FC Wisconsin Sets Record Number of College Commitments for Class of 2017

FC Wisconsin leads the State of Wisconsin for the sixth straight year with record 31 College Commitments for 2017

 

FC Wisconsin Nationals is proud to announce the latest graduating seniors that have now made commitments to play college soccer for the fall of 2017. The club collectively has 31 boys that have committed to 20 different Institutions, from NCAA Divisions I, II, III, as well as NAIA Programs across 16 different conferences and 11 different states.
This marks the largest graduating class of FC Wisconsin seniors to commit to play at the collegiate level in the Clubs history.  
With 9 players from the 2017 class committed to NCAA Division I programs, this is the joint largest number of players that the Club has committed in one year to play at this level. This also represents the 6th year in a row that the Club has led the state, by some distance, in the number of players that it continues to develop to play within the college ranks.

“We are proud of each and every one of these players.  The hard work, dedication and commitment that they have shown has been rewarded with the opportunity to compete at the collegiate level.  As a club we pride ourselves on providing a pathway for committed players on both the NPL and MRL Teams to play at the next level, and we are extremely excited to see the success that these players will have in the future,” commented Co-Director of Coaching Ben Shepherd. 

“To have 31 players committed to play at the next level is a great achievement by the club, the players, their families and our staff who all put so much work into making this possible. It is a testament to our long-term player development model that as a club we consistently produce players that are capable to play at the collegiate level. We look forward to seeing them continue to be successful within the College ranks, ” said Co-Director of Coaching Billy Solberg.
