UCSB adds Barrera and Dominguez
February 8th, 2008 9AM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

UC Santa Barbara moved quickly to replace attacking midfielders Eric Avila and Ciaran O'Brien, who left early to sign with MLS, when it signed Danny Barrera and Bryan Dominguez to national letters of intent.

Barrera was ranked No. 1 on risemag.com's ranking of 2008 boys recruits. He spent time in the U-17 residency program and has played for the U.S. U-18 national team. He attends Westlake High School, the same school that produced Eric Wynalda and Cobi Jones, but is skipping his senior year of high school soccer and plays for DMS11.

A gifted player with the ball much like Avila, he has been recognized as a skilled passer and can also run at the forward position.

Dominguez is the first U.S. national team player to come to UCSB from outside of California. Dominguez, who was born in Atlanta to Colombian immigrants, was one of just three players born in 1991 to join the U.S. U-17 residency program in 2006. He played for the USA at last year's Under-17 World Cup in South Korea.

Like O'Brien, Dominguez is a very quick and skilled attacking center midfielder.
