We are delighted to announce, Daniel Wilson, has agreed a scholarship to McKendree University, located in Lebanon, Illinois. The 'Bearcats' play in the Great Lakes Valley Conference of the NCAA Division 2.
The Dundalk FC man will join up with his new teammates in August, ahead of the Fall 2021 season. In the latest addition of the Top 25 poll, McKendree came in at number 25 in the nation, after a stellar 15-4-2 season in 2019 (no competitive soccer in 2020 due to the coronavirus). The Bearcats fell in the 2nd round of the NCAA National Tournament going down 2-0 to Ohio Valley University, to end their season.
McKendree University was founded in 1828, making it the oldest university in the state of Illinois. Notable alumni include, San Francisco 49ers wide-receiver Matt Cole, and UFC fighter Andrew Sanchez.
