A consistent starter on a high-level Chicago Magic 18 side, Brian Kane is the latest talented prospect to make the commitment to a Georgetown program that is continually showing they were far from a one-hit wonder in 2012.

There were some obvious factors influencing Kane to make his commitment in the fall of 2013.

“The two main reasons I chose to go to Georgetown were academics and athletics,” he told “When I looked at their academic program, I knew I would be receiving one of the best educations in the country. Next, I considered the soccer program. Georgetown has had several years of a successful soccer program headed by great coaches.”

Head coach Brian Wiese and the rest of his staff earned praise from Kane as well.

“What I liked most about the soccer program were the coaches and the players on the team,” he explained. “When I went and visited Georgetown I was able to meet both the players and the coaches; they were all great people.” 

The school’s location was then icing on the cake.

“With Georgetown being in Washington D.C., it is a great opportunity to live and go to school in the nation’s capital,” Kane said. “The campus was attracting to me especially because it includes a brand new business school building, which is the field of study I wish to pursue.”

Kane joins a star-studded recruiting class that is anchored by New York Red Bull and youth national team midfielder Arun Basuljevic and Christopher Lema, along with Declan McCabe (New England Revolution) and Matthew Ledder (Bethesda SC).

Tyler Moore, Goalkeeper, SC Waukesha
Class: 2014
Commitment: Drake

A big ‘keeper eager to come off the line and jump start transitions, Tyler Moore found plenty to like about Drake – the school’s academics, campus and soccer program all earned a mention.

“[Drake is a] school with a great academic reputation, that consistently battles for the Missouri Valley Conference title and an NCAA bid,” he told

Moore also hit it off pretty quickly with the program’s head coach and his future teammates, and he’ll look to make an impact when he heads there this fall.

“[There is] something special about coach Sean Holmes, and a great group of guys on the team,” he said.
