VCU men’s soccer solidifies 15-player recruiting class, earning top-25 ranking

RICHMOND, Va. – VCU Men’s Soccer head coach Dave Giffard announced a talented 15-player recruiting class to join the 2022 roster.

“As we looked to replace so many experienced players from last year’s team, it was important for us to add a large group with a ton of potential and quality,” Giffard said. “I feel confident that this class accomplishes that goal and in conjunction with the players we already had here in the program, keeps our talent level at the top end of the college game.”

VCU finished 2021 with a 9-7-2 record, including three wins over ranked teams. The Rams received votes in the United Soccer Coaches poll for 11 straight weeks, and reached as high as No. 12 in the poll earlier in the season. VCU’s 2022 schedule features nine opponents that played in the 2021 NCAA Tournament.

Giffard’s 2022 signing class garnered the No. 24 spot in Top Drawer Soccer’s latest national rankings.
