Wake Forest men’s soccer adds goalkeeper Andreu Cases Mundet
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Via Wake Forest University) – Wake Forest men’s head soccer coach Bobby Muuss announced Tuesday the addition of Andreu Cases Mundet, a goalkeeper from Barcelona, Spain, to the 2016 recruiting class.
Cases Mundet adds more depth to the goalkeeping position for the Demon Deacons, who now have returning redshirt-senior captain Alec Ferrell and redshirt junior Grant Bishop to go with fellow incoming freshman keeper Kyle Barkett.
“Andreu comes to Wake Forest with seven years of experience at one of the best soccer clubs in the world at the young age of 19,” Muuss said. “He is not just a very talented goalkeeper, he is a true soccer player. His ability to play with his feet and his soccer intelligence will help him tremendously with his transition to the way we like to play and we’re excited to have him join us this season.”
A graduate of Escola Lleo XII in 2015, Cases Mundet has spent the last seven years playing for one of the most famous clubs in the world, Barcelona. Cases Mundet played this past year for Barca’s U19 team, which competed in the U19 UEFA Champions League. Additionally, Cases Mundet also trained and saw time with Barcelona B during the last year.
Cases Mundet joins an already deep class of nine incoming freshmen and one transfer.
