One of the top players born in 2006 in the United States, Corcoran was named to the MLS Next Cup Best XI this past summer.
“I am both honored and excited to be joining Birmingham Legion FC,” said Corcoran. “The club stood out to me as a club that would allow me to grow as a player while competing for championships. I look forward to continuing my growth under Coach Soehn and his staff while soaking up everything I can from the senior players. Players want to do everything they can to bring a title to their supporters, and I will do everything I can to help make that happen.”
