2024 Recruiting Class Connecticut College Men's Soccer

"FOR the FALL 2024, We are bringing in a small crop, but still consisting of a variety of positions . We believe these specific recruits will collectively have an immediate impact on the squad and will be able to make the team even more competitive. They all have really high ceilings because they are great footballers, but even better people. It has become increasingly more difficult to get recruited here at conn because of the national success we have had, but nonetheless It was very important to us as a staff that we made sure each signing was still a high-character person. That is the most important quality. Overall, This is a very exciting group who will blend well!" - Coach Burk
