Jordan Morris turning pro
It appears as though there will be no shock announcement from Stanford star forward Jordan Morris this year as Goal is reporting that the junior will be forgoing his senior year to turn pro.
Morris has the largest homegrown contract offer in MLS history on the table from Seattle Sounders or the option to turn pro elsewhere as a full U.S. international. A first-team All-American and MAC Hermann Trophy finalist, Morris scored 13 goals and had three assists while helping to guide Stanford to its first ever national championship this season.
The 21-year-old was expected to turn pro after his sophomore season last year but shocked the soccer world by returning for his junior year. He left the possibility of a return for his senior season open despite U.S. men’s national team coach saying publicly that it was time for him to turn professional.
