ETSU women’s soccer head coach Adam Sayers announced the signing of two North Carolina recruits on Wednesday, adding Brittney Jones (Germanton, N.C.) and Michaela Daniels (Charlotte, N.C.) to the 2015 recruiting class.
“We are looking forward to working with Brittney and Michaela,” Sayers said. “They are great additions to our squad, and we are eagerly awaiting their arrival at ETSU.”
