[NEW MEXICO MEN]
New Mexico men's program has added four area players in Carson Baldinger, Javier Gomez, Riley McGovern and San Diego State transfer Devon Sandoval.

Baldinger is a 6-1 forward and was the 2009 5A New Mexico Player of the Year and a High School All-American at la Cueva High School. Gomez is a 5-11 midfielder who was a two-time all-state selection at Rio Rancho High School. McGovern is a 6-2 defender and was the 4A New Mexico Player of the Year in 2009 at Farmington High School.
 
Sandoval is currently enrolled at UNM and is training with the team this winter. He transferred from San Diego State University after a strong freshman season in the fall of 2009 and will have three years of eligibility remaining at UNM. Sandoval was a three-time all-state selection at Eldorado High School before attending SDSU.
 
"If there are players from New Mexico who we feel can make our program better, we want them here," said Lobo head coach Jeremy Fishbein. "We definitely feel that we've done that with the four local players joining us in 2010."
 
The four remaining recruits joining the Lobo program in the fall are Taylor Hafling, Michael Kafari, Patrick Poblete and Giovanni Rollie.

Hafling is a 6-3 goalkeeper from Male High School in Louisville, Ky., who was a two-time Adidas ESP Camp participant. Kafari is a 6-1 forward who led his Centennial High team in Boise, Idaho, to a 5A State Championship in 2009. Poblete is a 6-4 goalkeeper who was a two-time Desert Valley Region Selection at Brophy College Prep in Scottsdale, Ariz. Rollie is a 5-7 midfielder/defender from Los Angeles who is a member of the U.S. U-18 pool.
