“We are extremely pleased to announce the initial group of our 2019 recruiting class,” Pulvers said. “First, these student-athletes represent our core values and fit into our team culture seamlessly.

Jacob Johnston Jacob Johnston
Midfielder | Temecula, California

About Johnston
“Jacob was our first verbal commitment back in August, and with it, we knew our class was off to a terrific start. He embodies the behavioral traits that are the essence of our team and culture, and in our opinion, he is one of the most overlooked talents in the region. From Temecula, Jacob played with Surf USSDA growing up, before returning home to his Hawks team and is currently on the highly successful LA Galaxy San Diego club team. He is a versatile player that will most likely slide into our midfield and be an immediate game changer. We look forward to helping Jacob unlock his vast potential.”

Jesus Mentado Jesus Mentado
Goalkeeper | San Pedro, California

About Mentado
“Jesus is a goalkeeper from Strikers USSDA that will compete right away with our three rising senior goalkeepers for the starting position. This San Pedro native has the distribution and composure playing out of the back necessary to take our possession game to the next level. We are very excited to get a goalkeeper of his quality, and we look forward to him being a staple of our program for years to come.”

Mauro Rafael Mauro Rafael
Midfielder | Long Beach, California

About Rafael
“Mauro is from Long Beach and Pateadores USSDA, and he is someone we believe has the potential to be a program-defining player. He is a central midfielder that likes to orchestrate the game with quarterback-like precision, awareness and decision making. Possessing a sky-high soccer IQ, Mauro sees the game multiple plays ahead and is committed to the possession-oriented game model that we want to play. It will be a joy watching Mauro develop and help us to our first CCAA championship.”

Kevin Reyes Kevin Reyes
Midfielder | San Diego, California

About Reyes
“Kevin comes to us after most recently competing with Nomads USSDA, where he was instrumental in their playoff run. A San Diego native, Kevin is a dynamic and clever attacking midfielder that has the ability to produce on the scoresheet as well as put in a defensive shift. We can’t wait to see him link back up with some of his past USSDA teammates Jorge Martinez, Raul Meza and Jose Valenzuela. Kevin fits effortlessly into our game model, and he is a major signing that signals the intent of our program going forward.”
