Class of 2018 (High School Sophomores)

January 26, 2016 -  CSN's recruiting experts have analyzed the 2018 high school class in order to update their rankings of the top one-hundred sixty players in the class. The list of 2016 players and their rank order will adjusted periodically based on what transpires on the field of play and as information becomes available regarding verbal commitments.  Individuals who sign professional contracts will not be included in the rankings.  

The player rankings reflect a projection of the potential impact a player will have at the collegiate level.  While room for debate always exists in any type of ranking, and no one can totally predict what the future will hold, we are confident that the CSN recruiting experts player rankings will become a gold standard for information and analysis of recruits and in evaluating recruiting classes when the nation's top recruits announce where they will play soccer. 

The player rankings include the individual's club team, their home town, their position, and the college (if any) to which they have committed verbally.
