Omar Gonzalez, the 6-foot-5 junior defender who helped Maryland win the NCAA championship, has turned down two offers from Mexican clubs to sign a Generation Adidas contract with MLS, the Insider has learned. The Dallas native signed with Proactive Sports Management, which also handles, among others, half the USA national team, Brad Friedel, Ryan Nelsen and just got a deal for Michael Parkhurst in Denmark.
Meantime, I am hearing that fellow Terps Jeremy Hall, a junior, and Rodney Wallace, a sophomore, are signing with Wasserman Media Group, another agency titan with clients in Europe and MLS. Indications are that they plan to join MLS as well, but I'm still awaiting confirmation. If so, all three Terps seem certain to hear their names called early in the Jan. 15 draft.
