Matt Miazga became the third homegrown player signing this season for the New York Red Bulls when he completed his first professional deal on Thursday.
The 17-year-old centerback is a product of the Red Bulls Academy and a member of the U.S. Under-18 squad. Miazga had previously committed to the University of Michigan before the Clifton, N.J. product decided to join the Red Bulls.
“I had other offers, but I chose the New York Red Bulls because that is where my heart lies,” Miazga said in a statement on the club’s website. “One day, I hope to play for the first team in Red Bull Arena in front of our wonderful fans and contribute to the club’s success in MLS. I want to thank my family and our youth academy coaches for helping me to realize my dream.”
