Terps Prospects (Continued)
Maryland junior Jeremy Hall, a left-sided midfielder with speed and attacking prowess, has been on MLS's radar since early in the college season, and after scoring a team-best 14 goals for the surging Terrapins heading into this weekend's College Cup, his stock continues to rise. But will the former U-17 international from Florida forego his senior year and make the jump to MLS or Europe?
"Jeremy loves it here and he is very dedicated to his education," Terps Coach Sasho Cirovski said. "I think it would take something pretty substantial for him to leave early. Sometime middle of next week we will sit down and talk about it. I will get some more information and help him research different opportunities."
Translation: If the money is right, he'll go pro.
Junior defender Omar Gonzalez is in a similar situation, but as we explained in a feature story last weekend, the 6-foot-5 central back also might have options in Mexico. (Both of his parents are from Monterrey and he said he was approached about joining the Tigres youth system before committing to Maryland.)
Already, Boston College star Alejendro Bedoya has signed with Swedish club Orebro. "Orebro has been tracking Alejandro for over a year and were very aggressive in trying to sign him," agent Patrick McCabe told Soccer America magazine. "They believe he can make a significant contribution to their team next season."
