2023 NWSL Draft Prospects – Midfielders

Summer Yates, Washington
(courtesy @summer10yates on Instagram)

The table below contains collegiate midfielder prospects for the 2023 NWSL draft. Since the Pre-Season Dossier was trimmed down this year as an experiment after last years draft, this table includes midfielders from that list, and from other schools as well. Along with listing their names and universities, it also shows if they’ve played on a national or youth national team (Y/NT), how many years they’ve been a Conference All-American (AA), how many minutes they played in their freshman season, along with their career starts, goals (G), and assists (A). And per start totals as well (GPG, APG). Feel free to read why we find some of these categories important here.
