The only Dane on the list!
Every year, a few months into the college season, renowned media outlet TopDrawerSoccer releases their “Top 100 Freshmen” list. Here are their picks for the 100 most promising freshmen in college football in the US.
With more than 10,000 players to choose from, making it onto that list is quite an achievement.
Oliver Møller is the ONLY Dane included in this year’s list, coming in at 83rd place.
Oliver's season so far
Oliver has had a great first season so far for
Florida Atlantic University
– or just the Owls as they are called.
The Owls are in NCAA Division 1 and play in The American Athletic Conference (AAC) which is one of the most competitive college leagues in the US. Here are big teams like the University of Memphis, University of Central Florida and
Southern Methodist University
are among the opponents.
The Owls’ statistics for the season are currently at 3-6-3.
So they have 3 wins, 6 losses and 3 draws.
Oliver has started in all 12 games he has played so far and has been an asset to the team from day 1.
Owls typically line up in a 4-3-3 formation, with Oliver starting on one of the wings.
He has scored 1 goal and made 3 assists.

(It’s always a delight to hear the commentators pronounce a Danish surname like Oliver’s…“Moeller Jensen!”)

From BK Forward to the USA: Oliver's journey to the USA.
Oliver was actually born in the US but grew up in Denmark.
He just turned 20 and graduated from Brøndby Gymnasium in 2022.
We started working with Oliver shortly after he graduated and he has now been in the US for a few months.
Oliver is a versatile offensive player who has spent most of his youth playing for
. First in the various youth leagues and later for the first team in both the Danish 2. Division and 3. Division. A true soccer player.
He needed new experiences and challenges – without compromising his sporting ambitions. So together we set out to find a scholarship in the US.
Oliver is technically sound, has plenty of speed and plays with great aggression in all phases of the game. The interest from the different universities was therefore high and Oliver had several good options to choose from.
The choice fell on Florida Atlantic University. A university that, in addition to its sporting quality and great facilities, is located in Boca Raton. A place that looks like paradise.
Here he plays on a team with
and Daniella Diaz who is part of the Owls women’s team.
Not the only NSSA player on the all-time list...
This year, Oliver is the only Dane and the only one of our clients to make the Top 100 Freshmen list!
However, he’s not the only NSSA client to make the list over the years…
Since 2021, we’ve actually had 6 different clients on the list.
In 2021, Alexander Hjælmhof
Gry Boe Thrysøe
places on the list.
In 2022, Nikolaj Røjel
and Alexander Stjernegaard places on the list.
For now, however, all focus should go to Oliver Møller. And deservedly so. Congratulations Viking!
