    So we had 4 intl spots left. If Kubel signs then we have 3 left. Endoh and Alseth were reportedly being invited to camp, no way both make the team now, with likely tam internationals

    Tim Kubel | Louisville | OB
    Kubel’s right-footed service has been some of the best in the ACC for the last few seasons, and he garnered repeated GA interest prior to his senior season. He gets forward well and whips dangerous balls in both from the run of play and set pieces. This season Kubel added a more consistent ability to cut back onto his left foot and play a more unexpected ball. The biggest question from MLS teams will likely be his defending ability – attack has certainly been his greatest contribution throughout his college career. – AJB

    What shirt is he wearing in that pic? Looks like the stylized T TFC have been using. Wondering if that's being worked into our away kit?

    That looks to be a combine shirt.

    So that's two RWBs who will seemingly struggle to adapt to a back-four. Hope that TAM RB is still on his way.

    Highly unlikely to make the team. The depth international era is over.

    Not necessarily, the fact that 2 of our DPs are domestics, not to mention 7 of our 11 starters (Gio, Vasquez, mavinga,hasler) + key domestic subs (hagglund, Ricketts, Osorio) gives us the leeway for some international depth beyond the main 17 (ie last year alseth, endoh, Cheyrou)

    I've never seen him play, but experience in the shalke and Dortmund b teams is encouraging and worth a look for our 8th international spot, in my opinion

    That's some decent experience for a 2nd rounder....

    Lots of goals and assists for a 5'9 college defender. Suggests some technical ability. Good pick, possibly.

    Braintrust has been watching him it seems but I still suspect they will spring for a guy to compete with Hasler this season.

    The picks from these later rounds will be lucky just to get a USL contract. No ramifications for international slots or roster slots for the first team.

    Wow, all defenders and a Keeper. And they're looking at van der Wiel too? Going to be quite the mix this season if they're all fighting for places.

    Most likely. But you never know, Alseth was a third rounder and he made the team and an international spot.
