TAMPA, Fla. – K-W United FC captain and Syracuse University transfer Sergio Camargo leads the second edition of the 2016 PDL Top Prospects list.
Camargo, ranked second in the first edition, has continued his stellar play for the Great Lakes Division side in 2016, scoring three goals and providing three assists in five appearances this regular season.
Many new faces, including OKC Energy U23's Mauro Cichero, join the top 20. After being named a MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist in 2015 with Southern Methodist University, Cichero has started the 2016 regular season in great form, scoring one goal in each of the Energy U23’s four games this season.
The Des Moines Menace's Nico Campbell, Lane United FC's Joel Rydstrand, the Carolina Dynamo’s Brandt Bronico and Sounders FC U23’s David Olsen also join the top 20.
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 serves 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.
