Patrick Mullins Heads Top Drawer Soccer's Pre-Season Top 100

Maryland's reigning Hermann Trophy winner is named the best player in the country by Top Drawer Soccer.

Top Drawer Soccer today published its list of the top one hundred soccer players in the NCAA and in an announcement that should surprise no one, Maryland senior midfielder Patrick Mullins topped the list at number one. After a stellar 2012 season in which he scored 17 goals and added 10 assists, led the Terps to a Final Four appearance and, oh yeah, won the MAC Hermann Trophy - soccer's equivalent of the Heisman - it seems only natural that Mullins would be at the head of the class.

It should also come as no surprise that pre-season number 2 Maryland is well represented throughout with Schillo Tshuma (sophomore midfield / forward) coming in at number 23, Mikey Ambrose (sophomore defense) landing at 37, Sunny Jane (senior forward) at 62, and Dan Metzger (junior midfield) rounding out the Terps representation at number 90.

If you're wondering about how the two leagues fared, the ACC and B1G dominated the top ten holding six spots between the two conferences. UNC and Duke had players at four and six respectively while Indiana, Northwestern and Michigan rounded out the first ten. The ACC has a total of nineteen players on the list and the Big Ten has fourteen. Put Maryland's 5 in the B1G and the count is precisely reversed.

On the women's side, the Terps placed two players in the top one hundred. Senior forward Hayley Brock was the top ranked Terrapin at number seventy. The only other Maryland representative on the list was sophomore midfielder Ashley Spivey. In terms of league competition, it's surprisingly no contest. The ACC has a total of twenty nine players on the list including four in the top ten and ten of the top twenty-five. The B1G placed eleven players in the top one hundred with two in the top ten and four in the top twenty-five.
