Kid wants to play for the US and seems to have a ton of potential at CM. Hopefully the US doesn't mess with that and keeps him at CM.

Could be the next Patrick Viera? His potential sure makes it seem like a Viera type. 6'4" at 15. He could be 6'6" by 18.

Screw U-17's Tab Ramos should be looking at him for the U-20's. He will be 17 in 2015.

20 by 2018. It's very possible that he may be a full USMNT player especially if he is playing first team soccer with Arsenal.

Agreed, I am pretty sure, Brunei would not be a challenge for us.

I think the US will more than likely move him to CB, look at danny barbir. He was a fwd at PDA and he became know for his play there(got trials in Europe), then moved to CB when he came to the national team. Plus we have de la torre(fulham) and albelo(hoffenheim) at CM, both have thrived.

Don't think Ramos will call him up, unless he plays up at arsenal.

Not sure, prob so..guess he couldn't cut it at Arsenal.

Spurs is a little move down but still a very good academy/club.

If he can more opportunities with Spurs then it's a good move. Good luck to him.

Spurs are as good as arsenal in development. Heck my do him even better going to spurs. And everytime he played at his age level he always got very good reviews, high praises. Vsry soon he will get called with the sub 17s.

Well that's good to hear. I don't know much about the pedigree of youth academies in England so it's good to know the drop in level of play wasn't too far if even at all.
