[WEST VIRGINIA MEN]
Julio Arjona, who spent three semesters in residency with the U.S. under-17 national team, has enrolled at West Virginia, where he joins former Clarksburg (Md.) High School teammate Peabo Doue.

"Julio is a tremendous addition to our program," Coach Marlon LeBlanc said. "He had a decorated prep career and was one of the top recruits in the country this year. His international experience with the US U-17 National Team coupled with his early arrival at WVU will no doubt have him well prepared to have a major impact in his freshman season. We are delighted that he has chosen to be a Mountaineer."

Arjona and Doue both also played for D.C. United's academy team.

Zach Claudio (Charleston, W.Va.), Brooks Nucilli (Fairmont, W.Va.), Travis Ives (Bridgewater, N.J.), Jay Williams (Raleigh, N.C.), Allan Flott (Arlington, Va.) and junior college transfers, Cameroonian brothers Franck Tayou and Uzi Tayou (Garden City Community College), join Arjona, who enrolled at WVU in January.

"This is a group of players that have had great experiences with our youth national teams and have played for some of the finest youth clubs this country has to offer," added LeBlanc. "We have also added some much needed experience, size and age to our squad with the addition of two junior college transfers. I really like this recruiting class and believe that from top to bottom, it is one of the best in the country."
