    Let’s hope he’s s good one for us, the right pick and arguable first overall talent on the board . No brainer with Amaya taken by Cincy

    I would guess Quakes media staff are working on that!

    5'-8" 150 pounds, I hope he doesn't get bossed around by the physicality of MLS. Welcome anyway.

    From the article, it seems he could develop into the #10 we've all be crying for here. Sounds, though, as though he has a lot of growing up to do in the meantime. Good luck!

    Yeah, 150 pounds for 5'8" is not particularly light, and given that players like Thompson noticeably put on muscle post becoming a pro, it's pretty easy to imagine the kid putting on 5 or 10 pounds.

    What's the consensus, will he be playing for Reno or SJ once the season starts?

    I would guess Quakes to start the season, down to Reno when the USL season starts, and then back up to the Quakes after a few months. When did Jackson Yueill come back to the Quakes from Reno, I think it was around June...

    I found this older video of him. He's got some sick skills.

    His ball control, vision and acceleration all look like they could translate to MLS right now, and he's only just turned 19 -- I didn't see a single bad first touch in that video. He also was pretty involved defensively it seems so he could play on the wing if his long speed is sufficient. I bet he logs some minutes in MLS this year, though he will certainly need to add a little muscle as he gets older.

    Isn't winger his primary position?

    Yeah but in Almeyda's system they are counted on to man man the opposing fullback/ wing back.

    From that ESPN article:

    "I just hope for the kid that the right group gets him, that understands how to develop a player because if they do, there's senior national team potential on the back end."

    How lucky Siad is that we fired Mika
