Maryland midfielder Matt Kassel has spent the past three years as a potential Homegrown Player signing for the New York Red Bulls.
The wait is finally over.
Kassel has reached a contract agreement with the Red Bulls to become the team's third Homegrown Player, sources told SBI on Monday.
One of the Red Bulls' first highly-regarded academy products, Kassel spent three years at the University of Maryland, winning an NCAA title as a freshman before establishing himself as one of the better midfielders in the ACC over the past two years.
He joins forwards Juan Agudelo and Giorgi Chirgadze as Red Bull Homegrown Players on the senior team roster.
