Here is a list sorted by college conferences of the top 20 players in each conference(as of October 10th and the season isn't over yet). I'm guessing they're all excited and anxious about the pending January NWSL draft.
For some perspective on what it means for a professional career, take a look at the last year's players. Last year's top 5 ranked college players have started off with successful careers:
2015 top 5 ranked women
Morgan Brian the Houston Dash & United States women's national team
Dagny Brynjarsdottir Portland Thorns FC & the Iceland national team
Sam Mewis Western New York Flash & the United States women's national team
Abby Dahlkemper Adelaide United (Australia W-League) on loan from WNY Flash
Sarah Killion Adelaide United (Australia W-League) on loan from Sky Blue FC
