Nine New England Revolution U18 Academy members have signed their national letters of intent to play college soccer across the Northeast. One of those players won Signing Day. Nine members of the New England Revolution Under-18 team have announced their commitments to college soccer programs, which they'll join this summer ahead of the fall 2014 semester. Additional U18 players are expected to finalize their collegiate commitments in the coming months. Those players and commitments are:

Luke Albertini (North Attleborough, Mass.) - Central Connecticut State University

Danny Apajee (Cranston, R.I.) - Syracuse University

Freddie Ferre (Waltham, Mass.) - University of Massachusetts Lowell

Bruce Johnson (Brewster, Mass.) - Tufts University

Declan McCabe (Weston, Mass.) - Georgetown University

Will Rasid (Wilbraham, Mass.) - University of New Hampshire

Lucas Ritzer (Sutton, Mass.) - Providence College

Christian Sady (North Andover, Mass.) - Harvard University

Wes Turner (Newton, Mass.) - Northeastern University

"We are excited to watch the continued development of these student-athletes at the collegiate level," said Revolution Director of Youth Development and Under-16 Head Coach Bryan Scales. "They have all represented the New England Revolution with professionalism and class, and I know that they'll continue to thrive at these universities both on and off the field."

Most football players get in front of a camera and announce their commitments by putting on a hat. In New England, there is only one way to announce your college commitment. TopDrawerSoccer.com's Will Parchman approves of midfielder Declan McCabe's method of signing his national letter of intent to Georgetown:

Yes, sitting outside and signing your letter in a foot of snow during miserable winter weather. What is more New England than that?
