A goalkeeper whose career numbers speak for themselves: the NCAA's all-time leader in shutouts and minutes played with the fifth-best goals-against-average ever.

What Scouts Say: "Makes big saves ... Solid, steady and level-headed ... He's a winner ... Good demeanor and work rate and very intelligent with his positioning ... Doesn't make many mistakes and doesn't make it easy on forwards to score ... Feet are not good enough ... Has improved in each of his years in college, but his feet remain a question. They're not quick, but his distribution has gotten better ... Range is good, but not great ... He's very good positionally, very sound and doesn't overplay things ... He hasn't had to face many shots and sometimes he's not involved in a game, but he has the ability to stay focused and make the big save ... Doesn't get tested, but to do what he's done in college socccer you have to have quality ... Good all-around 'keeper who deserves a shot."

College (Akron): Finished his career as the NCAA's all-time leader for shutouts (54) and minutes played (8,608) ...

He was the backbone of a 2010 unit that matched an NCAA record with 11 straight shutouts ... Broke school records for shutouts (17), fewest goals allowed (7), goals-against-average (0.28), minutes played (2,252) and wins (23) as a freshman in 2009 ... As a freshman he also broke Akron's single-season shutout record of 14, originally set in 2005 (Evan Bush) ... All-MAC first team in 2010 and 2012.
