Our continued look at the signing classes across the country takes us to a few men’s programs you should keep an eye on. Villanova
Aaron Dennis (Cosmos Academy East), Matthew Wiltse (PDA), Hayden Harr (PDA)Skinny:
Wiltse is our No. 37 ranked prospect and a gifted player with U.S. National Team experience. He marks well and steps to intercept passes with regularity. Wiltse will join teammate Harr, a striker who currently leads the squad in goals. Harr has good size that should translate well to the next level. Dennis is a big target up top who has shown his considerable potential this season.

Tomas Granitto (Weston FC), Yianni Sarris (Internationals SC -Ohio), Nathan Ingham (Ontario, Canada), Xavier Silva (Weston FC). Skinny:
The Eagles picked up two solid attackers from the high-octane Weston FC squad of the Development Academy. At the rate that team scores goals, signing a Weston FC player is a good investment. Xavier Silva is a good threat up top while Granitto could pay dividends in the middle of the field. Sarris is a midfielder, and Ingham a goalkeeper from Canada. Dayton
David Abidor (Shattuck St. Mary’s Academy), Max Odgaard (Indiana United), Ryan Peterson (Pacesetter), Greg Enstone (London City FC), Amoh Kwaku (Golden Boys Soccer Club in Ghana)Skinny:
Abidor brings a versatility that extends from the midfield to the backline; Odgaard is a 6-foot-3 striker that can shoot the ball with both feet and is good in the air while Peterson should bring a hard-working mentality to the attacking midfield or forward position. The Flyers also have some international flavor, with Enstone coming by way of London and Kwaku joining from Ghana.
Matt Sheldon (Westside Metros Soccer Club), Brian Ford (Slammers FC), Eddie Manella (LAFC Chelsea), Blake Steele (Real So Cal), Matthew Wiesenfarth (California Development Academy).Skinny:
Ford and Steele will bring a defensive presence; Manella and Wiesenfarth are midfielders while Sheldon is a fast player who will be featured as either an outside back or outside midfielder.
