From The Green Bay Press Gazette: Lenius is among 10 recruits in a “class that has the opportunity to go down as one of the best we have had at Saint Louis University in a long time,” said Billikens head coach Mike McGinty on the team’s website. McGinty said Lenius, who’s ranked the 34th-best midfielder in the nation by TopDrawerSoccer.com, is a “smart” and “very tenacious” player.
Lenius is excited to play for a St. Louis program that he said has turned out more professional soccer players than any college in the country. The Billikens, members of the Atlantic 10 Conference, reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament and finished 14-5-2 overall last season.
“Freshman year is basically to build you up to be something bigger in the future,” he said. “They’ll be putting you on weights so you get bigger and stronger. I might not see too much of the field, but just practicing with those guys alone will be something incredible and I’ll be getting better and better.”
Brady played up two years on the U17 Bay Aliance team coached by Derek Rhodes. When Brady’s teammates left high school he chose to forgoe his Junior and Senior year of high school to play in the United States Developmental Academy.
