From College to the Pros - The US soccer ladder

Who is going where?

One of the toughest parts of following youth and college soccer in the US is that it doesn't get the same attention as the other bigger college sports like football and basketball. America's fascination with the next big thing doesn't translate to soccer the way it does for other sports. My blog tries to help peel back the curtain and many other blogs/on-line sources help piece together the puzzle. The net of it all is that there hasn't been a place to go and find the information on parts of American youth soccer that are easy to find in other sports.

Well folks, that could be changing. ESPN Rise Magazine is tracking where the high school boys soccer class of 2009 is going to college. I don't remember seeing this type of compiled list in the past, but it is a great step in the right direction. This takes ESPN up a notch in my book.

This is going to be a great resource for me filling in my database. Too often I have to hunt for players after the season starts using Google and the process is time consuming and often doesn't bear fruit. Now the info is all in one place. Thanks Rise! They also have a list of the class of 2010 commitments.

Now it is easy to check out how your alma mater's freshman class is coming together. Enjoy!

  • Soccer is really not that popular in the U.S. compared to the European countries. But it is starting to get more audience. Thanks to the help of various soccer blogs like yours and specially ESPN for promoting this kind of sports.

  • well I think that the first comment on this posts said correctly, soccer is not the main or a popular game between men, I think it is more popular in women, but still the biggest sports are basket and football, that's why I bet more on these sports when I call a pay per head company
