Several top programs have announced their incoming recruits from the club game. Along with that, the end of the season has seen a ramp up of activity in the transfer portal. All additions are taken into consideration when assessing the rankings. A new update will be released every month between now and August 2024.

Below is a look at the Top 20 Women’s DI recruiting classes for 2024.

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

1. UCLA (3)

Commitments: D Nicola (Nicki) Fraser (Real Colorado – No. 12), D Kamryn Winger (Virginia Development Academy – No. 14), F Isabella Winn (World Class FC – No. 17), F Kara Croone (Concorde Fire Platinum – No. 33), M Avery Robinson (Florida Elite SA – No. 29), D Paloma Daubert (San Juan SC – No. 46), F Samantha Sanchez (MVLA – No. 59), F Layla Armas (Mustang SC), F Jordan Geis (MVLA)

Talent from around the country is slated to join UCLA. Fraser and Winger bring national team experience to the back line, while Winn, Croone and Sanchez reinforce the attack.

2. Stanford* (1)

Commitments: F Jaden Thomas (FC Dallas – No. 9), D Ella Emri (San Diego Surf – No. 13), M Charlotte Kohler (MVLA – No. 15), M Samantha Smith (Boise Thorns – No. 22), D Elizabeth Boamah (Albion SC (CA) – No. 32), GK Kaiya Jota (LA Breakers FC – No. 177), M Maria Crisera (Beach FC (CA) – No. 185), D Sophie Murdock (Mtn. View Los Altos)

Gisele Thompson officially turned pro with Angel City FC. It’s not a huge surprise and the Stanford class remains excellent.

3. North Carolina (2)*

Commitments: M/F Emeri Adames (Solar SC – No. 6), F Kennedy Fuller (Solar SC – No. 7), M Ashley Pennie (Weston FC – No. 31), M Linda Ullmark (WNY Flash – No. 55), F Caitlin Mara (FC Stars of Massachusetts – No. 141), F Bella Gaetino (Michigan Hawks)

Claire Hutton is the latest rising talent to decide to turn pro, as she inked a deal with the Kansas City Current. All six of these committed players could end up seeing big minutes, as UNC lost several players to graduation and a handful to the transfer portal.

4. Notre Dame (4)

Commitments: M Grace Restovich (SLSG Navy – No. 8), D Abigail Gemma (IMG Academy – No. 19), GK Sonoma Kasica (Florida Premier – No. 41), M Izzy Engle (Minnesota Thunder Academy – No. 45), D Eleanor Hodsden (Lonestar SC – No. 50), M Riley DeMartino (Bethesda SC – No. 121), F Ally Pinto (DKSC – No. 196), F Annabelle Chukwu (NDC Ontario), D Randie Foor (Michigan Hawks), D Melinda Hathaway (Nationals), M/F Lily Joseph (Connecticut Rush), D Rowan Pearl (Indiana Fire Academy)

Grace Restovich reclassified and committed to Notre Dame, moving the Irish into a top five spot. It’s a very good group on paper that should keep the Irish in the conversation in a new-look ACC.

5. Penn State (5)

Commitments: GK Kealey Titmuss (Nationals – No. 20), M Katie Scott (Internationals SC – No. 26), F Addison Hess (TSJ FC Virginia – No. 27), D Bella Ayscue (NC Courage – No. 98), D Kieryn Jeter (Tophat SC – No. 130), D Natalie Magnotta (Penn Fusion – No. 161615), D Lilly Burger (PA Classics), F Aubrey Kulpa (Oakwood SC)

Transfers: M Jordan Fusco (Tennessee), D Kayleigh Herr (North Carolina), D Ginger Fontenot (Penn)

The Nittany Lions have a typically excellent class, that features additions all over the field. Ayscue’s been one of the picks of the group, as a ball-playing central defender that could also play outside back. Keep an eye on Katie Scott as well, who is in camp with the U17 WNT.

6. Florida State (6)*

Commitments: F Solai Washington (Concorde Fire – No. 16), Taylor Suarez (Charlotte Soccer Academy – No. 18), F Wrianna Hudson (WNY Flash – No. 47), F Peyton McGovern (Virginia Development Academy – No. 55), GK Emma Kirlin (Carolina Elite Soccer Academy)

Transfers: D/F Nina Norshie (Barton Community College), F Kameron Simmonds (Tennessee)

7. Texas* (7)

Commitments: F Amalia Villarreal (Solar SC – No. 11), D Cambry Patrick (Solar SC – No. 44), F Chloe Shimkin (IMG Academy – No. 52), M Lola Foley (Solar SC – No. 90), GK Kendell Williams (Eclipse Select (IL) – No. 125), Molly MacMillan (Slammers FC HB Koge – No. 159), D Vivian Geesbreght (Solar SC), F Rosa Maalouf (Ontario NDC)

Sprinkle some talented in-state additions with quality players from outside Texas gives the program a strong foundation ahead of its move to the SEC. Maalouf was a Signing Day announcement that brings an impact from north of the border.

8. USC (8)

Commitments: M Ines Derrien (San Diego Surf – No. 37), F Lily Biddulph (Slammers FC HB Koge – No. 43), M Jaiden Anderson (Slammers FC – No. 85), F Katherine Park (Slammers FC HB Koge – No. 137), F Faith George (Slammers FC HB Koge – No. 147), M Peyton Nakagawara (Seattle United – No. 168), GK Lana Gibbs (FC Stars of Massachusetts), M Eleanor Morrissey (OL Reign Academy)

Jaiden Anderson’s big move into the Top 100 bolsters a USC class that heavily leans on some of California’s best.

9. Duke (9)

Commitments: M Lauren Martinho (NC Courage – No. 5), M Mary Long (Slammers FC HB Koge – No. 39), GK Caroline Dysart (San Diego Surf – No. 103), M Sophia Recupero (FC Stars of Massachusetts – No. 112)

Transfers: F Farrah Walters (Santa Clara), M Mia Oliaro (North Carolina), F Ella Hase (Northwestern)

10. TCU (10)

Commitments: F Cameron Patton (Lonestar SC – No. 58), M Ainsley Moy (PDA – No. 66), M Morgan Brown (FC Dallas – No. 82), D Blake Olivier (Albion Hurricanes – No. 97), M Sarah Bonnecaze (Louisiana TDP Elite), M Abigail Cox (Portland Thorns Academy), D Elly Harrington (Florida Krush), M Kaela Martinez (City SC), M Cate Sarinopoulos (Colorado Rush), D Rylie Monahan (Slammers FC HB Koge), M Jordan Whiteaker (Colorado Rush)

Transfers: GK Megan Plaschko (Minnesota)

A big class is joining TCU, with four recruits in the Top 100.

11. Alabama* (17)

Commitments: M Maddie Padelski (Tennessee SC – No. 36), M Alexis Meyer (Colorado Rapids – No. 38), D Maison Smith (St. Louis Scott Gallagher – No. 111), M Kiley Kukan (St. Louis Scott Gallagher – No. 136), F Ashley Roni (Crossfire Premier SC – No. 164), D Breeanne Brewer (So Cal Blues), GK Madeline Munguia (Pacific FC (WA)), M Sophia Neves (LA Roca Premier)

Transfers: F Melina Rebimbas (North Carolina), F Nedya Sawan (Portland), D/M Zivana Labovic (Michigan State)

12. Tennessee (12)
