U.S. and Canadian youth internationals highlight the latest batch of Top 50 prospects in MLS.
As the new season approaches, U.S. Under-20 World Cup hopefuls come into focus. With form and fitness a factor for the May tournament, a strong start to the season could undermine a player's chance of going to the competition if they aren't released.
Below is a look at the next 10 top prospects, from 21-30.
30. Theo Bair – Forward – Vancouver Whitecaps
DOB: 8/27/1999 | HT: 6-4 | WT: 215 | Last Year’s Ranking: N/A
Sometimes all it takes for a young forward to see the field early in his MLS career is having the requisite physicality. And that’s what Bair brings to Vancouver, listed and looking every part 6-foot-4. He has the tools to see time right away based off that alone; how many minutes he receives will be dictated by the soccer piece, and how he holds the ball up, his runs in behind and fulfills what is asked of him by head coach Marc dos Santos. Bair did get some run in preseason, though he’ll be third on the depth chart entering this season, so he must take opportunities when they come his way.
