FIU men’s soccer coach Munga Eketebi has added ten newcomers to his roster, the third-year coach announced Wednesday. The class includes four defenders, three midfielders, two forwards and a goalkeeper.

Nicolas Jones comes to FIU from the Clearwater Academy Chargers. He is a center back that Eketebi described as a defensive pillar for the Chargers, where he was named team MVP his freshman year.

Phillip and Chris Lamare will be making the trip south from Boca Raton as the brothers have transferred to FIU from rival Florida Atlantic. Chris is a midfielder that redshirted in 2008, while older brother Phillip is a goalkeeper. Phillip Lamarre, who is seen by the coaches as a possible MLS prospect, was a three-year starter at FAU where he compiled a 21-27-4 record with a 1.52 GAA.

Nicolas Chase is a transfer from Lee University and attended Killian high school in Miami. He is a midfielder who can play on either flank. While at Killian he was a 2006-07 First Team All Miami Dade selection.

Joseph Dawkins is one of four international recruits, coming to Miami from New Zealand. Dawkins is a center back that could play as a defensive mid. He played for the youth national team and earned several awards in his prep career including the Senior Player of the Year award in 2008. Anthony Hobbs, a midfielder, is another incoming player from New Zealand that also played on the youth national team.

Sebastian Frings and Emmanuel Josephson round out the international crop as they come from Germany. Frings was sent to coach Eketebi by a former German National Team assistant coach. He can play forward, but Eketebi expects him to “pull the strings” for the team from the midfield position. Josephson is a forward that is expected to come in and contribute in October and November.

Justin Day is a very athletic, strong and fast midfielder from American Heritage high school.

Leonardo Martinez rounds out the incoming class as he is transferring from Clayton University. He is a technical midfielder with good quickness and speed.
