IU is getting a big time player. This is part of the fun of having a kid that plays a lot of soccer at the national level. My son's team has played them several times through the years of club ball in the National League. Albion CA is a machine within a very competitive U17 age group. They are 2 time national champs and I think are finialists one other time. It is a really fun team to watch. I think my son's team is 0-3-1 against Albion.

I think the rankings are very questionable at best. I just spent a weekend in Miami watching 2013 kids play from the top teams in the country and only 1 or 2 kids were mentioned in the top 100. I find it funny that there is no mention of any player from the National Champion Concorde Fire team. Ok there best player is a 2014 but still they are loaded. I have watched this team play for years and they are extremely good.

worse are when they try to rank college teams classes. they almost never account for foreign players, which are for many schools their top players coming. the u.s. kids are often the role players with unknown foreigners being the main guns. like st. john's for years
