yeah, saw on twitter last yr that some DC fans were venting about their youth programs. DC starting up a USL team in NoVA will help them, but as long as RB2 is up and running, hopefully this kid can score on em and do a throat slash after he scores at the DC2 team bench.

There's definitely a back story here as it said he left school earlier this year and hasn't been picked up by anyone yet.

 

Perhaps he had a falling out with DC over something (it happens) or like others suggested perhaps there isn't a good reputation of homegrown experience with DC. 

 

RBNY is right near the top of the league in terms of giving young players chances. For all we know, he knows Muyl, Adams, etc. Either way, ease him into USL 2 and see if there's something there. Kid has talent... there's no denying that from the video clips.

Wonder if he knows Etienne, who also left UVA early to go pro.

Maybe, but until you get a look at his FIFA rating, you can't be sure

That's an interesting thought... hmm.

Potomac, MD.  100 miles north... but originally from Ivory Coast.    Would he count as our first from Le Cote D'Ivoire?

I would have gone with "Going for Koffi?" but still good.

Certainly room for him.  Tyler is gone.  Davis will be here for sure but Rza is never a guarantee. Casseres and Davis being the main, for sure guys on the roster.

This is an unbelievable sweet deal.

Gave up $75k and a portion of the rights if sold. So even if we get just $75k back if sold, we win.
That's good business.

Would love to see this guy slay the scum when he gets to the first team. Love this move.
