[2011 WOMEN'S PREVIEW] Women are transferring in record numbers in the Division I ranks. Not just players who couldn't find playing time they were looking for but some big-time players. Here's a look at 10 transfers who could have a huge impact on the 2011 women's race ...

Hayley Brock (Maryland). Fourth in scoring as a freshman at Penn State with six goals and three assists. One of four transfers brought in by Maryland, ranked No. 5 in the Soccer America Preseason Top 25 rankings.

Kaila Cameli (Portland). The Pilots' first JC transfer set Phoenix College records for goals (22) and assists (11). Before her, Jessica McDonald was the big star at PC. All she did after leaving the Bears was win two national titles at North Carolina.

Vanessa Ibewuike (Texas). Made the All-Big Ten Freshman Team in 2009 when she led Purdue in assists with five. Didn't play in 2010. Former U.S. U-18 from Plano, Texas, immediately won over her Longhorn teammates with her magic tricks when she transferred this spring.

Morgan Kennedy (Oregon State). One of four freshman starters who left Southern Conference champion UNC Greensboro when Coach Eddie Radwanski took the women's job at Clemson. Should start on the backline for the Beavers, who are coming off a record-setting season (16 wins and second-place finish in the Pac-10, its highest finish in school history).

Taylor Knaack (Texas). Started 22 games for Notre Dame in 2009 when she scored six goals but she did not play in 2010. Played 27 games in 2008 after sitting out 2007 with an ACL injury. Has one year of eligibility left.

Natalia Ledezma (UC Irvine). Played 18 games and started all three NCAA Tournament games for UCLA as a freshman. Another transfer, CoCo Goodson, anchored the Anteater defense last season and was a key to UCI's record-setting season.

Laura McCalla (Purdue). Led UAB in scoring as a junior with 12 goals and six assists. Had six goals and one assist as a sophomore. Has one year of eligibility left.

Whitney Sharpe (Loyola Marymount). Perhaps the best player to ever come out of Iowa. Started her college career at UCLA, then moved to Texas Tech, where she made the All-Big 12 second team last year despite being in and out of the lineup with injuries.

Chelsea Stewart (UCLA). Part of nation's top recruiting class. Grew up in Colorado but plays for Canada. (Father Bill Stewart, a former NHL standout, is Canadian.) Sat out of two three seasons at Vanderbilt because of international commitments. Played for Canada at the 2011 Women's World Cup.

Taylor Vancil (Florida State). Former U.S. U-17 and U-20 keeper started her first two seasons at Louisville. Won the Golden Glove as the top keeper at the 2008 U-17 World Cup.
