Oliver stays close to home

TAGS:  college men


[INDIANA] Andrew Oliver, who starred for the USA in its 2011 Concacaf Under-17 championship campaign before leaving U.S. Soccer's residency program, heads the group Coach Todd Yeagley has brought in to Indiana.

Oliver led the U.S. U-17s en route to the Concacaf title. After the tournament, he was invited to train with Liverpool.

The Indiana native grew up playing his club ball with Westside FC.

Other Hoosier signings: Richard Ballard, Derek Creviston, Cincinnati transfer Alex Hadley, Femi Hollinger-Janzen and Zach Martin.
“We are very excited about our incoming class,” Yeagley said. “Our specific positional needs have been met and we have players who are capable of making an immediate impact next fall. This group possesses the qualities that will continue to help us pursue championship success.”

    Go chase the money?? That's the advice you have for this young man. Ten to fifteen years from now when he has no degree what will he be doing to support himself? Andrew you did the right thing by going to college because professional sports is not going anywhere. If you do not pursue your degree now things will be rough later in life. You made the smart choice.
