Seems like a good way to start this upcoming season's thread. Here's the first half of an article about his transfer.

This was his freshman year, and he was named to the Patriot League third team. He had 7 goals and 2 assists in 17 games; their next leading scorer had 2 goals (they finished 3-10-4).

He was invited to the tryout camp for the U20 US National Team this winter but didn't make the 20-man roster for the final traning camp this past month.

Should be a nice addition to what looks like a strong incoming class.

Brief thoughts from last night: Possession was about 60/40 in favor of SLU.  Denver had a few moments of decent possession in our half, moving the ball left to right but did not make much out

Brief random comments from the game: Starters were (back to front):  Schulte Keller, Niece, Wilkinson Schieffer   Huels, Boyce, Novaes Klein, Brunch (sp), Viox Wi

Patriot League Third team. Wow.

I concur.  This is a very solid, competitive class that Kalish is bringing in.  Good mix of transfers, STL kids,  talent , potential immediate impact on the field and high level of experience, including national team experience.  I also like the fact that we are still competing with some top soccer schools as you can see from the list of other schools the recruits were looking at.  It doesn't mean they were offered by those schools but many of the kids were aiming for top tier programs.

Thanks for the link. Collegesoccernews  used to be a weekly go to site for me to see a national perspective on the Bills. However, lately there has rarely been a mention. Hope we are getting back to the level of a team that is consistently on the national radar

Brian Johnson, 2020 Midfielder, trains with the Houston Dynamo Academy, attends Strake Jesuit, verbally committed to SLU over the weekend

I saw that earlier today on twitter.  Is he related to the Brian Johnson that used to coach youth national teams?

I’m not sure. The older version of Brian “BJ”Johnson was a former MLS-er out of Fresno St. Assisted at West Virginia briefly. Coached about 5 years in U.S. National team youth system, most notably head coach 14’s as well as scouting various age groups. For the past several years he has been Youth Technical Director with the Indiana Fire

.....The SLU commit Brian “BJ” Johnson is a long time Houston Dynamo Academy player, for many years.....cerebral, high motor, vocal, defensive midfielder organizer ball winner type of player.
