Now that the preseason is out of the way, there is some clarity about how various Division I programs will be utilizing their freshmen classes for this fall. With that new information in hand, TopDrawerSoccer rearranges and reranks the 2016 Recruiting Classes.
Check out which programs made the Top 50 list below.
While Auston Trusty decided to bolt for the professional game, UNC still has a really strong class. Lindley and Pineda scored in the preseason.
Commitments: Nicholas Hinds (No. 20), Reggie Laryea (No. 37), Marcel Zajac (No. 116), Jesus Perez (No. 136), Alex Mapp, Jackson Crawford, Jonathan Lewis, Tor Saunders, Jackson Crawford, Jeremy Pollard
Emmanuel Sabbi signed a professional contract, which leaves this class and the Akron roster without the same punch in the attack.
Transfers: Jake Rozhansky (Virginia), Gordon Wild (USC Upstate(m))
Gordon Wild and Jake Rozhansky look like they are already fitting in during the preseason, which has the Terps already rolling prior to the opener against UCLA this week.
Washington head coach Jamie Clark is already singing the praises of Handwalla Bwana, as he compared the freshman to former Akron star Darlington Nagbe.
Transfer: Bay Kurtz (Liberty)
Weston McKennie is gone, which is a big blow to this class and moves the group down from No. 4 to No. 5.
