Well, maybe we can take a breath.
It’s been a busy five weeks for college and high school soccer players since the NCAA lifted the dead period on June 1. The university accepted players every day in June, and high school soccer teams and players fluctuated across the country to compete in camps. 7 to 7 and private workouts.
Dozens of players have announced their college plans, and several have declared their intentions on the busy July 4th weekend.
Much happened before the early signing period in December, and certainly nothing was decided until the student athletes signed the National Intent, but here we know who had a good month and who wasn’t. Let’s take a look.

Florida: Mike Nobel set the tone for the afterlife Midnight Madness and His Custom Slingshot Polaris Debut On June 1st, Seminole will build an outstanding class and add outstanding Stranahan LB. Omar Graham Junior And during the final week of June, a trio of four-star linemen outside the state. Florida may need significant improvements to maintain all its commitments from the 2020 three-win campaign, but Seminole’s momentum towards the beginning of the high school season cannot be ruled out.
UCF: Bounce House Weekend may be one of the most important recruitment events in UCF history when everything is said and done. The Knights have already earned some rewards from Gasmarzan’s massive referral event on the weekend of June 11th. Until March, Miami’s commitment to Chaminade Madonna de Jamal Johnson attended the Knights recruitment class on June 18. Carenist Thompson According to 247Sports’ overall ranking, we committed to UCF last week and became the 15th highest performing new employee in the program. UCF has added a commitment from Berkeley Prep LB TJ Bullard, son of WWE superstar Titus O’Neil. It keeps looking for some other influential players.
Coastal Carolina: Few out-of-state programs have been cleaned up as efficiently as Coastal Carolina this month. Chanticleers are riding the momentum of the best season in FBS history, finishing their 14th year 11 to 1 with the Associated Press’s Top 25 votes. Half of Coastal’s 14 commitments to date are from Sunshine State. In June, Vanguard ATH Elijah Hopkins and Cardinal Gibbons LB Tray Brown pledged verbally. Underrated Apopka LB Josiah Robinson joined the class and kicked off in July, while Chanticles plunged twice on Monday, landing Nease TE Grant Stevens and West Orange ATH Matthew McDoom.

Specialist: Florida is producing some elite stuff in the 2022 class, so let’s take some time to give some love to kickers and panthers. Piniella Park K Robert Gunn (The second-largest kicker in the country at 247Sports Composite) Orally committed to Clemson in June. Gulliver Prep K Wilbet Ridge has offers from Georgia Institute of Technology, LSU, Virginia and more.Sea Breeze Panther Mac Chiumento There are offers from Alabama and Florida. It is very difficult for a specialist to get a scholarship. This should show the talent of this class.
2022 class: Whatever happens this summer, this year’s senior class at least enjoyed a relatively normal hiring experience. The NCAA’s decision to end the dead period on June 1, which lasted more than a year for the COVID-19 pandemic, resulted in a major travel rush. Florida hosted a mega camp featuring more than 50 universities following the weekend. The new hires who had the offer were finally able to tour the stadium, waitrooms, campus and, most importantly, meet future coaches in person.

2022 class: That said, this year’s harvest is far from rosy. This pandemic has allowed the NCAA to qualify all current college athletes for one year. This means that the number of scholarships available can be much smaller. Cocoa head coach Ryan Schneider told USA TODAY Network last month that he had informed USA TODAY Network that there were only three seniors in high school in an FBS program. The other brought eight people. Most years, at least 20-25 athletes participate in signature classes. However, the stagnation of the roster, coupled with the transfer of facts, allows you to play immediately after exiting the portal, which can leave many children in the cold.
Miami: Given how impressive the 2021 class in the hurricane was, few would have expected Miami to make such a late start during this recruitment cycle. The hurricane has a total of three verbal promises since Buchholz WR Quanley withdrew last week. It’s possible that the player has given the cane coach staff a quiet verbal promise, but it’s hard to gain momentum when it’s quiet. Miami hasn’t made any verbal promises since hosting the Paradise Camp last week. In conclusion, this class can use an injection of talent and excitement.
Nebraska: The Huskers signed six high school students from Florida in 2020 — more than any other state. That number has dropped to 1 in the 2020-21 class. Looking to the next class, Nebraska’s recruitment from Florida will once again sit in one of the Olympia WR Victor Jones Jr. committed in April. Players who have Nebraska as finalists (such as Vero Beach CB James Mons III, whose uncle was all-American in Nebraska) are choosing other Big Ten programs. Minnesota had a great month in Florida in June. Penn State University and Michigan State University have landed an elite pass rusher over the past few days. Nebraska was expected to work in Florida with Scott Frost’s connection from the UCF era, but now it’s not.

FIU: The Golden Panthers now have as many commits as they won in 2020. zero. In reality, the Power 5 signature class tends to fill up faster than the Group of 5 class. But the FIU isn’t very happy with what’s going on so far.
