The 2016 college soccer season is kicking off, and many PDL players are set to compete this fall.
There are more than 100* players featured in the 2016 PDL Players to Watch list, including 11 players from the Atlantic Coast Conference, 10 players from the Big East Conference, nine players from the Big Ten Conference and 10 players from the Pac-12 Conference. The list also features 12 players competing in Division II of the NCAA, four players in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and three players in Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS).
The PDL Players to Watch list includes players named to and considered for the six 2016 PDL Top Prospects lists throughout the summer. More than 20 scouts across North America provided the PDL with valuable insight on players who were performing at the highest level within the league, possessed strong technical and tactical qualities and had the potential to play at the professional level. The Top Prospects list serves as a useful resource for professional clubs who are interested in identifying and scouting high-level performers.
