Grambling State women’s soccer unveils 11-player recruiting class for 2023

GRAMBLING, Louisiana | The Grambling State University Women’s Soccer Program has announced its 2023 recruiting class, unveiling 11 talented new players from four different countries and five different states.

The class includes nine freshmen and two mid-year transfers. The GSU football team went 12-8-3 on the year, advancing to the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Tournament Championship game before falling to Jackson State in overtime , narrowly missing out on a spot in the NCAA Tournament.

“I’m excited about this recruiting class and what it means for our team going forward,” said head coach Justin Wagar. “We had a strong squad this year, and I think with a few key additions we can be even more competitive in the future. I can’t wait to see what Gram soccer can do in the future.
