TAMPA, Fla. – FC Tucson and Wake Forest University midfielder Jon Bakero headlines the first 20 players on the PDL Top Prospects list for the 2016 season.
Syracuse transfer Sergio Camargo, who is a key player for K-W United FC, comes in at second on the list. Fresno Fuego's Christian Chaney most recently scored five goals in a two-game span during Week 3 of the PDL regular season, and is third on the list.
More than 20 scouts across North America provide the PDL with valuable insight on players who are performing at the highest level within the league, possess strong technical and tactical qualities and have the potential to play at the professional level. The Top Prospects list will serve as a useful resource for professional clubs who are interested in identifying and scouting high-level performers.
The PDL will be updating the Top Prospects list throughout the 2016 season.
