By: UCLA Athletics

May 24, 2013

Los Angeles, Calif. - The UCLA men's soccer team has added two players to its 2013 squad, as junior transfer Aaron Simmons and freshman Brian Iloski will join the Bruins for the upcoming season. The two players will join a team that went 13-3-3 and won its second straight Pac-12 title last season and is welcoming the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation this fall.

Simmons is a defender from Mansfield, Tex. who has spent the last two years at SMU. He played in 41 games in two seasons at SMU, starting 40 of them and recording three goals and two assists in his career. As a freshman, he played 1,931 of a possible 1,950 minutes before playing every single minute for the Mustangs as a sophomore. Simmons has also been a consistent member of the U.S. U-18 National Team pool and was recently named one of the top 10 best defenders in college soccer by Top Drawer Soccer, a list that included junior Joe Sofia among those considered.

Prior to his time at SMU, Simmons was named the 2011 Texas Gatorade Player of the Year and was a 2010 ESPN Rise Texas All-State selection. He played his club soccer for the Dallas Texans and captained the U-18 and U-16 academy teams. During his senior year of high school, Simmons played on the only academy team to ever go undefeated in a 30 game regular season. He will have two years of eligibility remaining at UCLA.

Brian Iloski

Iloski, a native of Escondido, Calif., is a midfielder who played his club soccer for the LA Galaxy Youth Academy. Iloski also has seen time with the U.S. U-18 National Team, participating in three U.S. camps that included trips to France and Portugal. In addition, he was a two-year letterwinner in soccer at San Pasqual High School in Escondido, earning All-America honors and helping San Pasqual to a Regional Championship.

Last year, Iloski earned U.S. Soccer "Man of the Match" honors in the Academy All-Star game at the 2012 Development Academy Winter Showcase in Florida. He also was selected as one of the "Final 16" for the Nike Chance, a world training tour put together by Nike. Iloski was the only American selected for the Chance and made the cut of the final 16 from over 100,000 soccer players from 55 different countries. He spent five weeks training around the world with the Nike Academy, playing against the world's top-flight youth clubs, including Manchester United and Juventus.
