Mark Matula (Defender, Eastlake HS): Drexel University

Michael Steele (Midfielder, Insight School): Oregon State University

Jacob Hauser-Ramsey (Forward, Shorewood HS): Cincinnati University

Jordan Morris (Midfielder, Mercer Island HS): Stanford University

Ike Crook (Forward, Todd Beamer HS): College of Charleston

One well-known academy prospect, defender Jalen Markey of O’Dea High School, who has been involved with U.S. youth national teams, recently decommitted from Syracuse.

The Sounders academy will host an open house in July to allow families a chance to learn more about the teams and programs.

Elsewhere, the University of Washington has signed nine players, including several local products from Crossfire Premier, Eastside FC and the Portland Timbers academy.
