Making the list where University of Virginia F Makenzy Doniak and Virginia Tech MF/D Ashley Meier.
F Makenzy Doniak, Virginia
Seven starters are returning for Virginia, and the addition of an explosive player like Doniak is going to help the program maintain its high level. The California native is on the fringe of the U20 WNT roster for the World Cup, and if she doesn’t make it, there’s little doubt Doniak will be one of the best newcomers in the college game this fall.
Her ability to change games with her speed and finishing ability is matched by few, and she’s going to be a handful for ACC defenses.
MF/D Ashley Meier, Virginia Tech
Landing a player of Meier’s caliber was a huge boost for Virginia Tech, who compiled a winning record but couldn’t climb high in the competitive ACC. Meier is a versatile player capable of playing as a center back or as a central midfielder, bringing quality to that part of the field.
She’s another player in this group on the bubble for the U20 Women’s World Cup team, which would certainly leave a void for Tech if she makes the team.
