So this will be an on going thread.

Here are a few young players who are impressing me this season:

Jordan Morris: After having a few standard performances to start the season, the last three games he has really come alive. Scoring three goals in three consecutive games with two goals as being game winners. He will have to continue with this progress to alleviate the pressure that is still on him.

Jordan Allen: Has been really good for RSL this season. Very industrious wide player on either wing, in RSL's 4-3-3, with a good amount of skill. Got his first goal of the season against Houston yesterday with a rocket. He could be an option for the USMNT in the months and years to come.

Justin Glad: Very young CB who has a ton of potential. Knocked Olave out of RSL's starting 11 yesterday.

Tommy Redding: Another young CB with a lot of potential. Took the starting CB position away from Aurellian Collin at Orlando from the start of the season.

My guy Johnathan Campbell- CB for the Fire. Scored his first goal yesterday (had a perfectly legitimate game winner incorrectly ruled offsides against NYCFC a few weeks back) for the club but it's his soccer brain and on field intelligence defensively that earn all the credit. He can play the ball from the back very decently for a tallish player. Was talked about as possibly the best CB coming out of college last year, he's the heir apparent to the likes of Hedges and Birnbaum as young cbs who have done well in MLS.

Jonathan Campbell is another CB that has become a regular starter for the Fire. He scored his first goal against DC United yesterday. Ham created a thread about him on here somewhere.

While not really setting the league on fire, a couple young players who are slowly building a good start to the season have been:
Christian Roldan has been fairly solid for Seattle to start the season. His ability to play anywhere in midfield makes him a nice versatile player. With a bit more seasoning he could be a good depth option for the USMNT in a couple years.
Kekuta Manneh has had a quite start to the season, but when hot he is one to keep an eye on. Needs to be more consistent, but most young players have difficulty with that.
Marky Delgado, while not flashy has been good to start the season. Able to play across the midfield he has been solid to start the season.

Tommy Redding: Another young CB with a lot of potential. Took the starting CB position away from Aurellian Collin at Orlando from the start of the season.

Not only did Redding take Collin's spot, Orlando shipped Collin out. Trading him to Red Bulls. With him out of the picture Redding will be the week in, week out starter without any real pressure from his backup. I expect him to potentially be the captain of the U20 side in next february's qualifying.

Tommy Redding will probably be the key player on D- I expect CCV and EPB to be with their clubs and not get released.

The young soccer careers of Rubio Rubin and Brady Scott are headed in completely opposite directions.
