DURHAM, N.H. - University of New Hampshire head men's soccer coach Rob Thompson announced today the signing of two recruits to national letters-of-intent. Tyler Jackson (Amherst, N.H.) and Logan Lee (Racine, Wis.) have both committed to the UNH program for the 2001 season.
"I am extremely pleased that Tyler and Logan have chosen UNH. Both are exceptional student-athletes and should complement the large recruiting class we brought in last year," stated Thompson.
Jackson, a 5-11 midfielder, was a four-year member of the varsity soccer team at Souhegan High School which reached at least the quarterfinals of the Class I tournament in each of his four seasons. This season, Jackson was a All-State as well as an All-New England selection. Jackson also has club soccer experience with Seacoast United.
"Tyler should be an outstanding midfielder for our program. He can play either right or central midfield and is physically strong enough to compete for playing time his first year," stated Thompson.
Lee, a 6-2 forward, led Washington Park High in scoring in each of his four seasons and was named to the All-Conference squad all four years as well as being a two-time All-State selection. Lee is also a three-time recepient of the National Team G.P.A. award, and he was a member of the Mequon United FC club team that captured the 2000 Wisconsin state championship.
"Logan is an exceptional athlete who is dangerous in the air and very explosive," remarked Thompson. "He also has the ability to stretch opposing defenses with his pace."
