So you've learned who the top players are in college soccer as we roll out our Top 20 Conference Rankings (Men
), now let's look toward the future.
Who will be the next 20?
Today we rank the 2012 incoming female freshmen most likely to make the grade on a future conference ranking. While their current ranking was taken into consideration the Future 20 is based on the likelihood of a player having success at the next level and thriving at their prospective program.
We'll start in the ACC. This is obviously subject to change as new players announce their commitments this season, but based on the information we have now let's take a stab at which names you'll find on the ACC list a couple years from now (please don't hold us to this).
