2023 Women’s DI Recruiting Ranks: January

It’s rare for late pro signings to impact recruiting classes in women’s Division I soccer.

But Alyssa Thompson became the latest player to opt to pass on compete in college soccer, putting her name in the NWSL Draft and staying home to play for Angel City FC. Previously signed to play at Stanford, she’ll suit up in the pro game instead.

That aside, transfer and international signings lead to the biggest changes in women’s DI recruiting as the leadup towards the 2023 season continues.

Below is the Top 30 Recruiting Class Rankings for 2023.

Please send any corrections or omissions to editor@topdrawersoccer.com.

1. North Carolina (1)

Commitments: F Melina Rebimbas (PDA – No. 3), D Evelyn Shores (Tophat SC – No. 7), D Savannah King (LAFC So Cal – No. 10), F Mia Oliaro (NC Courage – No. 16), F Olivia Thomas (Michigan Hawks – No. 17), GK Abby Gundry (NC Courage – No. 26), F Ella Smith (Charlotte Independence SC)

After coming just short of a national championship, the Tar Heels have reloaded with the top-ranked class.

2. Stanford* (2)

Commitments: M Mia Bhuta (Internationals SC – No. 4), M Shae Harvey (Slammers FC HB Koge – No. 13), F Erica Grilione (Davis Legacy – No. 25), M Joelle Jung (MVLA – No. 31), F Maryn Wolf (San Diego Surf – No. 147), GK Alyssa Savig (Placer United SC)

Losing Thompson to a pro opportunity is a huge blow, though the Cardinal have still added a stacked class. Bhuta and Harvey should be able to come in and play right away. It’s an elite reinforcement in the midfield for sure.
