Sapling Snapshot: NLI Edition

Been a long, long while since I've written anything here (working at a DII athletic department in South Carolina has left me distanced from following the academy as much as I'd like).

Last Wednesday was National Signing Day and schools are starting to kick out press releases on soccer signings (football goes up day of). A lot of schools have yet to post releases, including the University of Portland, but with the school I work at shutdown for the second straight day due to snow - I've gone through all the DI soccer websites looking for NLI releases pertaining to the Portland Timbers Academy.

AKRON (3)
- Jesse Garcia-Aguilar (MF, Portland)
- Niko De Vera (D, Camas)
- Anthony Macchione (F, Camas)

GONZAGA (1)
- Ben White (D, Tigard)

STANFORD (2)
- Foster Langsdorf (MF, Vancouver)
- Sam Werner (MF, Bozeman, Mont.)

Random Thoughts: Not sure how I feel about no Oregon State signees as part of me would love to see representation at a local school... Wondering what Portland's signing class will look like... Lots and lots of Sounders Academy players signing NLI's last week... Didn't realize that OSU's freshmen class in 2013 represented three MLS Academies (two from PTFC, one from RSL and one from TFC)... Curious how many academy kids will wind up on the U23 side and how many players on that roster will be out of system (also, can't wait for the U23 roster to start being unveiled)...


Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
