Rutgers’ star goalie Megan McClelland is going pro.
The NCAA’s all time leader in goalkeeping minutes (9,482 to be exact), becomes the seventh Rutgers women’s soccer player to join the NWSL after signing with the Chicago Red Stars. Fellow graduates Amirah Ali, Kristen Edmonds, Casey Murphy, Madison Pogarch, Gabby Provenzano, and Frankie Tagliaferri are all set to appear on active NWSL rosters in 2023.
McClelland, who earned his Master’s in Digital Marketing during her fifth year, recorded 43 solo shutouts, 49 team shutouts, a 0.69 goals-against average and an .801 save percentage during her stellar playing career.
