College soccer is back.

After a short offseason on the back of the unusual spring season, a normal schedule is expected for the 2021 fall season.

The big teams are chasing a College Cup spot in San Jose, California this December. Which players could be crucial to getting them there? As is tradition, TopDrawerSoccer names its preseason awards, highlighting the players expected to make a big difference in the upcoming season. Several familiar faces return for the Postseason awards, taking advantage of the extra season of eligibility the NCAA announced in light of the pandemic.

Check out the three teams and a Freshman XI to watch this season.
