It appears that foreign players have almost taken over college soccer.


I don't have any actual data, but even UVA seems to have has lots more foreigners than in years past especially 5 or 10 years ago. If I am right why has this happened? My only guess is that it is a talent chase and foreign is where the talented players are. It is kind of like college tennis.
