2. RECRUITING: Sleeper joins U-18 quartet at UVa


ACC power Virginia confirmed the signing of what is one of the top men's recruiting classes for 2007.

Coach George Gelnovatch has brought in four players with experience on the U.S. U-18 national team: T.J. Cyrus (Virginia Rush), Colin Given (VardarStars, Mich.), Danny Louisignau (Baltimore Bays out of Wilmington, Del.) and Jimmy Simpson (PWSI Courage, Va.).

Gelnovatch is high on his fifth recruit, Korean-born midfielder Jason Kim (Irvine, Calif.), who has played for the Region IV team but not the USA because he is not a U.S. citizen.

"Jason not being on a national team might put him a little under everyone's radar, but there are a lot of hard-core soccer aficionados who think he is one of the top prospects in the country," Gelnovatch said. "He is very athletic and possess great skills. We think he could be something really special."
