Today we unveil our Top 100 Freshmen list for men’s college soccer.
The effort involves looking at the performances of players on more than 300 Division One men’s soccer teams and assessing conference level of competition, playing time and other statistical data that might affect such an evaluation, depending on the position played.
It is very hard to boil a list such as this down to 100 players.
Choosing a number one is pretty tough too. We finally decided on UC Santa Barbara forward Ema Boateng, followed by Georgetown’s Brandon Allen, Akron’s Dillon Serna, Wake Forest’s Jalen Robinson and Marquette’s Axel Sjoberg.
The list includes redshirt freshmen.
We will update each of these lists at the end of the season.
