Fourteen academy players sign college letters of intent

Seattle Sounders FC Logo.jpgFourteen players from the Sounders FC’s U-18 youth academy teams have signed national letters of intent to play in college. The signing period opened Wednesday.

“We are very proud of the student athletes in the Sounders FC Academy program,” said Darren Sawatzky, the organization’s director of youth development, in a news release. “The Letter of Intent day is an exciting time for these boys considering the hard work and focus they have spent in the classroom and on the field. We wish all the players the very best and look forward to watching their progress.”

Here are those players, who are eligible to be homegrown signings (meaning the Sounders can sign them at anytime in lieu of the draft):
