COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Maryland sophomore goalkeeper Zack Steffen is leaving college to sign with Freiburg of Germany's Bundesliga.
Maryland made the announcement Friday on its website.
The 19-year-old from Downingtown, Pennsylvania, led the Terrapins to consecutive regular-season and conference titles and was defensive MVP at last year's NCAA College Cup, where Maryland lost to Notre Dame.
Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski says "this is a tremendous opportunity for Zack."
Other Maryland players who have signed with European clubs include Taylor Twellman and Robbie Rogers.
