Colin Brezniak transferring from Pitt soccer program to New Mexico

The Pitt men’s soccer team surprised a lot of us last season defeating several ranked opponents and having a strong year. But one of the key players from that team is now moving on.

Forward Colin Brezniak, a sophomore to be, is leaving the team to join New Mexico per TopDrawerSoccer and also his Twitter account.

This is a big blow to the team, obviously. Brezniak wasn’t only talented but also young and had three years of eligibility left. He was third in goals (3) and actually led the team in shots on goal (14). Brezniak was also a prized recruit and one of TopDrawerSoccer’s top 100 freshmen on a list during the season last year.

Still, his loss isn’t an absolute death knell, either. Pitt still has two other very talented forwards in Edward Kizza and Dexter Alexander - both of whom ranked significantly higher on the list with Kizza at No. 7 and Alexander at No. 34.

You never hate to lose a player like Brezniak but Pitt at least has some good young depth to help lessen the blow.
