TopDrawerSoccer.com's J.R. Eskilson caught up with Sporting Kansas City U18 Academy goalkeeper Andrew Dittemore last week for the site's "Recruting Insider" series. Dittemore, a junior at Gardner Edgerton High School, has earned Top Drawer's title as the "Top GK in Midwest" after taking over in net for the U18's this season in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy.
"The 17-year-old has been in net ever since Turner's departure, and helped Sporting KC U18 to a 5-4-2 record in the 11 games that he has started in goal. The 6-3 net minder has grabbed the attention of a few college coaches with his play during that stretch."
The site also released their Top 150 rankings today for the Class of 2014, with two Sporting KC U16 players making the cut. Joey Piatczyc (No. 1 in Heartland) comes in at No. 59 while fellow midfielder Cole Stevenson (No. 2 in Heartland) is ranked No. 101.
