So the issue is that a professional player isn't eligible to play at the academy level in the United States. However, according to someone with Red Bull since he has not played a professional match, he maintains eligibility.

NYCFC just signed a 14 year old homegrown player, and he's playing on NYCFC's U17 team.

I'm thinking the rules with MLS Next are different than they were with USSDA.

EDIT: I stand corrected:
"Players that have participated or are participating in any college program at any level (Division I, Junior College, etc.) are not permitted to participate in any MLS NEXT Events unless the MLS NEXT Club seeking to register such a Player is granted approval by PDev following Clubs submission of an MLS NEXT Player Reinstatement Form. As further described in the MLS NEXT Player Reinstatement Form, examples in which PDev may allow such Players to participate in MLS NEXT include, but are not limited to, the following: An MLS NEXT age-eligible Player who is under a professional contract with an MLS NEXT Clubs professional Affiliate. "

Well, this is a huge win for player development!

Side note, I've heard NYCFC's youth teams are killer.

As always, insightful and informative .... thanks for that. 

 

Spoke to someone who has a kid in another MLS academy. He said NYCFC academy looked very strong player wise - looked a step above to him in tournaments. I trust his judgement.  He's a fan of another team and his view was both RB and his team have to look out 3 years down the road.
