Similar to the West Virginia men's soccer team, WVU women's soccer coach Nikki Izzo-Brown went to New Jersey for her latest commit.
Livingston, N.J., native, Kate Schwindel signed a letter of intent to play for the Mountaineers Wednesday afternoon.
The 5-foot-6 forward is the ninth-best player from New Jersey, according to TopDrawerSoccer.com. She was also a 2010 ESPN Rise Fall All-American.
After an impressive senior season in which she scored 40 goals and added 20 assists, Schwindel was named the 2010 New Jersey Soccer Female Player of the Year. She led her team to the 2010 Group IV state finals as a senior, as well.
She is a four-year all-conference and all-county player and has scored 118 goals and had 68 assists in her high school career.
She played club soccer at Montclair United Thunderbolts and led that team to the 2009 state championship.
