The Georgetown men could’ve used a few more goals this past season. The Hoyas were shut out five times en route to a first-round loss in the Big East Conference Tournament.
Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, a young sniper was setting records and working toward the 2013 season when he’ll be just the weapon Georgetown is hoping for.
, our No. 49 ranked player in his class, is set to attend Georgetown in 2013.
Of course, his verbal commitment for the future will do little to quell any scoring drought for the Hoyas in between now and then, but it’s certainly something to look forward to.
Campbell set FC Delco’s single-season goal scoring mark with 21 in 26 games last season, so his skill set is clear and defined. In fact, his offensive exploits led the entire Northeast Region during the 2010-2011 campaign.
The 6-foot-1 striker is lean and decisive. He had a host of other college programs on his radar like Penn State, Boston College and Michigan State but he went with Georgetown for reasons as academic as athletic.
“I want to major in political science, and they have a great program,” he said. “There isn’t a better city to study in than Georgetown – it just felt like the right school.”
Speaking of the Virginia region, DC United’s Suliaman Dainkeh has recently announced that he has verbally committed to Maryland for the 2013 season.
An athletic and quick player, Dainkeh was recently invited to the U.S. U18 Men’s National Team Camp earlier this month. He’s one of our regionally ranked players and a potential impact athlete at the next level.
