Men's Soccer Team Signs Three New Recruits
By: UCLA Athletics

February 24, 1999

LOS ANGELES - UCLA head coach Sigi Schmid's men's soccer team signed three top players during the national letter of intent signing period, including two members of the U.S. Under-18 National Team.

The Bruins signed U.S. Under-18 National Team members Kyle Julian (forward/ Del Campo HS, Carmichael, CA) and Scot Thompson (defender/Trabuco Hills HS, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA), as well as NSCAA All-West Region selection Jimmy Frazelle (midfielder/Bella Vista HS, Folsom, CA).

Julian, a 5-11 left-footed forward, earned NSCAA All-American honors at Del Campo HS in 1997. He was a member of the U.S. 81s National Team from 1996-98 but missed this season with a torn ACL.

Thompson, a 6-0 defender, plays with the U.S. Under-18 team and has led his Trabuco Hills HS team into the CIF quarterfinals this week, just a year after taking his school to its first ever playoff appearance. Thompson is also a star on the track and field team, where he was a 1998 All-Orange County selection and the league champion in the 1600m relay and 400m.

Frazelle, a 5-10 midfielder, was a four-year starter at Bella Vista HS who earned all-league honors three times and NSCAA All-West Region honors in 1998. He is a member of the U.S. Regional Team and plays club soccer with Julian on the San Juan Arsenal, the 1998 national runner-up.

Said Schmid about next year's freshman class, "I am excited about all three recruits. Kyle is a left-footed player in the mold of an Eddie Lewis. Scot Thompson is a central defender with tremendous athleticism, and Jimmy Frazelle is a midfielder who loves to play and is technically very good. I expect them all to play a role on next year's team. Playing time will be difficult to get because of the amount of players returning (UCLA returns nine starters), but all three should make an impact."
