[WAKE FOREST]D.C. United academy star Jalen Robinson, rated one of the top defenders in the Development Academy, and three players from the Baltimore Bays, Michael Gamble, Ricky Greensfelderand Andrew Harris, head one of the best recruiting classes in Wake Forest's program history. The seven recruits will join the Demon Deacons, who will not lose a single starter from last season’s team that reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

“We are very excited about this class,” said Coach Jay Vidovich. “They are a tremendously talented and special group. If they can adjust to the level of play and pace of the ACC, we think they will help bring us back to the top.”

Robinson, expected to compete for a starting job in the midfield or at center back, may be the most high-profile recruit in Wake Forest history. He recently attended the U-20 national team training camp in January.

Gamble is a two-time NSCAA All-American and is rated one of the top forwards in the senior class.

Harris is expected to challenge returning senior Michael Lischfor immediate playing time in goal. Both his parents were collegiate soccer players at Yale.

Greensfelder was a key midfielder on the Bays. His father, Rick, was a part of the University of Baltimore’s 1975 Division II national championship run.

The class also includes Thomas Haws, Philip Parker and Ryan Perry.

    Super man, because they are not good enough to play pro. Jalen is, but the bays kids can only play pro for the Baltimore Blast.... and only because the general manager is the president of the Bays!
