According to the Oregon State University sports blog, Oregon State men's soccer head coach Steve Simmons announced February 7 that six student-athletes signed National letters of Intent to join the program for the 2011 season, including forward Glenn Paden of Lake Forest Park.

"Paden attends Shorecrest High School in Shoreline, Wash., where he lettered four years in soccer and three years in football. In soccer, he was a two-time Offensive Most Valuable Player, selected All-League two times and was named Seattle Times Player of the Week three different times. He tallied 27 goals and 14 assists as a junior and had 18 goals and seven assists his sophomore year. Paden played club one year for the Sounders Academy in Seattle, Wash., and one year for the Washington Olympic Development Program.

"Glenn may be one of the most natural goal scorers I've seen this year," Simmons said. "His play with the U-18 Sounders Academy team this year has turned the heads of many college coaches across the country. He's strong enough to hold off defenders with his back to goal and is clever enough to be a scoring threat inside and outside of the 18 yard box."
