2023 MLS NEXT Fest: Top players to watch |

Must read

Adyn Torres – Atlanta United FC

A midfielder who’s already inked pro terms with Atlanta United, Torres continues to improve and develop. He’ll look to stay sharp at MLS NEXT Fest ahead of preseason with the pros.

Nathaniel Abraham – Toronto FC

Abraham recently played for Canada at the Under-17 World Cup but remains eligible for the U17s in MLS NEXT. He’s shown promise as a goalkeeper of high potential and was named to the MLS NEXT All-Star team this past summer.

Jonathan Shore – New York City FC

A homegrown signing from earlier this season, Shore is a supremely technical midfielder who can run the show at the youth levels. Putting in a good performance here could set him up well as to make his MLS debut next season.

Diego Colon – BW Gottschee

The storied New York club has enjoyed a strong fall season, putting together a record of 13W-0L-2D. Several players have made an impression, though Colon stands out as an attacking force who can score goals or create them.

Isaiah Kaakoush – Barca Residency Academy

A center back who’s part of the US youth national team pool, Kaakoush has been strong this season playing up with the 2007s. (He was born in ’08).

Titus Alviso – Strikers FC

One of the newcomers on the Strikers FC ’07 squad, Alvios is a hard-working forward who’s a pest to play against. He disrupts the opposing teams in possession and is dangerous getting into the final third.

Dillon Logan – Alexandria SA

Another attacking prospect, Logan is an accomplished player for Alexandria’s Under-17 team. He gets himself into dangerous spots on the field and makes good decisions with the final ball.
