The latest women’s Division I recruiting class rankings are out for March.

Transfers have slowed down a bit, with another round possible at the end of spring and into the summer. International additions should pick up, while the other notable factor this year is several top recruits reclassifying from 2025 to 2024.

Here’s a look at the Top 30 classes for 2024.

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

1. UCLA (1)

Commitments: D Nicola (Nicki) Fraser (Real Colorado – No. 13), D Kamryn Winger (Virginia Development Academy – No. 15), F Isabella Winn (World Class FC – No. 19), M Avery Robinson (Florida Elite SA – No. 30), F Kara Croone (Concorde Fire Platinum – No. 40), D Paloma Daubert (San Juan SC – No. 47), F Samantha Sanchez (MVLA – No. 61), F Layla Armas (Mustang SC), F Jordan Geis (MVLA)

Transfers: GK Ryan Campbell (Stanford), F Lily Boyden (Washington State), M Alice Barbieri (Oregon)

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* (2)

Commitments: M Eleanor Klinger (Internationals SC – No. 8), F Jaden Thomas (FC Dallas – No. 10), D Ella Emri (San Diego Surf – No. 14), M Charlotte Kohler (MVLA – No. 17), M Samantha Smith (Boise Thorns – No. 31), D Elizabeth Boamah (Albion SC (CA) – No. 34), , D Sophie Murdock (Mtn. View Los Altos – No. 157), GK Kaiya Jota (LA Breakers FC – No. 183), M Maria Crisera (Beach FC (CA) – No. 190)

Klinger’s reclassification has Stanford’s class in the range of the top spot here. It’s a huge influx of talent.

3. Notre Dame (3)

Commitments: M Grace Restovich (SLSG Navy – No. 9), D Abigail Gemma (IMG Academy – No. 21), GK Sonoma Kasica (Florida Premier – No. 41), M Izzy Engle (Minnesota Thunder Academy – No. 46), D Eleanor Hodsden (Lonestar SC – No. 51), D Abigail Mills (Solar SC – No. 98), M Riley DeMartino (Bethesda SC – No. 124), F Ally Pinto (DKSC), 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)

The talented class received another boost recently, as Abigail Mills reclassified to join this year.

4. Penn State* (4)

Commitments: M Katie Scott (Internationals SC – No. 16), GK Kealey Titmuss (Nationals – No. 22), F Addison Hess (TSJ FC Virginia – No. 27), D Bella Ayscue (NC Courage – No. 103), D Kieryn Jeter (Tophat SC – No. 120), D Natalie Magnotta (Penn Fusion – No. 160), 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 part of the 07 national team and part of several players that reclassified.

5. Florida State (5)*

Commitments: F Solai Washington (Concorde Fire – No. 18), Taylor Suarez (Charlotte Soccer Academy – No. 20), F Wrianna Hudson (WNY Flash – No. 48), F Peyton McGovern (Virginia Development Academy – No. 56), GK Emma Kirlin (Carolina Elite Soccer Academy)

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

It’s a very strong class heading to FSU this fall. Simmonds is one to watch as the program has several standout players that have left from last year’s national championship winning squad.

6. Duke* (6)

Commitments: M Lauren Martinho (NC Courage – No. 6), M Mary Long (Slammers FC HB Koge – No. 38), GK Caroline Dysart (San Diego Surf – No. 105), M Sophia Recupero (FC Stars of Massachusetts – No. 117)

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

Duke has brought in arguably the top players from the transfer portal, while Martinho is a U.S. youth national team stalwart. Mary Long has potential to bring an immediate impact as well.

7. Texas* (7)

Commitments: F Amalia Villarreal (Michigan Jaguars/Solar SC – No. 12), D Cambry Patrick (Solar SC – No. 45), F Chloe Shimkin (IMG Academy – No. 53), M Lola Foley (Solar SC – No. 92), GK Kendell Williams (Eclipse Select (IL) – No. 128), Molly MacMillan (Slammers FC HB Koge – No. 160), 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. With the entire starting lineup returning, the expectations will be high in Austin.

8. USC* (8)

Commitments: M Ines Derrien (San Diego Surf – No. 36), F Lily Biddulph (Slammers FC HB Koge – No. 44), M Jaiden Anderson (Slammers FC – No. 83), F Katherine Park (Slammers FC HB Koge – No. 139), F Faith George (Slammers FC HB Koge – No. 151), M Peyton Nakagawara (Seattle United – No. 172), D Cassie Bibby (LA Breakers FC), GK Lana Gibbs (FC Stars of Massachusetts), M Eleanor Morrissey (Seattle Reign Academy)

Transfers: F Maile Hayes (Texas A&M), M Maria Alagoa (Florida State), D Molly McDougal (Mississippi State)

Several California standouts are slated to join USC. It's an impressive haul of talent on paper.

9. TCU (10)

Commitments: F Cameron Patton (Lonestar SC – No. 60), M Ainsley Moy (PDA – No. 68), M Morgan Brown (FC Dallas – No. 71), GK Liv Geller (FC Dallas – No. 96), D Blake Olivier (Albion Hurricanes – No. 101), M Kaela Martinez (City SC – No. 147), M Sarah Bonnecaze (Louisiana TDP Elite), M Abigail Cox (Portland Thorns Academy), D Elly Harrington (Florida Krush), M Cate Sarinopoulos (Colorado Rush), D Rylie Monahan (Slammers FC HB Koge), M Jordan Whiteaker (Colorado Rush)

Transfers: GK Megan Plaschko (Minnesota), M Sara Brocious (Rutgers), F Caroline Kelly (Saint Louis)

A big class is joining TCU, with four recruits in the Top 100. Geller reclassified as well, a top 2025 recruit that could compete for the starting role later this year. Kelly is a big-time addition from the portal.

10. Tennessee (10)

Commitments: M Bella Smith (KC Athletics – No. 29), M Skylar Miller (Richmond United – No. 78), F Reese Mattern (Richmond United – No. 93), D Jasmine Boggs (Virginia Development Academy – No. 133), D Nyla Blue (FC Alliance), F Kameran Bluette (St. Louis Scott Gallagher), F/D Devin Davis (FC Dallas), D Sydney Miller (Richmond United), GK Cayden Norris (FC Alliance), F Alivia Stott (FC Alliance (TN))

Transfers: M Luciana Latino (Penn State), D Zoe Cuneio (Purdue), F Kylie Finney (Baylor), D Muriel Kroflin (Oklahoma), F Samantha Woods (Michigan), M Sarah Bridenstine (Michigan), GK Addie Yelton (Mississippi), M Ella Giannola (Ohio State)
