This just in from UW:

Three student-athletes will join the UW men’s soccer team for the spring season head coach Jamie Clark announced this week. Local players Darwin Jones and Dom Dismuke join the team along with New York native Brad Jacobson. “We’re expecting a lot of goals from these three young men,” said Clark. “They are all players with great pace and an appetite for running at defenders. These are the type of attacking players that are fun to watch and a nightmare for the opposing defenses. Adding them to our roster for spring quarter gives them time to understand each other and our system before the fall season.” Dismuke will be a freshman on the 2013 team and hails from Federal Way, Wash. He graduated from Decatur HS in 2012. His senior year of high school, the forward was ranked the seventh-best player in the west by He was a three-time all-league first team selection and two-time all-city pick.

In 2011 at HCC, he scored 15 goals and had 10 assists while being named the team MVP and a regional all-star. From Larchmont, N.Y., Jacobson joins the Dawgs with one year of eligibility left. He played eight games as a freshman at Dartmouth in the midfield and scored one goal. After taking two years off, Jacobsen returned to the field last year playing in sixteen games scoring two goals and tallying one assist. Growing up in N.Y., he trained with the FC Westchester club and earned all-section and all-league honors.
