[UCLA WOMEN] UCLA's Jillian Ellis landed U.S. U-20 Jenna Richmond, considered the top recruit in the country, as well as three U.S. under-18 standouts Natalia Ledezma, Ariana Martinez and Kylie Facinelli, all products of Southern California.
“This is an outstanding class that not only features some high-caliber soccer players, but a good number of well-rounded athletes as well,” said Ellis, who is entering her 12th season as head coach at UCLA.  “Our focus every year is to land the best players in the country and I believe we achieved that goal yet again.  This coaching staff is eager to begin working with this talented group of individuals.”

Also signed for 2010: Chelsea Braun, Crystal Shaffie and Jalissa Freeman.
Headed to UCLA in 2011 is Richmond's U.S. U-20 teammate, Sam Mewis out of Massachusetts.
