Baylor Graduate Danquah Signs With UC Santa Barbara

Wednesday, July 27, 2022

Baylor soccer graduate David Danquah signed with University of California at Santa Barbara this week.  Danquah, a native of Ghana, tore his ACL three days before his first senior season game last year but still helped lead his team as caption to a state title and #3 National Ranking. 

Danquah was a two-time nominee for TN Gatorade player of the year. 

"He is a special player that has been a blessing to coach," Baylor head coach Curtis Blair said.  "It has been fun see this young man mature and grow into the man he is today. Can't wait to watch him play next year."

Danquah also played for the Chattanooga Red Wolves Academy. 


According to UC Santa Barbara, Danquah was also recruited by the University of North Carolina, but ultimately chose UCSB.

"David was one of the best high school players in the country last year," Gouchua head coach Vom Steeg said. "He can play any of the attacking positions and can contribute officially both as a passer of the ball or a scorer. Not surprising, he was recruited to some of the top soccer programs and we are pleased he decided to join our program. Originally from Ghana, David will follow a long line of former Gaucho greats who came from Ghana and had very successful careers at UCSB."
