The Vortex Insider

CSU Star Joins the Vortex

Slavisa Ubiparipovic is one of the most talented strikers to ever play for Cleveland State University, earning First Team All-Horizon League honors in both 2008 and 2009.  Now he starts a new challenge and a new chapter in his career, signing with the Ohio Vortex (PASL-Pro). 

Ubiparipovic started 19 games in 2008, registering 5 goals and 4 assists for the Vikings. His stats would continue to improve in 2009 when he tallied 6 goals and 5 assists.  Before joining Cleveland State, Slavisa was a First Team All-Area and Second Team All-Ohio selection at Mentor High School.  Ubiparipovic would initially sign with Xavier University, where he was a member of the 2006 All-Atlantic Rookie Team after starting 17 games for the Musketeers.  He would go on to start 15 games in 2007 before heading home to finish his collegiate career with CSU. 

The 23-year-old striker gained additional experience with the Cleveland Internationals PDL team. Slavisa was on a short trial with the New York Red Bulls after the 2010 MLS SuperDraft, joining his brother Sinisa as a professional.  Slavisa is certainly headed for stardom in the PASL-Pro; he only has to make the transition indoors after so much success in the outdoor game.  He is a difference maker, a pure scorer with unlimited potential.  The Vortex are very lucky to count  him as one of their own.
