Top youth camp prospects headed to UCLA
January 7th, 2010 8:45AM



[WOMEN'S RECRUITING] The rosters for the two U.S. women's national youth team camps in progress or about to open shortly are loaded with the country's top recruits. The big winner: UCLA with six players, including U-20 standouts Samantha Mewis from Massachusetts, who started on the 2008 U-17 national team, and Jenna Richmond from Virginia, committed to joining the Bruins the next two years.

Mewis and Richmond are among five high school seniors attending the U-20 camp being held in Gainesville, Fla., in preparation for the CONCACAF qualifying tournament later this month for the 2010 U-20 Women's World Cup. The U-20 coach is UCLA boss Jillian Ellis.

The Bruins' recruits include two high school juniors, Sarah Killion (Fort Wayne Fever) and Courtney Proctor (Slammers), who are headed to the under-18 camp that begins Sunday at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.

The only other teams with two or more players at the camps are North Carolina with three and Duke with two.

(An additional player was expected to be named to the U-18 camp at the HDC.)
