Goalkeeper Chris Seitz, a 2006 Soccer America Men's MVP, and Maurice Edu, a 2006 first-team NSCAA All-America midfielder, will forego their remaining eligibility at Maryland to pursue pro opportunities.

The 6-foot-4 Seitz, who is currently training with the U.S. U-20 national team, is considered one of the top goalie prospects to come along in recent years. Seitz finished his Maryland career with a career goals-against average of 0.77, the best ever by a Terp keeper.

"He has all of the tools to become a great goalkeeper and a fixture with the U.S. national team," said Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski.

Edu, one of college soccer's top defensive midfielders, finished his three-year career with 10 goals and 11 assists.

"Maurice Edu is an extremely special young man," said Cirovski. "The level of interest in his ability from both Major League Soccer and European teams has become extremely intense."

Both Seitz and Edu are Californians and started on Maryland's 2005 national championship team.
