Conway, S.C. – Head Coach Shaun Docking of the 2016 Men’s Soccer Sun Belt Conference Champions Coastal Carolina University, has signed the final recruit of the 2017 signing class.
Tyrone Mondi will transfer to CCU from the University of Northwestern Ohio. The signing of Mondi closes what may well be one of the top recruiting classes in the history of the CCU men’s soccer program as the Chants look to build on last season’s Sun Belt title and second round appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
Mondi hails from Bloemfontein, South Africa and in 2016 was called to the U-20 South African National Team Training Camp. This summer the midfielder has spent his time with the NPSL League playing with the Detroit City FC. He has recorded two goals and seven assists so far.
Mondi served the 2016 season as a redshirt at Northwestern Ohio and will have four years of eligibility remaining with the Chanticleers.
The Chanticleers will report to training camp Tuesday, Aug. 8 to begin preparations for the upcoming 2017 season. CCU will begin the season with an exhibition match at North Carolina Sunday Aug. 13 and will open regular season action Friday, Aug. 25 at George Mason. Their first home match is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 1 against UNC Greensboro at 7:30 p.m.
