The New York Red Bulls have apparently tapped into their Homegrown talent ahead of the MLS Draft.
According to Goal USA, the Red Bulls are set to sign Georgetown teammates Brandon Allen and Alex Muyl, Virginia midfielder Derrick Etienne and Maryland midfielder Mael Corboz.
Muyl, the playmaker for Georgetown in 2015, was a second-team All-Big East selection and recorded four goals and nine assists. His teammate and MAC Hermann Trophy finalist, Allen, scored 12 goals and added seven assists this campaign. He finishes his college career as the all-time leading goal-scorer for Georgetown with 50 goals.
Meanwhile, Etienne completed just one season with 2014 NCAA champion Virgina, but was one of the best attacking talents on the Cavaliers roster, head coach George Gelnovatch told SBI in November. He was named as an ACC All-Freshman selection in 2015.
Defensive midfielder Corboz completed his senior campaign with Maryland this year, and looked dominant once again. He recorded his breakout year in 2014, scoring a Big Ten-leading 10 goals. He honed in on his playmaking abilities this season, racking up 12 assists and two goals.
