Another life cycle of college recruiting is underway, as June 15 marks when coaches can begin formal conversations with prospective Class of 2022 student-athletes.
A select group should have no problem finding homes, ranging from Seattle Sounders U-17 forward Austin Brummett (Bow, N.H.) and Oakwood midfielder Pearse O’Brien (West Hartford, Conn.) to Northfield Mount Hermon midfielder Augustine Boadi, Taft midfielder KK Baffour and Millbrook midfielder/forward Shakur Mohammed. They’re regarded as being in the top tier, but what about locals who fall into another category?
That’s where this story enters, and we’ve highlighted 40-plus players from across the region. Their quality makes them strong candidates for the next level, and now it’s all about finding a home.
This isn't a top-40 ranking, but rather a selection of players with promising futures. Just like with past classes, New England Soccer Journal readers can expect in-depth stories as college decisions emerge.
