I think a lot of them signed today. Many tweeted. But because of the snow they will probably put more out there when their schools have their day.

UC list from the Website. 7 from Ohio four local Cincinnati girls:

The signing class includes local products Emi Carlo (Cincinnati, Ohio / Cincinnati Development Academy / Lebanon HS), Kiley Keehan (Cincinnati, Ohio / Cincinnati Development Academy / Walnut Hills HS), Madison Lindsay (Lebanon, Ohio / Cincinnati Development Academy Premier / Lebanon HS) and Annie Metzger (Mason, Ohio / Cincinnati Development Academy Premier / Mason HS) and three more players from the state of Ohio, including Vanessa DiNardo (Strongsville, Ohio / Cleveland FC / Strongsville HS), Camryn Hartman (Bay Village, Ohio / Cleveland United / Magnificat HS) and Ally Sidloski (Strongsville, Ohio / Cleveland FC / Strongsville HS). Additionally, the class will bring in two players from outside of Ohio, including Alli Pestaina from Brimfield, Mass. (Boston Breakers Development Academy / Worcester Academy) and Brandi Thomsen from Brookfield, Wis. (Elmbrook United / Brookfield Central HS). When the freshman join the program this fall, they will also join newcomer Sydney Kilgore (Oak Hills HS), a local product who recently transferred into the program after playing two seasons at Indiana.

Yep I think you're reading it correctly. Not sure what they lost.

First of all, congratulations to the girls listed above, you should be proud of your achievements.

I don't mean for this to be a knock on any college or player, but I wonder about the emphasis we put on playing in college.

These girls should be picking a college that can give them the education they want, offer the major they desire, and provide the experience of a lifetime before they enter adulthood.

I hope none are picking the college because of the promise some coach makes to them, or so that some dad can brag about it on the Yappi board.

College is a time to reinvent yourself, find yourself, experience new things, grow as a person, prepare for a career, enlighten yourself intellectually, etc. If all of your goals revolve around the soccer field I worry that these girls will be missing something and regret it later in life.

Its OK not to play in college.

Some of these schools listed are not what I would call highly rated universities (please, don't be offended). Some are the right fit. But given the chance to play at some college that is no bigger than a HS or go to Miami U. and not play, I would hope the girls are making the right decision. I admit, some small schools are excellent fit and Miami is not always the best fit, so I get that. Not that Miami is the be all end all of colleges, substitute any well regarded college for Miami. And I get that there are many great small colleges, so please don't bicker over my examples.

This board seems to have a warped opinion of playing in college. There are many college programs that could not beat a good HS team. As I have said before, many great players choose the option to give up soccer and never look back.

You seem to assume players and parents only chose based on soccer. I doubt that is true. While a few may the majority don't. Who are we to second guess their decision or say a school is not the right fit for them or anyone?

It's also OKAY to pick a college for a sport. Many kids change majors throughout college and picking a college based on something they really enjoy can make things work out.

Kids (and parents) can go into a program/major with an inflated sense of what it actually is in reality. Then, they struggle figuring out life "after" they change majors. Sports can help make life easier, family away from family, mentors built right in, etc.

There's no one way to pick a college, for sport, for education, or a mix of both. Good for those individuals in picking and how they pick. There's no wrong decision, the player and family will learn either way.

Maybe that is true. But I wonder if you ask the players about why they chose that school would they mention the strength of the school's major they prefer, or that the academic reputation was good, or some other reason that many kids choose colleges or would they mention some soccer related reason. I don't know, just wondering.

True. I actually picked my college caused I loved the campus, and I am not sure that is a good reason. My point is the overemphasis that this board puts on kids playing in college, as if that is the ultimate goal of every soccer player out there. It isn't, and it shouldn't be.

Playing in college can be a great experience and provide many benefits. I am not against it. I just know too many players who went to a place that was not the right fit for them and ended up regretting it or transferring. I also know many elite players that chose not to play and it was the right decision for them. Let's just keep things in perspective.....

My Daughter chose her school for their Nursing Program and location from the start. She played in the NCAA tourney all four years and in May she will graduate as a Nurse and already has a job lined up at a local Hospital! Her school decision was based on her major, location, soccer program/coach. I think she did alright!

This is true these days for a lot of students even if they dont play sports. Not sure you its any different than those that do.

Your premise that a girl that picks a small school is only doing it because of soccer is flawed. Not all big schools are strong academic institutions. Miami is, but others are not. More important, some small schools rank among the best in the country. Do some research on the schoolís listed. Some are top academic institutions, and their soccer programs are some of the best in the country.....
