Oakland adds goalkeeper from England

Eliott Tarney, a 6-foot-3 goalkeeper from Preston, England, has committed to Oakland University for the upcoming fall college season.

Tarney played for the Blackpool FC youth program.

Tarney is the ninth player confirmed for Oakland University's Class of 2012 recruiting class. He joins a largely international class that includes only three domestic high school seniors: Nathan Rose, Alex Serwatka and Jacob VanderLaan from Michigan. The rest of the class is comprised of Mark Hiller from England, Zoumana Cisse from the Ivory Coast, Lars Engen from Norway and Shawn Claud Lawson and Raphael Reynolds from Canada.
