Three college players are heading into camp with the U.S. women's national team.
Jaelin Howell (Florida State(w)), Catarina Macario (Stanford(w)) and Emily Fox (North Carolina(w)) were among 27 players called into a training camp to be held from Jan. 9-22 in Florida, with games against Colombia scheduled for January 18 and 22.
The latter two are in the middle of their senior seasons and could be picked in the 2021 edition of the NWSL Draft next week. Howell helped Florida State win the ACC tournament in a shortened fall season.
Macario remains ineligible to play for the USWNT, but is on track to become eligible after securing her citizenship at the end of 2020.
