College soccer programs do not need much of an international recruiting budget, if any at all, to attract players from abroad, most of the time coaches receive "tips" from talent agencies across the globe that screen prospect players or "word of mouth" from former players or colleagues. With the advent of these agencies and the internet, there really is no need for a coach to travel overseas. When most foreign players reach a certain age, it becomes clear that they either progress through the professional ranks of their home country or start to look at other options if their careers stall at a certain level. The opportunity to get a degree from the States while still being able to play competitive soccer is an attractive option for many "footballers" from different nations, as this generally does not exist in most countries. Kudos for Coach Koolman and his staff for leaving no stone unturned in looking for talent!
