UIS Men's Soccer: Miech brings in diverse group of recruits

It’s a mix of recruits for University of Illinois Springfield men’s soccer coach Jesse Miech.

“We went after everything,” Miech said. “We have a few kids that come from some bigger clubs like Scott Gallagher and Chicago Magic. We also have some players that come from smaller clubs and smaller areas. We also have two junior college transfers.”

When practice begins in two weeks, Miech will match 11 recruits with nine players from last year’s squad that compiled an 0-14-2 overall record.

“We had to bring in all positions,” he said. “We have a good balance. We have good athletic kids."

Miech was featured in a July 29, 2012, article in the State Journal-Register.
