Sullivan heads stellar Stanford recruiting class
[COLLEGE WOMEN] U.S. under-20 women's national team star Andi Sullivan heads the recruiting class at Stanford, arguably the
best in the country. It also includes former U.S. U-17 Sarah Robinson, a star in soccer and track, and Jaye Boissiere,
both from local youth power MVLA Lightning.
Stanford will return nine of 11 starters, but this freshman class should help the Cardinal in its bid to return to the Women's College Cup,
which it missed out on last season for the first time since 2008.
Also in Coach Paul Ratcliffe's freshman class are Kyra Carusa (San Diego, Surf), Alison Jahansouz (SoCal Blues), Mariah Lee (Washington Premier FC) and
Zoe Pacalin (MVLA Lightning).
“We are very excited to sign seven outstanding student-athletes for our 2014 recruiting class,”
Ratcliffe said in a statement. “We are confident that they will be valuable contributors to the team and help us compete for another national championship.”
captained the USA during the Concacaf Under-20 Women's Championship in January despite being, at age 18, the youngest player on the roster. She played right back for the U-20s.
“Andi Sullivan is considered one of the top recruits in the country and brings a wealth of experience to Stanford," said Ratcliffe. "Andi will be a great leader and has the potential to make an
immediate impact as a defender or midfielder.”
Boissiere was among 24 at the U.S. U-18 team’s most recent camp. Robinson, who helped the USA to the 2012 Concacaf U-17
Women's title, excels at long-distance running. She was 11th at the Nike Cross Nationals.
