Different type of transfers than the ones you are used to seeing. Several student-athletes have decided to take their talents elsewhere for the rest of their college experience. Some of these transfers caught many off guard because of the importance they have had on the teams they are departing.

Kris Reaves (Wake Forest ->University of Portland): This one was a shocker because the FC Dallas Academy product was an important piece to a Demon Deacon side who won the ACC regular season title and was the overall Number 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Reaves can play as a right back or center back. He has solid tracking pace, good athleticism, and has improved his service into the area.  He still needs to polish placing his first touch forward and refine his dribbling to beat players with a clever move. He is a pro prospect, hopefully he does not get caught out in the wilderness of the Northwest.

Zach Knudson (NC State -> Georgetown): New York Red Bulls Academy player is joining fellow club mates, Chris Lema and Arun Basuljevic, at the Nation’s capital for his last two seasons. The midfielder led the Wolfpack in points (15) and goals (6) during the 2015 season. Zach has a low center of gravity, decent ball control with a slick dribble. He will need to continue to improve his decision-making, but the player is a talent. Knudson scored this spectacular over-head kick against Notre Dame last season.

Sergio Camargo (Coastal Carolina -> Syracuse): The Toronto FC Academy player is replacing MLS Superdraft pick, Julian Buescher has the key man for the Orangemen. In his three years at Coastal, Camargo scored 19 goals and recorded 15 assists. The 5’7 midfielder has a quick burst and is a clever dribbler. Intelligent player who puts himself in positions to score.

Jake Rozhansky (Virginia -> Maryland): The talented midfielder was a two-year letterman who was an important piece to their National Championship season in 2014. After two years in Charlottesville, he decided go closer to home for his remaining years of eligibility. Rozhansky has good ball control, has a good change of direction, and can play with both feet. His light frame is a slight concern as he has had several knocks over the years. The Bethesda-Olney Academy product can play anywhere across the midfield, his most comfortable position is probably in the number 10 role, but he can play the 6 or 8 also.
