Stanford's Vincent added to U.S. Men's National Team roster

 

Stanford two-time soccer All-American Brandon Vincent was added to the U.S. Men's National Team roster for its January training camp in Carson by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann on Friday afternoon.

Vincent, the 2015 College Cup Defensive Most Outstanding Player, will join fellow Cardinal Jordan Morris, the 2015 College Cup Offensive Most Outstanding Player, at the first USMNT camp of 2016.

The camp, which runs from Jan. 11-Feb. 6 and contains a mix of Senior Team members and a host of players age-eligible for the U-23 MNT, will culminate with friendlies against Iceland on Jan. 31 and Canada on Feb. 5. Both matches will be played at StubHub Center.

"Thank you to U.S. Soccer for this opportunity," Vincent tweeted right after the announcement. "I'm looking forward to earning my stripes for this nation. It is an unbelievable honor."

Vincent, who was in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Friday taking part in the MLS Combine, is projected to be a top pick in next week's MLS SuperDraft.

A MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist and the 2015 Pac-12 Men's Soccer Scholar-Athlete of the Year, Vincent anchored Stanford's back line over the past four years, starting in each and every one of his 80 appearances. The two-time captain also claimed back-to-back Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year honors and is the only person to ever win the award, which was instituted last season. On Dec. 10, he was named a Senior CLASS Second Team All-American and a day later he earned his second consecutive nod as an NSCAA First Team All-American.
