U.S. U-17 keeper Richey joins Huskies
by Paul Kennedy, February 5th, 2010 8:45AM



[WASHINGTON MEN] Spencer Richey, a backup goalie on the U.S. team that played at the 2009 Under-17 World Cup in Nigeria, has enrolled at Washington for the winter quarter. The Crossfire Premier product heads the Huskies' recruiting class that UW coach Dean Wurzberger called one of his best recruiting classes in years.

Other recruits: John Crenshaw (Marysville, Wash.), Quinn Grisham (Issaquah, Wash.), Brent Ham (Englewood, Colo.), Michael Harris (Shoreline, Wash.), Taylor Peay (Salt Lake City, Utah), Zachary Portillos (Aurora, Colo.)

"This 2010 recruiting class really hits the bull's eye in regards to meeting our needs for next fall's team. The addition of USA U-17 national team goalkeeper Spencer Richey to the six-member class that singed for us will surely go down as one of our best recruiting classes in years," Wurzberger said. "Two excellent players at the back [Peay and Harris], three quality midfield players [Portillos, Grisham and Ham] and one very promising player up front (Crenshaw) will help put our program back among the best in the West quickly. All of these players have the potential to make an immediate positive impact upon our program. We can't wait for them to join our team next August."
