The 2024 Class is quickly making verbal commitments and many players in the PrepSoccer National Rankings have already picked their college for the next level. Following the commitment of, who is in the national team picture and rehabbing from injury, to Clemson, there are only two unknown commitments from the players in the top 20 of the rankings heading into the final weeks of October. The recruitment for this class officially open in June so the race to land to land top talent is a sprint, not a marathon.
This past week, there were a number of verbal commitments from the class of 2024. Here is a scouting report on the seven most important verbal commitments from the class of 2024 last week.
There is every reason in the world to believe thatwill return to the level she displayed earlier this year once she is given the green light to hit the field. She is an outside back for the Youth National Team and very likely would have been on this U17 World Cup team if timing was on her side. Fortunately for Clemson, the timing worked out that she spent more focus on picking her next school. She found a great fit in Clemson, which has done a good job showcasing to players that playing immediately in the ACC is quite alluring especially for a style of play that will utilize the outside backs. Clemson’s coaching staff has definitely gone after the top prospects in recent classes. The Tigers have the commitment from the No. 11 recruit in the class of 2023, , as well as Corcione, 2024. They will be making noise in the ACC for the foreseeable future.
UCLA’s new coaching staff has covered all corners of the country with recruits for the 2024 class.is the latest verbal commitment for the Bruins. The center forward from New York is a different prospect than what the Bruins currently have on the roster. She can play with her back to the goal, does well in combination play, and has the pace to get behind the defense. She was an ECNL All-American for the 2021/2022 season. It’s hard to earning playing time at UCLA as a freshman, but Winn has the qualities that could see her on the field early on in her career in Westwood.
I love this addition for William and Mary. It feels like you just pencilin at left back for the next four years (starting in 2024) and you’re set. That is the type of addition that moves the needle for a program. She was an ECNL All-Conference Second Team honoree in 2021. She has the ability to lockdown the best wingers in the country. She is a competitive outside back who can offer something getting forward too.
With the coaching change at Florida State, there were some questions about the program’s future. A 10-1-2 record this season and the verbal commitment fromshould have new head coach Brian Pensky feeling pretty good heading into the final weeks of the NCAA regular season. Hudson is a gem from the class of 2024. Watching Hudson’s highlight reel at the high school level feels unfair at times. She moves with grace and power. She glides around defenders and then smashes the ball into the net with such fury that it feels like the piano turned into a drum set. Hudson’s a special talent with incredible potential. She is the first verbal commitment to the 2024 class for Florida State in our database, and it’s easy to see why she was a priority.
The Nebraska Girls Soccer State Player of the Year is heading across state lines to Kansas State for her college career. It’s an incredible win for the Wildcats. Marshall was a dominant force on the field during her sophomore campaign. She is the type of forward who defenders will ask for an early sub against because she is a handful. She is technically sound and does well shielding the ball. When she faces goal, it’s game over as the ball is ending up in the back of the net. Kansas State has a center forward to build around for this class.
Alabama found a goalkeeper for the 2024 class in the Pacific Northwest. The SEC program is picking up a player with terrific potential. Munguia is an athletic goalkeeper who has a fearless approach to the positon. She will throw her body in the way to help her team win. She does well on high shots on crosses as she has a great wingspan with strong hands. She is the fourth verbal commitment to the 2024 Alabama class.
Washington continues to put together a really strong class in 2024. Morton is the latest addition. She is a midfielder, likely a No. 8 or No. 6 at the next level. She has some attacking qualities to her game that suggest she could be a No. 10 as well, but I believe she’s at her best in a No. 8 role. She is great at her change of pace and getting past defenders with a quick first step. She is decisive on the field and makes good, quick decisions on the ball. Morton should do well with the increase in speed of play as she is a technical player with a good first touch.
