Butler Adds Two Men's Soccer Recruits

June 4, 2008

Butler men's soccer coach Kelly Findley has wrapped up his 2008 recruiting class with the addition of two more promising prospects. The third-year Butler coach has received commitments from junior transfer Jamal Robinson and incoming freshman B J. Stapleton to join the Bulldogs this fall.

Robinson, who attended Fort Wayne Northrop High School, is joining the Bulldogs after spending two seasons as a varsity player at Central Florida. He played in 30 matches, including 20 as a starter, for the Knights, and he had the unique achievement of scoring on his first two collegiate shots!

The 5-8, 152-pound midfielder was a three-time Most Valuable Player at Northrop. He was a four-year varsity starter in high school, and he earned All-District, All-Region and All-State honors. Robinson played for the Fort Wayne Fever club team, helping his club squad to regional championships in 2004 and 2005. He was a member of the Indiana ODP State Team, 2001-04, the Region 2 ODP Team and the USL Super Y National Team.

Stapleton, a 5-10, 170-pound midfielder, was a four-year varsity player at Evansville Reitz Memorial High School. He was a three-time All-City performer, a two-time All-District selection and a 2007 All-State player. A member of the Evansville Elite club soccer team, Stapleton played on the ODP Indiana State Team, 2003-06, and was a member of the ODP Region 2 Pool, 2004-06.

Earlier this year, Findley signed high school prospects Matt Hedges of Carmel High School, Ben Kissick of Ben Davis High School, and Scott Vail of New Palestine High School.
