UCLA has SoccerBuzz's 2007 top women's soccer recruiting class in its annual rankings, ahead of Florida State, North Carolina, Boston College and California.

1. UCLA. Lauren Barnes and Kylie Wright head the Bruins' 10-player class. The last two years, UCLA's recruiting class was No. 2 in the country.

2. FLORIDA STATE. U-17 midfielder Amanda Da Costa and U-17 forward Marissa Kazbour lead the Noles' incoming freshmen. The Noles are landed transfers Lauren Switzer from UCLA and Erika Sutton from San Diego State.

3. NORTH CAROLINA. Mississippi product Rachel Givan and Meghan Klingenberg out of Western Pennsylvania give the Heels another big-time class. Last year's freshman class produced seven starters on its national championship team.

4. BOSTON COLLEGE. The Eagles landed four of SoccerBuzz's top 25 players, including No. 1 recruit Hannah Cerrone.

5. CALIFORNIA. Before quitting as Cal coach, Kevin Boyd had brought in a stellar class of Californians, led by Jorden Kussman and Megan Jesolva.
