Lincoln – The Nebraska soccer team announced the addition of 12 student-athletes from eight U.S. states and one Canadian province to comprise the 2014 recruiting class on Wednesday morning. The commits consist of one in-state recruit, along with four from Illinois as well as one each from California, Iowa, Kansas, New Mexico, Minnesota, Oregon and across the border in British Columbia.

The Huskers are coming off a memorable 2013 season where NU claimed both the regular-season and tournament titles for the fourth time in school history and first since 2000. The Scarlet and Cream amassed a 19-4-1 record while going 10-1 in the conference and qualified for its first NCAA Tournament appearance in eight years.

Head Coach John Walker and his staff welcome back a young but experienced group of Huskers in 2014 with postseason play on their résumés. Despite losing six senior starters, including two members selected by the Houston Dash, NU returns starting forwards Jaycie Johnson and Mayme Conroy who combined to produce more than half of the Huskers’ goals last fall.
