Wednesday was National Letter of Intent Day, a huge media event in the world of college football, but few men's and women's soccer programs even bothered to make announcements.

Of the teams to advance to the final 16 in 2006 NCAA Division I Men's Tournament, only California released its incoming class. Forward Davis Paul of three-time USYS national champion Arsenal FC heads the Cal class. Midfielder Servando Carrasco of the San Diego Surf has enrolled at Cal for the spring after spending last fall at a soccer academy in Argentina. Goalkeeper Jordan Bethke, midfielderA.J. Soaresand forward Andrew
Wiedeman, will make their debut with the Golden Bears next fall.

Among the Sweet 16 women's programs, Texas A&M announced a seven-player class that included former U.S. U-17 national team forward Whitney Hooperof Challenge SC. Coach G Guerrieri also signed two former Youth All-Americans: goalie Kelly Dyer, the Tennessee High School Player of the Year, and midfielder/forward Rachel Shipley from Plano, Texas. Other recruits include Sarah Pierson, Christy End, Inge Harding and Kat Armstrong.

NCAA Division I quarterfinalist Clemson announced the signing of three players who have enrolled this semester: Erin Moskos, Abby Lambert and Judea Davis.

Of the other men's programs to announce their incoming recruits, Akron announced the signing what should be one of the nation's top classes. The Zips have recruited four-semester U.S. U-17 resident Anthony Ampaipitakwong and Blair Gaven, who has been training this winter with the U.S. U-18 national team. Other recruits included Michael Nanchoff, son of George Nanchoff and nephew of Louie Nanchoff, both former U.S. internationals, and Congolese forward Steve Zakuani, whose older brother Gabby has played for Fulham in the English Premier League this season. Aaron Henkle of Indiana prep power Carmel rounds out Coach Caleb Porter's freshman class.

Like Porter at Akron, Coach Louis Bennettenters his second season at Marquette, which signed 12 players, including NSCAA High School All-American Anthony Colaizzi from Gurnee, Ill.

The rebuilding effort continues at the Washington women's program, whereLesle Gallimore had seven players sign letters of intent. Both forward Hannah Greig (Washington Class 4A Player of the Year from state champion Woodinville) and midfielder Jane Mitchell (San Diego Surf) are considered among the top women's prospects in the nation.
