MLS Prospect Spotlight: Darren Mattocks

Written by Administrator

Akron’s Darren Mattocks is projected as the top pick in many MLS Mock Drafts, and for good reason. The sophomore from Jamaica has put together two sensational seasons for the Zips and looks to be a special player on the professional level for many years to come.

Akron Head Coach Caleb Porter on Mattocks:

“I’ve been trying to identify talent for 12 years and you start to get good enough where it doesn’t take you long. If you’ve got a special one, you get that feeling in your gut and you know immediately. he looked like a thoroughbred racehorse. The first time I saw him take off and the first time I saw him touch the ball, I was like, ‘This guy is the real deal.'”

“I wouldn’t trade that kid for anyone in the country. He is electric and he is a handful.”
