Stanford's women soccer team is getting the nation's leading scorer. The school announced Monday that Taylor Uhl, who led the nation in scoring at forward for Minnesota, has transferred to Stanford and will be immediately eligible to play this fall.

Collegiate soccer has a one-time transfer exception, unlike football, basketball and ice hockey, provided an institution does not have an objection. Stanford received a waiver from Minnesota that makes Uhl immediately eligible.

"It was a huge need for us," Stanford coach Paul Ratcliffe said in a Stanford news release. "We've been looking for a goal-scorer and a prominent forward, and she's one of the best in the country. We're really excited that she's coming to Stanford."

Uhl had 21 goals and nine assists for the Golden Gophers, who reached the Big Ten conference tournament and went 11-7-2.

She'll be part of a Cardinal front line that returns all three starters, including top scorers Courtney Verloo and Chioma Ubogagu.
