Chose Maryland Over: Boston College, Georgetown and Miami
I chose Maryland because: "Maryland has a great combination of competitive soccer and challenging academics. The coaching staff made me feel really welcomed. It was one of the first schools I visited, and I fell in love with the campus."
Coach Morgan on Ntone-Kouo: "Natasha comes to us from the PDA in New Jersey and is another ultra competitor. I expect Natasha to play in either the midfield or up front for us. Natasha is special in that she can spin defenders with her back to pressure, but she is so explosive and dynamic she can receive a ball faced up and run past defenders. She can be a nightmare for defenders! In addition, she has really developed her crossing of the ball. Natasha is going to create some great scoring opportunities for our team. Expect a big contribution right away!"
