MOST COMMENTED

Perennial No. 1 national boys prep program St. Benedict's has produced some of the nation's top college players.

After starring at the Newark, N.J., school, Tab Ramos (N.C. State), Claudio Reyna (Virginia) and Gregg Berhalter (North Carolina) all went on to have tremendous college careers and represent the USA at the World Cup. Now, the top Grey Bees are taking a different path -- foregoing college soccer and MLS for the European pro soccer.

U.S. U-20 Gabriel Ferrariand Vincenzo Bernardo headed for Italy after St. Benedict's. Ferrari is now with Sampdoria's first team, while Bernardo is at Napoli.

Colombian-born forward Jose Angulo is considered an even brighter prospect than Ferrari or Bernardo, and he has decided to pass on the college game -- his first choice was Connecticut -- to try his luck in Europe.

"At first I wanted to go to college and do the whole college thing and then go pro," Angulo told the Herald-News. "I started analyzing that and it didn't seem realistic to wait three or four more years and be 23 or 24 trying to get into the pros."

Angulo, who is in the process of getting his U.S. citizenship, has begun workouts with MLS's Red Bulls and will soon try out for clubs in Europe.
