Center Back Chris Richards, Crystal Palace (England): Seems to be growing as a player. Needs consistent playing time. Cameron Carter-Vickers, Glasgow Celtic (Scotland): Good in Scotland, Good in the C-ship. Solid at the World Cup. Walker Zimmerman, Nashville SC: Kind of a default here, for now. But not a bad default. Miles Robinson, Atlanta United FC: New question marks after the Gold Cup. Jalen Neal, Los Angeles Galaxy: 6-3 and a sweet passer. Hit his current level at Gold Cup, but a load more ceiling there. Auston Trusty, Birmingham City (England): Solid defense. Mark MacKenzie, Genk (Belgium): There's something about him I don't quite trust. But seemed to have a strong season. Jack Elliott, Philadelphia Union: Is he a little down this year? Matt Miazga, FC Cincinnati: Defense is iffy, but the team could use a tough guy. Justin Che, Brondby (Denmark): Has the potential. Lets see what Denmark holds. Josh Wynder, Benfica (Portugal): 2024 seems like it is too soon. Brandon Craig, Philadelphia Union: Had a strong U20. But seems like there's a ceiling there. Tim Ream, Fulham (England): The longer he stays healthy and playing, the higher he will go. John Brooks, Hoffenheim (Germany): Don't get me started. Philippe Sandler, NEC Nijmegen (Netherlands): dual nat. Solid year in a solid league.
