[NORTH CAROLINA MEN] For the second year in a row, North Carolina has added a top transfer for Santa Clara. Last year it was Stephen McCarthy. This year, it's Jalil Anibaba, the West Coast Conference Freshman of the Year in 2007.

The Tar Heels, who will return eight starters from the team that reached the Men's College Cup for the second year in a row, signed eight new players. They will return their top six scorers also lost two starting defenders to the 2010 MLS Draft:Zach Loyd, chosen fifth overall by FC Dallas, and Jordan Graye, taken in the fourth round by D.C. United.
 
“I see some freshman being able to step in and make a contribution right away with the loss of our two defenders,” said Coach Elmar Bolowich. “We are getting three seniors back due to medical hardships, and I think we will have a very balanced team this season.”
 
Joining Anibaba are goalkeeper Brendan Moore (Roswell, Ga.), defenders Chibuzo Odenigwe (Richmond, Texas), Anton Sealey (Nassau, Bahamas) and defender David Walden (Richmond, Va.), midfielders Glen Long (Greensboro, N.C.) and Rob Lovejoy (Greensboro, N.C.) and forward Carlos McCrary (Roswell, Ga.).

Sealey, who played for Bahamas in 2008 Olympic qualifying, is the son of Bahamas Football Association president Anton Sealey.
