U.S. U-17 goalkeeper Will Pulisic says he’s joining Dortmund


While one Pulisic has rapidly risen through the ranks at Borussia Dortmund, another will soon begin his journey with the Bundesliga powerhouse.

U.S. Under-17 Men’s National Team goalkeeper Will Pulisic announced on Monday that he has signed with Dortmund. Pulisic, who will forego an offer to play college soccer at Duke to join the Bundesliga club, started all three games for the U.S. at last year’s U-17 World Cup.

In joining Dortmund, Pulisic is reunited with his cousin, Christian, a teammate on last year’s World Cup team that has made four senior appearances for the German club this season.

With the move, Pulisic becomes the seventh member of the U-17 World Cup team to ply his trade abroad, joining Haji Wright (Schalke), Matthew Olosunde (Manchester United), Danny Barbir (West Brom), Joshua Perez (Fiorentina), Luca de la Torre (Fulham) and Christian Pulisic.

What do you think of the move? How will Pulisic fare with Borussia Dortmund?

  1. My recruiting class is falling apart. Come back Jeremy! Good thing I am a legend here and will never be fired. Maybe I can go to the other coach with a last name starting with K and borrow Grayson Allen. I heard that he is good at tripping people.

    • LOL…As a Duke alum myself, I have got to say that John Kerr is not living up the legendary standard set by John Rennie. He has not really made the tournament with players that he recruits. He hasn’t made the tournament since 2011(and that was with the last kids that Rennie recruited). GFhat being said, he does a decent job of recruiting.

  2. Technically Haji hasn’t officially joined Schalke yet. Although I think this week may be his birthday, so look for an announcement then.
