The reigning Hermann Trophy winner and TopDrawerSoccer.com's Player of the Year in 2013, Virginia's Morgan Brian is the obvious choice at No. 1 in the Preseason Division I National Top 100.
Today, TDS releases its full women's top 100 player rankings covering the upcoming 2014 season. Freshmen are excluded from this ranking, but will be recognized during the midseason update with the freshmen top 100 player update.
Also, TopDrawerSoccer.com will be releasing a top 20 player ranking list for every conference, which will be revealed on Thursday. As with all college rankings, the staff at TopDrawerSoccer.com was wholly responsible for the top 100 women’s college soccer players list.
After Brian, the reigning national champions stock the top 10 player rankings. Center back Abby Dahlkemper, a finalist for the Hermann Trophy in 2013, is ranked at No. 2, in front of teammate and midfielder extraordinaire Sarah Killion. International players check in next, with Icelandic attacking midfielder Dagny Brynjarsdottir (Florida State) ranked fourth, and Canadian defender Kadeisha Buchanan (West Virginia).
