Mason’s head men’s soccer coach Greg Andrulis announced that local standout midfielder Fro Adu from Rockville, Md., has signed a national letter-of-intent to play with the Patriots beginning in Fall 2007.

Adu, 16, is currently a student at Georgetown Preparatory School, where he has played four years of varsity soccer and served as team captain for the Hoyas his junior season. He was co-captain in 2006. Adu will graduate in June.

Adu is the younger brother of Major League Soccer star Freddy Adu, who played for D.C. United and was traded to Real Salt Lake in December.

Fro Adu was named to the All-IAC team all four years and also earned All-Gazette, as well as All-Examiner honors in 2006. Adu was a member of the Potomac Cougars (U-15 and U-16) and, in 2003 and 2004, the team was crowned Maryland Cup Champions.

“Fro has excellent athletic ability and soccer intelligence, and is a great fit for Mason’s style of play,” said Andrulis. “Although Fro has accomplished so much at a young age, the encouraging thing is that we feel he has just begun to reach his true potential. We expect Fro to make an immediate impact on Mason’s soccer program.”

Adu, who was on the NCSCAA/Adidas All-America Team in 2002 after playing with the U.S. U-15 squad, is currently a member of the U.S. U-17 team. He was listed as one of four Prime-Time players on Rise Magazine’s Greater D.C.’s All-Area Soccer Players and garnered Washington Post All-Met honors in 2006. In addition, Adu was named to the NCSCAA/Adidas All-Maryland Team senior year.

“Fro is a very accomplished person,” said Andrulis. “His outstanding credentials as a soccer player are mirrored by his excellent academic record and tremendous interpersonal relationship skills. Fro comes from a very strong family and has been guided by his mother Emelia and brother Freddy.”
