Lima signs homegrown contract with San Jose

December 22, 2016

California senior standout Nick Lima has signed a homegrown player contract with the San Jose Earthquakes, the club announced on Wednesday.

Lima recently wrapped up a standout career at California, appearing in 16 games this past campaign on the way to earning First-Team All-Pac-12 honors.

“We’re very excited to add a promising young player like Nick to our roster,” interim general manager Chris Leitch said in a release. “We have worked closely with Nick since he was in high school, through his time at Cal and with the First Team and PDL. He will make a great addition to the Quakes’ talented young core.”

In four seasons with the Golden Bears, Lima made 51 starts and 70 total appearances. Last fall, he received NSCAA All-Far West Region First Team and First-Team All-Pac-12 honors, and was an Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 in 2014.

“From what I’ve seen of Nick, both at Cal and in training sessions with the First Team, he’s capable of playing both sides of the field and likes to get forward and attack,” Earthquakes head coach Dominic Kinnear said in a release. “He has a great competitive spirit and we’re very excited to see him in preseason with us in the coming months and beyond.”
