Welcome to our regular rundown of the performances of players from Tennessee in the world of NCAA soccer. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only the ACC and Sun Belt played this Fall (all other conferences aside from the Ivy plan on a spring season). Of note, Nashville SC used two late-round SuperDraft picks last year on players from Nashville, so there may be situations where these are names to remember.
Due to time constraints, we’re looking at D-1 men only today.
Clemson (8-2-1, 3-2-1 ACC, ACC Tournament champs)
- Freshman midfielder Brandon Parrish (Fairview High/Darlington Academy (Georgia)) – Played in seven games. Took two shots, one on goal.
North Carolina State (0-6-1, 0-5-1 ACC)
- Junior defender Alex Bautista (Nashville/FC Dallas Academy (Texas)) – Played in all seven games. Scored a goal on three shots (one on goal).
Georgia State (9-2-2, 4-2-0 Sun Belt)
- Senior forward Aris Briggs (Memphis Christian Brothers/Concorde Fire (Georgia)) – Played in all 13 games. Led the Panther in scoring with five goals on 24 shots (12 on goal) and added three assists.
* Howard and Boston College chose not to participate in the Fall season. Junior midfielder Malik Saleh (Memphis Germantown) is the only Tennessean on either roster.
