Historic season attracts top commit

Published: January 25, 2012
When New Mexico's men's soccer team wrapped up its first undefeated regular season with a victory over UNLV last November, a pretty intrigued young prospect from Utah was there to witness it.

Nick Thiros, was making an unofficial visit, and watching the Lobos ascend to a new level left an impression on him.

“It showed that they are a great program and they know how to play the game,” Thiros said. “I enjoyed being down there.”

So much so that the La Roca Premier attacker gave his verbal commitment to the Lobos for the 2013 season.

Thiros, a regionally-ranked standout, joins Steve Manios who also committed to the Lobos for 2013. 

Their high profile season aside, New Mexico had already gained favor with Thiros for being one of the first programs to show strong interest in him. He preferred to stay in the West anyway, and also considered schools like Santa Clara, San Diego and San Diego State.

Thiros is a technically-strong player who has great vision and has served as his team’s captain so he brings leadership. He’s a good addition for a program that will likely attract a few more of them.
