Typically, National Signing Day for the Colorado Buffaloes soccer team is celebrated while looking forward to a trip to the NCAA Tournament. This season the timing hasn’t changed, but the landscape of college soccer has.
Head coach Danny Sanchez would have liked to announce his four additions while juggling postseason preparations, but the Buffs still have a three-month wait until their expected start to the season in February.
The 2021 recruiting class spans the globe, consisting of two international newcomers, a west coast connection and CU’s first addition from Hawaii since 1996.
- Ellen Jones, 5-3, Midfielder, Glamorgan, UK (The Cathedral School Llandaff)
- Hannah Duguid, 5-3, Midfield/Forward, Calgary, Alberta (Burnaby Central Secondary School)
- Holly Hunter, 5-7, Defender, Temecula, Calif. (Great Oak H.S.)
- Phoenix Miranda, 5-9, Defender, Honolulu, Hawaii (Aiea H.S.)
“This is a fantastic recruiting class for us,” Sanchez exclaimed. “All four of these players have experience at the highest levels and are ready to compete immediately in the Pac-12. They are all great students that our Herbst Academic Center will love working with. We feel that each one brings qualities that can continue the trajectory of our talent base within our program. We can’t wait until they get here next summer”
