Monmouth University men’s soccer program unveils 9-player signing class

WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ – Monmouth University men’s soccer head coach Robert McCourt has announced the addition of nine student-athletes, who will join the team ahead of the 2021 fall semester.

“We are very excited to announce this class,” said McCourt. “Recruiting during COVID-19 has been challenging for everyone in college athletics, but we feel that we are bringing in a very strong class. Each player has had high-caliber experiences prior to joining our program. In addition, we return all but one player from our spring season. The incoming recruits combined with our returners gives us a solid starting point for the 2021 season. We can’t wait to get started.”
