    So US Soccer announced yesterday the 20-player roster for Olympic qualifying later this month and college soccer was pretty well-represented, relatively speaking, including - gasp! - a player who played four years of college soccer.

    In total, nine players who played college soccer made the US roster, playing a combined 19 seasons of college soccer.

    Reggie Cannon, D, FC Dallas - UCLA (1)
    Hasani Dotson, M, Minnesota United - Oregon State (4)
    Jeremy Ebobisse, F, Portland Timbers - Duke (2)
    Matt Freese,GK, Philadelphia Union - Harvard (2)
    Aaron Herrera, D, Real Salt Lake - New Mexico (3)
    Jonathan Lewis, F/M, Colorado Rapids - Akron (1)
    JT Marcinkowski, GK, San Jose Earthquakes - Georgetown (3)
    Mark McKenzie, D, Philadelphia Union - Wake Forest (1)
    Jackson Yueill, M, San Jose Earthquakes - UCLA (2)

    All told, 73 U23 players have been called up for at least one camp since last March. Of those, 23 played college soccer.

    Besides the above players, these players who played (or still play) college soccer were called in before qualifying:

    Drake Callender, GK, Inter Miami - California (4)^
