to recruit, will have an impact next year,” Blitz said. “These rankings also make a statement about the athletic and academic prowess at Mizzou.”
Bigsoccer.com is not the only website to think highly of the 2011 class with TopDrawerSoccer.com ranking the 2011 Missouri class as one of their classes to watch.
“While the rankings are nice,” Blitz said, “we have to work hard and compete every day to reach our goals.”
The 2011 Missouri signing class includes nine student-athletes, with three from Missouri and an international player from Canada. Headliners include Kaysie Clark (KC Select Scream, Liberty, Mo.) and Caroline Stanley (KCFC, Lee Summit, Mo), who represented the U.S. U-17 National Team in the 2010 World Cup. Abigail Raymer (Whitecaps FC, Vancouver, BC) represented Canada on its U-17 National Team.
