High school boys soccer: Dundee-Crown's Julian Ajroja commits to Michigan State
Julian Ajroja liked his chances after attending an invitation-only soccer camp around the Fourth of July at Michigan State.
“There were a couple of the other 2018 commits there, so I kind of got to know them pretty well, and I got to know the coaches.” Ajroja said. “I had a pretty good team, and I just led them pretty well.”
The Spartans’ coaching staff liked what they saw from the Dundee-Crown striker and offered a college scholarship only two days later.
On Thursday, Ajroja announced on Twitter his decision to play for Michigan State. The senior plans on majoring in business.
“It’s close enough to home where my family can still come to my games if they want to,” Ajroja said. “I really liked the whole atmosphere there. Everything just seemed to come into place. They really liked me, and the coaching staff is great. I just liked the whole campus. It felt really good to be there.”
In the fall, Ajroja led the Chargers to their first regional title in program history, going 13-9-1 overall and 6-2 in the Fox Valley Conference. Ajroja was a handful for opposing defenses, collecting 19 goals and 10 assists in 23 games.
