University of Tulsa men’s soccer team announces two additions to signing class

The University of Tulsa men’s soccer team added Noah Ekberg and Connor Gramke to the 2021 signing class, as announced today by head coach Tom McIntosh.

Ekberg, a 5-9 defender from Kalmar Kommun, Sweden, played club soccer for Kalmar FF for seven years.  He helped his club team claim six titles and earn recognition as the Best U19 team in Sweden in 2019.

“Noah is a technical and proactive player,” McIntosh said.  “I was impressed not only with his ability on the ball, but also how he ran off the ball.  In addition to his ability to play right back, he can also play right midfield and center midfield.  Lastly, Noah possesses excellent character, good communication skills and a high level of maturity.  He will be an excellent fit for our program and university.”

A 5-11 forward from Edwardsville, Ill., Gramke played club soccer for STLFC Academy for four years.  He netted 10 goals for the U19 team in 2020.

“Connor is a hard working central striker and we like his movement up front,” McIntosh said. “He gets himself into the danger areas where goals are scored and as a result led STLFC with seven goals in eight MLS Next games this fall.  Connor has good strength and hold up play.  He is a leader on his STLFC team and he will be an excellent addition to both our soccer program and university.”
