IU soccer announces 2011 recruiting class

The Indiana University soccer team announced an eight-man recruiting class Monday, the first full class recruited by head coach Todd Yeagley.

The group includes seven incoming freshmen and one junior college transfer. Defender Eric Zavaleta of Westfield is ranked the No. 1 college recruit in the nation by College Soccer News, while midfielder Jack Coleman of Norman, Oklahoma, was ranked No. 10 on their list.

Other recruits include defender/midfielder Lance Davis of Washington, midfielder Patrick Doody of Naperville, Ill., midfielder/forward Kyle Sparks of Avon, goalkeeper Michael Soderlund of Boise, Idaho, goalkeeper Sean Weidman of Indianapolis and junior college honorable mention All-American midfielder Aris Zafeiratos from Athens, Greece.

This is in addition to SMU transfer A.J. Corrado, who enrolled at IU in January.

  1. Sounds like a great class, with several very skilled players who can handle and take care of the ball. Having a real good #10, as the Greek kid appears to be, surrounded by skilled backs and talented midfielders should make IU solid in all its lines and a difficult team to play against.

    Todd Yeagley was and is the absolute right guy for the job. It is obvious he has a clear idea of how to build a team that knows how to attack from the back as the better European/South American teams; especially against teams that like to surround forwards down in the area. A great class.
