So I'm looking around the landscape of college soccer (w) and trying to project the 2019 CC. Here's what I've got so far. Interested in your opinion. FSU Key losses Natalia Kuikka (AA Key player) Megan Connolly (key sub), Anna Patten (key sub swiss army knife player for us transferred to USCe), Dallas Dorosy (dynamite off the bench), Kaycie Tillman (starting MF), Olivia Bergau (solid sub). Newcomers Expect Nesbeth (Bahamas) and Nighswonger along with Madril (injury year) to make impacts. Will Kristina Lynch be back from ACL at full speed? My take. 1st in ACC and strong chance for run to CC. Stanford lost a ton of talent. Cook, DiBiasi, Xiao, McGrady, Davidson and Jahansouz. That's a lot of talent to make up for even with Smith and a good class coming in. My take is Stanford takes a slight step backwards. 2nd or 3rd in PAC, but will push for a CC run (at least elite 8) UCLA Only loses Hallie Mace and Julie Hernandez if my roster check is accurate and no underclassmen leave. Good recruiting class. My take is UCLA will be a huge threat and my favorite to win PAC 12. CC run. USC Loses a good bit of talent headlined by Ally Prissock and Leah Pruitt. Also lose Jessie Holmes, Hailey Hite and Megan McCashland. The first 2 hurt. That said they have a top ranked class coming in. I'd say USC was odds on 2nd in PAC 12 and a threat for CC. Penn State Amanda Dennis GK, Ellie Jean, Kaleigh Riehl, Kristin Schnurr among key losses. Top ranked recruiting class plus added Sam Coffey via Transfer. In order for them to challenge CC, they will need Coffey and the 'croot class to really pan out. My take. Penn State to go Elite 8 with outside shot of CC. UNC lost some key talent, but have a lot coming back. Lost Julia Ashley, Dorian Bailey, Annie Kingman and Alex Kimball. Think I read where Jessie Scarpa may be granted another year. If so, that helps. They always play a ton of people, so experienced bodies will not be a problem. Another very good recruiting class. I think they will have a hard time replacing Ashley. My take. UNC will start out slow, finish 2nd in ACC and challenge for Elite 8 and a possibility of another CC run. UVA in honor of 007. Losses Betsy Brandon (key backup), Briana Westrup (sub), Ayan Adu (sub), Montana Sutton (st MF). No real key losses. 2 top 25 recruits should bolster them. My take. Second or Third in ACC and return to Elite 8 with outside shot at CC run. Georgetown Key losses Schectmann stud GK, Carusa, Farrell, The latter two were their goal scorers. Hard to imagine a return to Elite 8 or CC. Early CC picks FSU, UCLA, USC and ???? Stanford, UNC, UVA, PSU. I only feel strongly about FSU and UCLA quite frankly. What say you? Who else would you throw in the mix?
