I'm all for college, but not when it come to top soccer talent. I hope he does well, but my expectations for him just dropped a bit!

Disappointing news. After the Nike tour I cant believe he couldnt get a pro contract somewhere, Europe or MLS

Isn't this actually big news for MLS. This means by going to college he will be staying in America and not playing in Europe

Seems that family plays a big part in his soccer decisions, I'm positive he could of easily fond some European suitors.

I don't know if he had a European teams interested or not but if he didnt that makes this point mute but I never got the keep him close to home/ not all people are going to make it and an education is a good backup. Don't get me wrong I'm not a hater of the college to pro system in the US but for me the college years are some of the most important development years and if your focusing on school and other things like college life you may not be concentrating enough as you should. I know you might be leaving your family behind and you may want that education but you have a chance to go pro here! Most of us would die to be in that position. You can always go back to school and get an education but you only have a short period where you can play professionally. Sometimes you have to go I have a chance to do something big here and I have to take it. That being said if he didnt get any good offers college is a fine option.

The final stretch of the English league season is upon us, with several Americans on the verge of relegation with their teams.
