"Matt has not formally spoken to us about what he's doing next year. But we sat down with Matt in the offseason a couple weeks ago, and we thought it would be in Matt's best interests to continue in college, especially with no reserve league,'' said sporting director Jeff Agoos.
"We felt - and we still feel - he has a bright future with the Red Bulls. It was more of a timing issue.''
Agoos added: "We've invited Matt in to train with us when possible, likely the summer months. We strongly feel he's best served in college, especially getting the education afforded him at Maryland.''
