From US Soccer Wire - You guys know which name I'm excited about! U.S. Under-23 MNT Roster GOALKEEPERS (2): Doug Warren (Clemson), Jason White (Princeton); DEFENDERS (8): Nelson Akwari, Ian Joy (Kidderminster FC – Scotland), Ricky Lewis (Clemson), David Stokes (North Carolina), Scott Thompson (UCLA), Zach Whitbread (Liverpool – England), Chris Wingert (St. John’s), Alex Yi; MIDFIELDERS (6): Kenny Arena (Virginia), Kyle Beckerman (Colorado Rapids -- MLS), Brian Carroll (Wake Forest), Ned Grabavoy (Indiana), Logan Pause (North Carolina), ), Seth Trembly (Colorado Rapids -- MLS); FORWARDS (4): Edson Buddle (Columbus Crew), Alecko Eskandarian (Virginia), David Testo (North Carolina), Jason Thompson (East Illinois). Whitbred, baby! He's playing up (he turns 18 in the fall) but this is first appearance with the US and this should be a good indicator he's gonna play with the 20s this fall, assuming he's the real deal. Also interesting that Grabavoy, an 83, is also playing up, especially since the 20s are playing this week. Besides Grabavoy and Whitbred, this is the first look with the 23s for several of these players including Jason White, Ian Joy, Scot Thompson, Kenny Arena, Logan Pause, David Testo and Jason Thompson. I doubt many of these guys will make the final cut but I'm glad Mooch is looking at them. I'll share some other thoughts on these guys in my next post.
