Kansas City Kansas Community College defender Jahren Barrow did something no other Blue Devils soccer player has ever done.

He is the first KCKCC player to commit to an an NCAA Division I college or university. Barrow will play for Presbyterian of the Big South Conference.

“I had offers from two other schools in New York including one Division I and was planning on going to school there but Presbyterian felt like a better fit,” Barrow said.

Barrow, a centerback, is a two-year starter at KCKCC and an All-Jayhawk Conference pick. He also was the captain.

“A team leader,” said KCKCC head coach Ruben Rodriguez. “He has a boisterous personality and plays aggressively. But I’m just as proud of the fact that he has done well in school. A mature young man, he has done an outstanding job academically.”
