Another top prospect from the class of 2021 is going the professional route.

Atlanta United announced the signing of Tyler Wolff to a Homegrown contract on Thursday. Wolff sits at No. 22 in the 2021 Boys IMG Academy player rankings.

“Tyler is a young attacking player who has shown a lot of potential and we’re excited that his development will continue at Atlanta United,” Vice President and Technical Director Carlos Bocanegra said in a statement. “Since joining the Academy, he’s shown the drive and determination to get to that next level. We’ve been able to challenge Tyler in high-level academy matches, the USL environment, and First Team environment and he’s shown he’s belonged at each level. On the field, he has the quality and versatility to play anywhere across the front four and we believe he has capability to grow into a key contributor at the pro level.”

Wolff joined the Atlanta United Academy for the 2019-20 season, scoring 14 goals in 11 games. Prior to that, he played four seasons for the Crew SC Academy, as his father Josh served as an assistant coach to the Crew under Gregg Berhalter.
