Sporting KC II has signed SKC Academy product Jacob Davis to a professional contract, the team announced this week.
The Michigan native relocated to the Kansas City region to join the SKC Academy back in 2017 (previously, he played in the Development Academy for Vardar). Since the 2017-18 season, he's made a total of 54 appearances playing primarily as a central midfielder.
During the 2019 USL Championship season, Davis signed as an amateur with Sporting KC II, making five appearances and dishing out two assists.
Ranked at No. 91 in the 2020 Boys IMG Academy player rankings, Davis earned a call-up to the U.S. U17 MNT for last year's Nike Friendlies. He also earned TDS Best XI honors at the 2019 Generation adidas Cup in Frisco, Texas.
