The New York Red Bulls have fourteen new faces heading to the college soccer ranks next year. In an offseason that saw New York sign six Homegrown Players from the college ranks, National Signing Day saw academy players gather together at Red Bull Arena to sign their commitments, replenishing New York's numbers in the college game.
A wide variety of schools are represented among the players, with two players joining reigning national champions, Stanford, while one will join the numerous other Red Bulls' Academy graduates at Georgetown.
Striker Brian Saramago, who will attend Loyola Baltimore, and defender Mason Deeds, who's committed to Georgetown and is currently in camp with the first team, both played for NYRBII last year. Additionally, Matt Olosunde, U17 National Team standout and one time Manchester United target, announced he will be heading down south to Duke.
