The incoming freshman class will add depth throughout the roster as the group includes three defenders, two forwards, one midfielder and a goalkeeper.

"This class provides talent in every position and with the additions of this group of student-athletes as well as the returning players I know we are poised for a great 2012 campaign," said Salmon.
