Western Michigan Men’s Soccer Adds Six for 2019 Season

The Western Michigan Men’s Soccer team and head coach Chad Wiseman announced the addition of six future Broncos on January 16.

Brennan Creek, Daryl Newell, Dylan Sing, Jordan Walker, Max Keenan and Charlie Sharp have made commitments to WMU and will be eligible to compete for the Brown and Gold in 2019.

“I believe this is the most talented class we have ever recruited,” said Wiseman. “I also believe it is one of the best classes in the country. These six players are winners, not only on the field but in the classroom and in the community. They are ready to make an immediate impact in the college game.”

Newell, a Chicago, IL native joins Western Michigan from Walcott High School, and USSDA FC United club soccer. Newell was a two-year starter for USSDA FC United, while leading FC Chicago to the NPL Finals as the NSIL league champions in 2017. In USSDA competition, he accumulated 26 points with 10 goals and six assists.

Coach Wiseman remarked, “Daryl brings a skill set to our program that is different than any we’ve ever had. We’ve had players with great size and others with great speed and Daryl rolls both of those into one and is a very exciting player to watch. He stands 6’4” and is silky smooth on the ball. He is an attack-minded winger that enjoys running at players and is very dangerous one-v-one. For his size, he is also quite technical with a good first touch and ball striking ability. His athleticism alone will allow him to impact college soccer matches. Daryl is the type of player that draws a lot of attention and can find many different ways to put his stamp on a game. We are looking forward to what he can accomplish in a Bronco uniform.”
