Hat tip to the Washington Post's Steven Goff, who more or less predicted this day was coming.

And it is so: Arun Basuljevic has completed his progression from RBNY's Academy, via Georgetown and the Red Bulls' U-23s, to the first team roster.
NEWS: New York Red Bulls sign Arun Basuljevic as Homegrown Player. https://t.co/M0sePORxjX#REDTogether #RBNY pic.twitter.com/nv4IbQhxIp— New York Red Bulls (@NewYorkRedBulls) January 24, 2017
He joins fellow Homegrown Hoyas Alex Muyl and Brandon Allen on the RBNY MLS squad.
A regular scorer for his college team, Basuljevic is another complementary piece to the RBNY central midfield squadron of Sacha Kljestan, Felipe Martins, Sean Davis, Tyler Adams, and recently-signed Dan Metzger. Over time, it is to be hoped he will find a role that facilitates the more creative aspects of his game.
Incredibly excited to sign with my hometown club @NewYorkRedBulls , can't wait to get to work! #RBNY— Arun Basuljevic (@ArunBasuljevic) January 24, 2017
Welcome aboard, Arun.
