2005 Top Prospect Watch

StudentSportsSoccer.com provides a yearly position-by-position player ranking for high school prospects. Below is the current rankings for the Class of 2005 girls with their college choices in parentheses.

2005 Top 10 Overall Girls Prospects
1. F Kara Lang, Canadian national team (UCLA) - This Canadian star who made her full national team debut at age 15 vaulted to No. 1 in this recruiting class when he publicly committed to UCLA. Capable of playing anywhere on the field, she projects as a midfielder/foward for UCLA. Has scored 21 goals for Canada's national team, including its only tally in a 2-1 loss to Sweden in the 203 Women's World Cup semifinals.
2. F Amy Rodriguez, Laguna Hills Eclipse, CA (USC) - Known as A-Rod in soccer circles, this heavy hitter uses her foot instead of a baseball bat. Rodriguez started five of six matches for the U.S. U-19 women's team that placed third in the recent world championships. She scored two goals and had two assists.
3. D Nicole Krzysik, World Class, NJ, (Virginia) - Went into the school year bidding to be the nation's No.1 recruit, but now might find herself no.2 among defenders with quick-rising Meagan Holmes. Krzysik has been a national youth team fixture since age 16 and has one full international appearance. She started in the U.S. U-19 World Championship qualifiers, but saw limited action in the championships.
4. D Meagan Holmes, Bethesda Excel, MD, (USC) - Incredibly athletic, Holmes quickly emerged as one of the nation's elite players. She started the first five matches for the U.S. U-19 World Championship team until taking a break in the consolation match. Her late collegiate switch from Santa Clara to Southern Cal caught a lot of soccer enthusiasts by surprise.
5. F Jessiva Rostedt, Internationals, OH, (Virginia) - Rostedt had a hot foot at the U-19 World Championships, scoring twice in the team's 4-1 victory over Russia and netted the only goal in a 1-0 victory over Spain. Virginia insiders feel that Rostedt will make an immediate impact in the ACC.
6. M Yael Averbuch, World Class, NJ, (North Carolina) - Averbuch was the nation's most sought-after midfielder coming out in the Class of 2005. At the U-19 World Championships, she saw limited action, starting only one game.
7. D Kasey Moore, Laguna Hills Eclipse, CA, (Texas) - Moore has played on the U-17 national team, but did not get the call to the U-19 World Championships. She has helped her club to a No. 3 national ranking and stars on the high school level. Also a Parade All-America.
8. F Aysha Jamani, Canada U-19s, (Nebraska) - Nebraska's link to Canada through coach John Walker is well known. Walker lured this rising star and scoring machine to Nebraska for next fall. On the U-19 international level, she has 11 goals in 14 appearances and in 10 full national team appearances, she has scored seven times.
9. M Hayley Siegel, Bethesda Excel, MD, (Santa Clara) - Siegel is smooth and commanding in the midfield. An excellent athlete, she's the star of Santa Clara's class after her club teammate, Meagan Holmes, opted to switch commitments.
10. GK Kelsey Davis, So Cal United, CA, (UCLA) - Davis is the nation's top senior keeper and spent the summer on the U-19 World Championship team as a backup to UNC standout Ashlyn Harris.
