South Florida commit signs with Orlando City
Goalkeeper Mason Stajduhar has decided to forego college soccer and join Orlando City as a homegrown player.
The 18-year-old from Central Florida, who comes in fourth at his position in rankings at TopDrawerSoccer.com, had verbally committed to play college soccer at South Florida.
The 18-year-old is currently playing in the Orlando City’s team in the U.S. Development Academy and will likely play for the club’s new USL team Orlando City B, which he could have done as an Academy player while maintaining his college eligibility (USL roster rules allow five unpaid amateur players).
Stajduhar is the fourth homegrown player signed by Orlando City, joining Tommy Redding, Harrison Heath and Tyler Turner.
